TITUSVILLE Louis Hujber, 89, passed away in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus on January 8, 2022 in Titusville, NJ. Louis passed away before the death of his parents and siblings and is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Lucille Hujber (Gwiazdowski) of Titusville; her children Kevin Hujber of Jobstown, Audrey and Pepper Vareha of Ewing, Sharon and Ray Wilson of Ewing, Steven Hujber and Kate of Titusville, Maryann Hujber of Manville, Christine Hujber and Dave of Titusville and Walt Hujber and Nikki of Titusville; grandchildren Matt, Sarah, Samantha, Donald, Eva, Lindsay, Melanie, Kelly, Paul and Louis; and her boyfriend, Rusty. After high school, Louis served two years in the military where he had the opportunity to be based in Fairbanks, Alaska and was fortunate enough to serve his time with his twin brother, Donald. There, they learned the trade of welding and sheet metal repairing tanks that served Louis for life. After the Army, he and his brother opened the Titusville Drive-In landmark, Hubers, which Don continued until his death. After his marriage, Louis spent several years working for Marshall Maintenance in Trenton before starting his own metal fabrication and fabrication shop which he operated until his retirement. Louis had a long-standing love of classic cars, starting at age 16 when he and his brother bought a 1919 Ford Model T touring car still owned by the family. A staple of the July 4th parade in Titusville, all of her children learned to drive this car. In addition to the Model T, Louis restored several other cars during his life and was actively working on a restoration project until his brief illness and death. The highlight of each year was our pilgrimages to the Hershey Fall Car Show and Swap Meet in Hershey PA – selling and browsing the flea market for the elusive car part has become a family tradition. Another of Louis’ hobbies was collecting and restoring old tractors, engines, and farm implements. Louis became a member of the Delaware Valley Old Time Power and Equipment Club shortly after his formation and was an active member attending the annual Washington Crossing State Park show each year. Through his business, collecting vintage cars and tractors, Louis had a wonderful network of friends who shared these same hobbies. He looked forward to reconnecting each year to various shows and meetups. Years later, Louis enjoyed gardening with his wife, Lucille, growing every vegetable imaginable. He also maintained a small orchard of peach trees. One of her greatest pleasures was inviting her grandchildren to pick fruits and vegetables. Through it all, Rusty was by his side. Visitations will be Friday from 10:30 am to 11:30 am, followed by a Christian funeral mass at 11:30 am at St. George’s Church in Titusville, NJ. Interment will be at 1:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Hamilton, NJ. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Louis’ name to Catholic Charities Diocese of Trenton. https://www.catholiccharitiestrenton.org/donate/ Blackwell Memorial Home 21 N.
