    My sympathy to the family of Tighe Huber. He was in my fifth grade class at Lee Elementary in 1963-64. He was an excellent student so it was no surprise to learn that he had become a beloved doctor. Just treasure your memories. Sue Johnson

    We are so devastated by the death of Dr. Huber. He was my(Emmy) doctor for a few years and has been my mom's doctor for over 20 years. He always spoke well to my mom and told her how she was encouraging. He will be missed. Prayers for his family who he spoke lovingly of.

    Dr. Huber was one of the young doctors I was honored to work with 20+ years ago, He was a giant of a person in personality, kindness and stature. He was always one you could approach and talk to. We are going to miss him greatly. His family should know what an impact he had on other peoples lives. I was fortunate in getting to know him and visit with him over the years. We will miss you.

    I had already been doing mammograms yearly, but for 2 years I had been lax. On a visit to Dr Huber he refused to refill some medication for me if I did not go get my yearly mammogram. He even had office make appt for me... because of that appt I found out I had breast cancer. I was only 49 and had no family history, there was no reason to think I would get it . Because he cared enough to force me to get the mammogram I am alive today !! I am so happy I told him that years ago ... thank you again Dr Huber .. RIP

    Dr. Huber was a kind, compassionate man and extraordinary doctor. He was very proud of his family and we loved seeing their pictures in his office. He was our doctor for about 20 years. We will miss him. Praying the Lord comforts family and friends plus helps everyone recall all the good memories of this man.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. We shared an aunt together, Marian Landry, his mother's sister. I only met the family once, about 50 years ago, but Marian talked about them a lot. I pray he rests in peace, and his family has comfort.

    Tighe and I were great friends in the late 70's through the 80's. We sailed, together, went snow skiing together every year, etc. We even went to Aspen on a 2 week vacation together where he and I met Miss World. Tighe got the phone number. I remember his hard work building homes as an owner of K&H Construction. Good Memories, old friend. Condolences to your family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Huber's family. Not only was he my doctor for several years, he was also a dear friend. He and my mother battled the same type of cancer. He gave me so much information on what I should expect during my mom's illness, which may it easier for me as she slowly passed away. Dr. Huber is no longer in pain. My heart breaks for all of his loved ones.
