Obituary

Herbert C. Grubber (March 3, 1939 - May 9, 2019)
Husband of Sharon Gallagher for 52 years. Father of Chris (Tara), Angela, Cindy (Pete), and John (Martha). Beloved Poppi to Brianna, Kaija, Jessica, Derek, and Chloe. Dad had a few core beliefs that shaped him: Family came first, above everything else; if a job was worth doing, it was worth doing right; and there could never be too much pepper.

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to our:
- Fiercely independent man of many opinions and colourful words, most being unprintable.
- World traveler, historian, and adventurous gourmet, willing to eat just about anything, no matter its age.
- Carpenter, plumber, electrician, mover, or whatever else the job required, he was always willing to help.
- Changer of diapers, and cuddler of sleepy babies in his recliner.
- Reader and singer of limericks and lullabies.
- Noted secret softie towards animals, and veterinarian to family pets.
- Vintage tool collector, magical mechanic, and building material enthusiast.
- Flower, tree, fruit, and vegetable gardening authority.
- Nature lover, recycler, and enthusiastic composter.
- Year-round early riser who would walk the Bell Park Boardwalk at sunrise daily.

Every year, the arrival of spring gave him a burst of energy after the winter. Dad’s gardens brought him great joy, and he happily spent the summer days in them, from sunrise to sunset, clad in his green coveralls and hat, planting, trimming, weeding, pruning, and watering. The only thing he loved more was his family. He will be greatly missed, and never forgotten.

Enjoy some aged cheese or pickled beets, plant something, or have a lively debate in his memory. Donations to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto or the Northern Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.

I had many good discussions each morning on my way to HSN with this fine man. He would always share the most practical solution to the most complex life issues. He would end our conversation with a story from years gone bye and warning of what may happen if things don't improve. He was a most gifted story teller. Perfect posture! RIP Herb! Terry Coffey

Mrs. Grubber...Ed and I are so sorry to hear the news about our dear sweet Herb. We looked forward to seeing him every Sunday at church. He always was there to offer a huge hug greeting us with his infectious smile and charismatic personality. The twinkle in his eye and his entertaining humour will be so missed. I once told him that he reminded me of a dapper Rhett Butler. He laughed and from then on referred to me as Scarlet. Sunday mass will just not be the same! Ed and I are away and cannot attend Herb’s funeral but please know that we are thinking of you and your family and praying for love and light and healing!! Jane and Ed Reilly

Dear Sharon & family - I was saddened to hear of the passing of Herb. I have fond memories of meeting you and Herb on our Dominican trip in 2015. Such a great guy. My sincere condolences to you and your family.
