Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
I knew Hubert from when he worked at Bnay Abraham. We were friends for many years and spent a lot of time together. I had moved to BC for 10 years and only had the occasional phone call with him as he didn't know computers. Moved back to Wpg, 4 yrs ago and tried to get together with him but guess his health wasn't good. Didn't know he passed until I googled him as I've done in the last while. Sorry to hear of his passing, he was a good hearted person and will be missed. Condolences to his family, to Odelia and Hubert, Jr., he talked about you both often. He was a good friend and I think of him often with good thoughts. - Posted by: Sharon Shiffman (friend) on: Feb 02, 2022
A man I saw yesterday often, but didn’t really know his story. I can’t wait to hear all the stories from Hubert jr. and Odelia. Mr. White, you raised beautiful kids, and I know you know that. I’ll see ya on the other side. Love Jeffrey De Jesus - Posted by: Jeffrey De Jesus (Friend of his children) on: Oct 28, 2021
Hubert and I worked together at Melrose Foods for 2 years and it was always a pleasure to work along side of him. His wonderful sense of humour and his easy going attitude made Melrose a very happy place to be. His knowledge of all the coffee equipment made him an asset to me as the Northern Manitoba (Dauphin to Churchill) representative and he helped me on many, many occasions. My sincere condolences to Odelia and Hubert, Jr. Hubert was a wonderful man, loving Father and will be missed by all who knew him. - Posted by: Doug Styles (Good friend) on: Oct 26, 2021
