Hubert Hilton Herboldsheimer, 96, of Peetz, CO died Monday, September 22 after enjoying a long, happy, blessed life. Hubert, the eldest child of Charles Philip Herboldsheimer and Anna Margaret (Larson) Herboldsheimer was born on March 10, 1912 near Sidney Nebraska. He grew up in Potter Nebraska and farmed with his parents until his marriage to Luella Eveline McKinney on October 1, 1936. Hubert and Luella lived south of Potter until the spring of 1939 when they moved to an unimproved farm which they had purchased fifteen miles northwest of Peetz. They continued to build and improve their farm and lived there until 2006 when Hubert moved to Devonshire Acres in Sterling. Being an advocate of soil conservation, his goal as a farmer was to leave the land in better shape than he found it. In 1983, Hubert and son Craig received the Soil Conservationist Award of the year from the Centennial Soil Conservation District. Hubert served for several years on the Board of Appeals of his Soil Conservation District and also as a member of the Board of Supervisors of the Logan County Weed Control District when it was first formed. Hubert has always been interested in education and was a member of the school board of his neighborhood school district #70 which was consolidated later with the Peetz school district. In the early sixties he served on a committee of Logan County citizens in charge of reorganizing the school districts of Logan County. After a year of meetings and hearings this committee formed the new districts as they exist today. In 1968, he was appointed to fill the vacancy on the Northeastern Junior College Governing Board and was re elected and served in that position for nine years. He was also appointed as a member of the Board of Trustees of the newly formed Northeastern Junior College Foundation where he served three terms. In later years a dorm was named honoring Hubert for his service. Hubert was community minded and served in many ways. He was a member of the Peetz Cooperative Telephone board and served for a number of years as a member of the board of directors of the Peetz Farmers Cooperative elevator. In 2002 Hubert and Luella were honored as Pioneers of Logan County and then also as parade marshals of "For Peetz Sake Days". An important part of his life was being an active member of the Peetz United Methodist church. Hubert loved to fly. He held a private pilot's license for 25 years. Taking passengers on their first ride in his Cessna 170 as well as checking the cows and looking over the farm was a joy for him. He and Luella enjoyed traveling in their RV and over the years had visited every state and nearly every province of Canada. Hubert is survived by his beloved wife, Luella, of nearly 72 years; son Richard (Evelyn Herboldsheimer of Sidney NE; daughter Deanna (David) Ross of Peetz CO; son Craig (Rece Ann) Herboldsheimer and wife of Peetz CO; daughter Candice (Dick) Kahl of Powell WY; 10 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren; siblings: Kinley Herboldsheimer of Acton MA and Vivian Willoughby of Cheyenne, WY. Preceding Hubert in death were one sister, five brothers and one great-grandchild.
