Joseph Michael Huber, son of Joseph and Florence (Wagner) Huber was born July 9, 1962 at Aberdeen, SD. He grew up on a farm around Hosmer, SD. His family moved to Aberdeen when he was in the seventh grade. He graduated from Central High School with the class of 1981. Joe enlisted into the United States Navy in August 1981 and served through May 1988. Following his honorable discharge, he returned to Aberdeen where he did carpentry work, helping build several houses for many years.
Joe was united in marriage to Joanne (Boldt) Martin on April 29, 2000 in Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Aberdeen. They made their home in Aberdeen and Joanne’s children became a very important part of Joe’s life. He liked to spend time with them camping, going to the lake, and helping building things.
Joe was always ready to help others. He enjoyed sharing his carpentry talents with his family. Over the years, he spent time working on pit crews for modified race cars, watching football, bowling, playing pool, darts, and cards with his friends and family. He was an avid gardener and sketched in his free time.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Leo, and David.
