Kenneth Huber died peacefully at home, in his sleep, on Jan. 16, 2021, at the age of 86.
Born in Cincinnati in 1934, Ken eventually made his way to Yellow Springs in the mid-1950s, where he built lifelong friendships and actively engaged in community life for nearly a decade. He then moved to New York City, where he lived a full life in Manhattan for over 30 years before returning to Yellow Springs after retirement to marry his longtime friend Mina, then Wilhelmina Brown. They had 20 good years together in Yellow Springs before Mina’s death in July 2019.
Ken was an enthusiastic supporter of Yellow Springs organizations and was a longtime board member at the Yellow Springs Senior Center. He served and gave generously to a community that he dearly loved. He is survived by his sister, Miriam “Mim” Cook; Mina’s children, Eric Smith and Lisa Gardner (Dan); and many nieces, nephews, in-laws and grandchildren.
A more detailed reflection of Ken’s very full life is forthcoming. A memorial celebration with extended family and friends will be held when people can safely travel and gather again.
