LARRY E. HUBER Larry E. Huber, of Stover, MO, passed away peacefully on February 17, 2018 in Columbia Mo at the age of 71. He was born to John Eldon Huber and Maxine Mae Whitaker, whom later remarried to Ronald Hankins. He attended Grandview High School and then went to Findley Engineering College where he graduated with honors. With the heart of an explorer, he enjoyed visiting many places. His career as a cooling tower engineer took him to many different countries. He even spent a year in Indonesia where he and his beloved pet, Heidi had many adventures. Larry was active in his community serving on the Belton Planning Commission and a longtime member of the Jaycees holding several offices. Later he became a member of the Elks Lodge where he spent his time with friends and bartending. Larry loved his retirement life at the Lake of the Ozarks, living in the home he helped build with his Father. He was always ready to tell a joke and was a keeper of random treasures. He found value in what some would call trash. Larry was never short of projects and loved talking about his current project at length. He was also an advocate of Hawaiian shirts and the Beach Boys. He perfected his biscuits and gravy as well as grilled a steak that couldn’t be challenged. Larry was preceded in death by his brother and his parents and is survived by his sister, a nephew, his children Brett Huber (Ashley), Amber Wheat (Michael), Shanna Watt (John) and eight grandchildren. There will be a Celebration of Life gathering at the Elks Lodge located at 174 Elks Lane, Laurie, MO 65037 on Saturday, March 3rd from 3-5 pm. In lieu of flowers you may donate to the Ozarks Kat and K9 Shelter, ozarkskatandk9.com/donate.

Larry was one of my first and best friends when I moved to Belton. We shared many, many experiences as members of the Belton Jaycee organization. We were canoe partners on float trips to the Current River, I was Santa and he was the elf for the Jaycee Santa Project, we worked the fireworks and Christmas tree sales together, we cleaned 'mountain oysters' together, we put up flags and Christmas lights on Main Street. I helped look after his dog Heidi and visited at his home on the Lake of the Ozarks. He taught me to drink shots of vodka with minnows swimming in them and we shared many laughs and jokes. I will always remember Larry for his smile and laugh. He was active in many civic organizations and had an important influence on our Belton community. I hope he finds peace on the other side of the veil.

Shanna, I think you know Larry and I were pretty good friends. We shared some good discussions and a few jokes at the Elks Lodge. I'm glad I was able to help him a little bit when he needed rides. I joked with him, telling him to stop falling, hurting himself, and getting sick so much. I'm sorry for your loss, and will miss him.
