  • Oscar L. Huber, March 11, 1931, to Dec. 25, 2020.
Oscar Huber died on Dec. 25, 2020, after a brief battle with COVID-19. He was born near Muleshoe, Texas on March 11, 1931.

Following Oscar’s graduation from high school, he enlisted and served with honor in the U.S. Air Force. He went on to attend San Diego State College, earned a degree as an engineering geologist and worked in that field for more than 30 years for the state of California.

Oscar was happiest when he was in the great outdoors. He loved to hunt and fish, and was an accomplished archer and bow hunter. For decades, he volunteered for the Humboldt Archers, the Redwood Gun Club, the California Waterfowl Association and Ducks Unlimited, among others. He helped foster new generations of outdoors enthusiasts by teaching archery and hunter safety. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Mad River Post 2542 and participated in many VFW honor guard ceremonies.

Oscar was preceded in death by his beloved wife Marianne and his brother Buell “Bud” Huber. He is survived by his daughter Holly and her husband Harvey II, his son Todd, his wife Kelly and Oscar’s dear granddaughter Delaney, his sister Melba McNitt and her husband John, his brother Noel Huber and his wife Mary Kay, his sister-in-law Janet Huber, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on July 16, 2021, at Ocean View Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Humboldt, Humboldt Archers or the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
