Dr. Donald Joseph Huber, age 90, passed away peacefully on January 2, 2021. He was born March 1, 1930 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Paul and Cecilia Huber. He married his lifetime love, Karolyn Beran, at St. Teresa’s church on September 7, 1957.
Don Huber, a true native son of Pittsburgh, studied to be a physician first at Duquesne University followed by medical school at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Huber chose the path of Family Practitioner, eventually becoming a Diplomat of the American Board of Family Practice, a discipline in which he felt he could best serve the people under his care. His medical career was truly one of service to the community. As a young practicing physician Dr. Huber would make house calls for his most ill patients and over time set up a home office where he would treat local patients who had urgent needs off hours. Dr. Huber served at the Vincentian Nursing Home as an in-housephysician, helping many elderly residents find comfort and peace in their final days. Upon his official retirement from full time medicine Dr. Huber volunteered by serving the homeless of Pittsburgh into his 80’s, many times seeking out those in need where they could be found under bridges and on the streets and ministering to them.
Don was an avid golfer and bridge player, enjoyed attending the theater and concerts, and engaged in hunting and fishing in his younger years as well. Don was a long-time member at Highland Country Club and enjoyed playing golf at many different and varied courses, both nationally and internationally. He was a Steeler fan, enjoying both watching and attending games during his life. Accompanied by his wife Karolyn, Don enjoyed traveling during his retirement years and visited numerous countries and sites of interest that spanned the globe. Having seen much of the world, Don commented that Pittsburgh was always his true home and felt there was no better place for him and his family to live.
Don was married to the love of his life, Karolyn Beran Huber, for 63 blessed years, a true testament to their love for each other that never dimmed and a model for what a true and selfless marriage, based on mutual love and respect, can be in today’s world. Don had a strong Catholic faith that guided him through his life as a man, husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was affectionately known to his grandchildren as “Doc”. Don took great pride in his children and grandchildren and invested his time and efforts to be supportive of their lives and dreams.
Don had a large extended family that he nurtured during his life. He is survived by his three sons Donald and his wife Mary Beth Huber, Mark and his wife Lisa Huber, and Matthew and his wife Joan Huber, as well as his two daughters Victoria Tecce and her husband Dr. Marc Tecce, and Jennie Kirschler and her husband Rob Cook. Don was preceded in death by his granddaughter Emma Huber. Don was also preceded in death by his loving wife Karolyn by less than a week, a fitting end to two lives dedicated so much to each other. Don and Karolyn will be laid to rest together for eternity. Don is survived by a total of 17 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. All of these he loved and touched deeply. Don Huber, a servant to the Pittsburgh community, will be missed by so many.

Mass of Christian Burial in St. John Neumann Church Friday 10:00 a.m. Everyone please meet at Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Light Of Life Rescue Mission in Pittsburgh.

    It was an honor for me to get to know Mr. and Mrs. Huber at Cumberland Woods Village. I greatly enjoyed conversing and hearing Mr. Huber’s stories. His dedication to Mrs. Huber was so admirable, I will miss them both. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Dear Hubers,
    Your parents were great blessings in the lives of the Pavlic family. My parents had very deep love and respect for both of them, and some of my father’s dearest memories of high school and medical school included your good father. Your sweet mother was a cherished friend to my mother, and I always enjoyed seeing pictures of the two of them on their cross-country skiing adventures. Our parents’ friendship spanning more than half a century was remarkable and beautiful. Throughout my father’s terminal illness, your father was a constant, loving support to him, my mother, and all of the Pavlic kids. After Dad died, your dad gave that same loving, protective support to my mother and us despite his many commitments at home. Your parents were saintly and have earned their beautiful place together in heaven. But I also recognize your deep grief at having lost them both, especially so quickly. My prayers are with you all in this very difficult time.

    Dr. Huber took care of my mother at Vincentian Home from 1996 until her death in 1997. He was a wonderful physician, and I will always be grateful for his kindness and great compassion, especially during the last days of her life when he stated that he wasn’t going to subject her to even one more blood draw. I’m sure he was met at the gates of Heaven with the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” He is now safely Home in the arms of God. May he Rest In Peace and rise in glory.

  • Maria Pavlic Barrett

    Your parents were so wonderful and a shining example of an ideal Christian marriage based on love and commitment. I had the pleasure of knowing them most of my life through the close friendship they had with my parents, and always enjoyed seeing them occasionally when I was back in Pittsburgh. I hope and pray you can find comfort together during the difficult days ahead. They will be missed greatly but their love will live on through all of you.

  • Carole Lang

    Dear family, I worked at NHPH for 22 years and I have to say he was such a fabulous and caring physician. He also was my family doctor. He had so much respect for all of us. Always knew when he would do rounds on 5 west because he had such a beautiful voice. I cannot say enough about him. So glad I was there when he was practicing. My sympathies to all of the family for your losses.
