He was pre-deceased by his parents John and Margaret Hubka, brothers-in-law Lloyd Greene and Steve Ganger as well as nephew Robin Ganger. Dave was an avid lover of agriculture and worked in this industry for his entire life – including a career in fertilizer for nearly 30 years. Always a community and civic minded individual; he dedicated 23 years as a Town Councillor for the Town of Claresholm. Over the years he enjoyed playing slow pitch, curling, camping, fishing and spending time with friends and family. Dave will be well remembered for his friendly smiles and genuine interest of people in his community. Of all his achievements; his proudest was by far his family and he and Connie were known to travel for miles and miles just to catch a ballgame or dance recital for their kids or grandkids.
