George J. Huebschman III
Greene Co. CYS foster parent for more than 11 years
After a lengthy illness, George J. Huebschman III died Thursday, February 7, 2013, in his home in Waynesburg, with wife Ann and daughter Lisa Hewitt in attendance.
Mr. Huebschman was born August 3, 1936, in Baltimore, Md., a son of the late George Jr. and Henrietta Huebschman.
Surviving are his wife, Ann; sons George IV and wife Fran of Baltimore, Kurt and wife Jennifer and son Lucas of Breinigsville; daughter Lisa Hewitt and husband William and son William R. of Charles Town, W.Va. Hilda Harrington adopted Mr. Huebschman as her father and grandfather for her two children, Dillon and Cody Dulaney of Waynesburg. Also surviving are three brothers and wives, Richard, Vernon and Martin, all of Baltimore; a sister, Kathleen and husband of Leesburg, Va.; two sisters-in-law, Dr. Joyce Latham of Glendale, Wis., and Beverly McCain of Katy, Texas; and brother-in-law Walter Latham of Homosassa, Fla.
Mr. Huebschman and his wife were married May 24, 1962, in Baltimore, and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year.
He was raised and schooled in the Baltimore area. Mr. Huebschman graduated from Mount Washington Military School, Calvert Hall College and attended Baltimore Community College.
Mr. Huebschman was employed and became vice president of F.M. Stevenson Canvas Co. until moving to Wind Ridge in 1979. A change of employment to Weigh-Tronix Computer Scale Co., Fairmont, Minn., as a district sales manager required this move. Shortly after this transition, he became ill. Because he could not work, he became a foster parent for Greene County Children and Youth Services for more than 11 years and was a board member. Mr. Huebschman felt this job was the most rewarding. He loved working with children of all ages. He was a great role model. Mr. Huebschman was also active with the area Boy Scouts and was a hunter safety teacher for the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
He chose to be a body donor and was taken to the University of Pittsburgh. A memorial service is to be scheduled for early April in St. Ann Catholic Church, Waynesburg. Memorial donations can be made in his name to Father Richard Thompson of St. Ann Catholic Church, 232 East High Street, Waynesburg. Mr. Huebschman was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
