Leo “Bo” Hubert, 82, passed away Tuesday, July 26, 2022, in his home with his family in Belleville, Kansas. He was born on August 31, 1939, in Concordia, Kansas, to Leo & Virginia (Bessette) Hubert.
Bo graduated from Notre Dame High School, Concordia, Kansas, in 1957. He married Susan Peterson on October 3, 1964, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Clyde, Kansas. Bo began work after high school with his father at Hubert Trucking, Concordia, Kansas, until drafted into the army. When he was honorably discharged, he went to work for Cloud Ceramics. From there, he worked at the Boogaarts Warehouse for 30 years until it closed, and then drove a semi-truck delivering groceries for an additional 7 years. Bo retired as a bus driver for USD 333 after 14 years of service.
Bo was a member of the St. Edward’s Catholic Church, Belleville, Kansas, and enjoyed altar serving at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Concordia, Kansas, for almost 75 years. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was known for trapping and skinning in his younger years. He never truly had a hobby, but he spent his time working either laying bricks with his brother-in-law, shingling roofs, cleaning and laying carpet, making improvements to St. Concordia Cemetery, and working in any way to help his family and friends. His greatest memories came from playing cards and snooker, watching his kids and grandkids play sports, sing, act, dance, and shine, and spending time with his loved ones.
Bo is survived by his wife, Susan, Belleville, Kansas; children, Mark (Cathy) Hubert, Ballwin, MO; Luke (Michelle) Hubert, Belleville, KS; Anne (Jared) Collette, Belleville, KS; six grandchildren, Blaine Hubert, Columbia, MO; Clayton Hubert, Andrew & Emma Hubert, and Matthew & Leo Collette, Belleville, KS; and many other family and friends.
