Mr. Huebsch was my fourth grade teacher In 78-79. He also was the first teacher that- as my young mind recognized, really enjoyed teaching! There was a warmth and compassion in his eyes and his spirit when a student might not understand something explained the first time-He would exercise that wit and humor so even a fourth grader would be able to chuckle, and then be focused:) My heartfelt condolences to his family, and may the peace that surpasses all understanding be with you all.

Mr. Huebsch was my 4th grade teacher at Roosevelt in 1973-4. He played a role in my fondness for my elementary school days. I credit him for my excellent spelling ability in our “Spelling Baseball” games. Mr. Huebsch made learning fun. I remember his fondness for Pelican Lake and fishing. This is sad news and I express my deepest sympathy to his family.

I’m saddened to hear of Mr. Huebsch’s passing. He was such an amazing teacher. I was not in his class at Roosevelt, I had Mrs Hoover and Mr Zigan, but that didn’t matter. He loved all the kids at Roosevelt. I was so happy when years later my son was lucky enough to have him as his teacher. He impacted so many lives! His memory will live forever!

On behalf of all the Toubl family, our deepest sympathy to Cliff's family. As my youngest brother Jerry has stated, Cliff was such a good friend to him and we had wonderful memories seeing Cliff and Carolyn occasionally at Jerry's get-togethers. God bless you and your family and rest in peace, Cliff!

My heartfelt condolences to Carolyn and Shane. Cliff was a great friend and one of a kind. His positive nature could brighten anyone’s day. I enjoyed so many things with Cliff through the years: teaching, cribbage, Brewer and Badger games, Vegas trips, betting on the horses, etc. He was the guy everyone wanted to sit next to because the conversation was both interesting and humorous. He will be greatly missed, but ALL of us are thankful that we have so many wonderful memories. RIP Cliff.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
