He was born on March 2, 1925, in the Town of Weyauwega, the son of the late Ewald and Nellie (Lankford) Quade. Hubert was a proud Marine who was stationed at CINCPAC, (Commander in Chief Pacific Command) (Admiral Chester William Nimitz Headquarters), in Hawaii during WWII, serving as a guard for Admiral Nimitz and Admiral William “Bull” Halsey. Hubert was a retired accordion player and instructor who gave lessons to many local people in the area. He played for many wedding, birthdays, anniversaries, bars, and nursing homes towards the end of his accordion playing years. For many years he raised and sold Christmas trees and ran the Colonial Hotel in Waupaca; along with many other rental properties around the Waupaca area. Hubert enjoyed putting a smile on peoples’ faces with his great sense of humor and jokes every day. Hubert enjoyed looking for Indian artifacts (and showing off his very large collection that he had found throughout his years), the Green Bay Packers, riding his Harley, fishing, hunting, spear fishing, smoking fish, gardening, swimming, weight lifting, and working on his Christmas tree farms. He will be sadly missed by his special friend, who was a great blessing for him for many years, Elsie Anderson.
