W. Ross Huber

W. Ross Huber, 78, of Wiscasset, passed away on March 16 after living life to its fullest.

He was born in Thomaston, the son of Elinor (Cain) Huber and Paul Huber. He attended school in Wiscasset and graduated from Wiscasset Academy with the class of 1952, before joining the U.S. Air Force.

Ross was a jack-of-all-trades and a master of many, fixing and building came naturally to him. His work included sales management, auto repair and cross-country truck driver. He also owned and operated three separate small businesses, a custom camper manufacturing plant, a sports car repair shop in sunny Southern California and even a small restaurant where he was a short order cook. He worked very hard at whatever project he put his attention on.

Ross had restless feet and spent many of his early adult years moving about in search of his next adventure. His children inherited his gypsy gene and have all been known to take an occasional unexpected road trip. Home for Ross included Maine, Illinois, Indiana, Idaho, California, Virginia and Massachusetts.

He was known for throwing great parties, actual occasions were optional. He raced cars in the California road rally circuit. Ross chased women and caught three. He was known to have a quick wit and enjoyed the verbal banter. Evidently he liked his eyebrows very bushy. He was an animal lover, with a particular affection for dogs and cats. He had a soft spot for strays, animal and human alike. He once brought home a rescued squirrel to the dismay of his wife, but to the delight of his children.

He loved blacksmithing, tools, books and boats and once owned a 70-foot tugboat just for the fun of it.

Except for the past few years of his life, Ross lived his life to the fullest, always pursuing what he wanted, doing as he chose most of the time while in search of his dreams. As he had wished, his ashes will be spread along the Sheepscot River that he loved so much.

Ross was predeceased by his mother, Elinor; father, Paul; and brother, Gordon Huber, all of Wiscasset.

Surviving are his sister, Francis Harris of Raleigh, N.C.; brother, Paul Huber of Jefferson; daughter, Kim Gillespie and husband Lee; sons, Chip Huber, and Scott Huber and wife Tammy; and seven grandchildren.
