Heinrich Huber
(1927 – 2004)

by Herwig Wandschneider

   Heinrich Huber succumbed to a heart attack at his Winter Home in Naples, Fla on Saturday, February 21, 2004 at the age of 77, eight months after losing his wife Kaethe, who passed away in June 2003.

Heinrich HuberHeinrich was a co-founder of Pillers Sausages, together with his two brothers Wilhelm and Edward. The three brothers made Pillers a success story by growing the company into a North America-wide producer of European style meats from its early beginnings in the late 1950’s. In spite of the success, Heinrich remained an accessible, humble, and family-oriented person with never a bad word for anyone.

"Although essentially retired, Heinrich would go to the office on a regular basis, whenever he was at home" said Willi Huber, his brother. "He had the office right across the hall from me. We will all miss him terribly".

Heinrich was a member of several K-W Clubs and Associations, including the German-Canadian Business and Professional Association.

Funeral services were held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church with Rev. Frank Hagarty officiating. Interment was at St. Peter’s Lutheran Cemetery.
