Joe HujoehuberIIIber, III, the son of Bonnie and the late Joe Huber, Jr., died following an accident at his home in Starlight, Indiana on July 27 around 11:00am when the riding lawn mower he was using overturned into a pond. He was 60.

A family member told WHAS11 News that a neighbor called police after the accident. They also reported that the mower was a zero turn model.

The Huber family has supported the WHAS Crusade for Children for decades hosting events throughout the year that raise thousands of dollars. Since 1989 those donations total more than $130,000. As an example of their commitment, the Joe Huber Family Farm and Restaurant hosted a craft show and balloon glow Saturday, July 25 to benefit the Crusade for Children.

Each year during the WHAS Crusade for Children weekend, the arrival of Huber family members is much anticipated because they bring with them fresh-picked strawberries for all to sample in the crowded WHAS11 studio. It’s one of the Crusade’s annual special moments.

The flag at Joe Huber’s Family Restaurant was lowered to half-staff on Monday.

Joe Hubers Family Farm & Restaurant will be closed for the funeral on Friday, July 31.
