Hubert “Hubie” G. Heins
Hubert “Hubie” G. Heins, 84, of Belmont, Wisconsin, died on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at Agrace Hospice, Fitchburg, after a courageous battle with cancer. Hubert was born on October 4, 1937 in Belmont Township, son of August “Gus” and Bertha (Kinch) Heins. He was united in marriage to Cleo Gregory in Cuba City, Wisconsin, on June 2, 1962. She preceded him in death on June 29, 1993. Hubie was later united in marriage to Susanne Nodorft on January 28, 1995 at Peace Lutheran Church, Belmont. Hubert was a lifetime member of Peace Lutheran Church in Belmont. He farmed in Belmont his entire life and was proud to own a Century Family Farm. After retiring, he started working for his neighbor, Homer Bockhop, and enjoyed helping him for nearly 25 years.
Hubie enjoyed watching horse pulls and Brewers baseball, traveling with Susanne for many years to watch the Brewers play spring training in Arizona. He and Sue followed the Hometown Talent Baseball League. He enjoyed playing cards, especially Euchre and Smear with his many friends, both in the mornings at the Heins Pool Hall and in the evenings with his family. He enjoyed a beer or two after a long day’s work, especially if it was accompanied by a lively card game.
