Keigh Holian Hubel Obituary

#19 - 8 letters Across - All (people)

On September 8, 2023, Keigh Hubel joined his wife Arlene (Ross) Hubel, Kate, Annabel, and the rest of his family in Heaven for happy hour.

#32 - 8 letters across - Merits

His legacy will be passed on through his three children (Tracy (Hubel) Larson, Allison Hubel, Peter Hubel), seven grandchildren (Rachel, Renee, Alex, Samantha, Lindsey, Carter, and Noah), two great-grandchildren (Emma and Carson), hundreds of teachers, thousands of students, and countless friends. Even if he is not physically with us, his presence will still be felt for decades and generations to come.

 #55 - 7 letters across - Poise and self-respect

It is hard to articulate how much Keigh cared for those around him, our country, and future generations. He was always checking in with people and making sure they were happy. His military service, teaching, and Boy Scout volunteer work, for which was honored with a Silver Beaver award, only scratch the surface of Keigh’s mission to leave the world a better place and he did.

#57 - 9 letters down- Sound moral character

Another admirable part of Keigh was his constant pursuit of knowledge and self-reflection. Keigh was a voracious reader and the teacher in him compelled him to share that knowledge and help others grow.   He was also mindful of his impact on others and said that “love is my moral compass.”

#61 - 3 Letter down - “You were saying…”

The man was indestructible and resilient. Poverty, starvation, a falling barn, a collapsing garage, ladders, chainsaws, and even an aortic aneurysm could not take him down. There wasn’t a challenge he hadn’t bounced back from, so it is hard to truly accept that his time has come. Yet he was ready. Even before this latest bout of health challenges, he was known to say ,“I have lived a good life” and he meant it.

#64 - seven letters down - Reason for something is done

And while he is gone, we know he will be supervising us all from above. Whenever one of us cooks a pork chop, installs a dock, or mows the lawn, we know he will be there.

#23 - five letters across  - A man that put the passion in compassion.

If you want to celebrate his life, join his family at Hoplin-Hitchcock Funeral Home, 122 1st St, Glenwood MN on Friday, September 29, 2023.  Visitation will be from 1-2 pm and the service is 2-3 pm. Let’s raise a Sierra Nevada Torpedo In memory of Keigh and remember:  No one is better than I am or worse, either.

We love you, Keigh.
