Dallan C. Huebert
Dec 24, 1940 – Oct 3, 2017
Son of Henry P. and Gertrude C. (Leinen) Huebert, he was born near Panama, Iowa and grew up on the family farm, where he worked as a farm hand. He also worked as an auctioneer and a radio, TV and Maytag repairman. With the rank of Sergeant, he served in the Air Force from 1962 to 1966, stationed in Texas, Goose Bay Labrador, Colorado, and Michigan. He was a life member of VFW Post 1581. He graduated from AIC Business School and then taught Computer Programming at Nettleton Business College. The last 34 years of his career were spent at Mutual Protective Insurance Company/Medico Life where he was an IBM Systems Programmer, and from which he retired as an Assistant Vice President. For the next four years he volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Sarpy County.
He was a quiet person, always thinking about how to make things work, and was willing to help anyone who needed it. At work, home, and in the neighborhood, he became the “go-to-man.” He enjoyed woodworking, making and designing lots of crafts and doing craft shows. Some of his projects have made it to many countries around the world. His pride and joy was the rocking airplane he made for his grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his infant twin brother, Damon (1940); his little sister, Verda Mae (1948), and his sister, Karen Risk (2016). He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon (Riesberg) Huebert; son, Col. Kevin Huebert (Sara); daughters, Kayleen Collins (Travis) and Katie Anderson (Mike); grandchildren: Angela, Madeline, and Benjamin Huebert; brothers, Gerald (Betty) and Neil (Cherylene); brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Bob Risk, Dale Riesberg (Karen), Kathy Golwitzer (Jim), Kent Riesberg (Karen), Richard Riesberg (Eunice), and Roger Riesberg (Paula); many nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
