Mark De St. Hubert

February 20, 1952 - March 12, 2021

Mark E. De St. Hubert, age 69, of Webster, died unexpectedly of natural causes at his home on Friday, March 12, 2021.  Mark was born on February 20, 1952 in Minneapolis to David and Verda (Hanson) De St. Hubert.  He grew up in Minneapolis, attending Minneapolis Public Schools and graduated from Minneapolis Vocational Technical School.  He married Marian K. Brichacek on June 16, 1972 in Bloomington.  Mark was a contractor for his own black-topping service.  Mark had an approachable personality and a giving heart.   His children and grandchildren were central and foremost in his life and everything he enjoyed revolved around them.    He was noted for handing out free kettle corn at the Farmer’s Markets that he and his wife worked at and would take kettle corn to all his neighbors.  He loved animals of all kinds, especially his current furry pal, Thor.  He even purchased a pregnant Texas long-horn, who hid in the woods when her calf was born, necessitating the help of professional cowboys to come and find her and bring her home!  His greatest adventures came as a result of his love of motorcycles; he made two memorable trips to Sturgis and had hoped to get in one more.  He enjoyed tinkering and had a vast knowledge and interest in motors of all kinds.  His kind, generous heart and his ready smile will be greatly missed by his loving family and friends.

 

Mark is survived by his loving wife, Marian of Webster; children, Nikki (Eric) Hall of Chaska, Kerri Jordan of New Prague, Jesse De St. Hubert of New Prague, Jacob De St Hubert of New Prague; grandchildren, Noah, Isabelle, Ethan, Emily, & Easton;  sisters, Diane Person of Ft. Meyers, FL & Beth (Kevin) Morgan of Albert Lea; sister-in-law, Mary Jo De St. Hubert of Bloomington.  He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, David De St. Hubert.

 

Private family services will be held Friday, March 26, 2021 at Bruzek Funeral Home.

Marian, Nikki, Kerri, Jesse, and Jacob My deepest condolences on Marks passing and your loss! I remember the time I was stuck at the airport with Steve due to a snow storm and I called you guys to check on the boys because I couldn’t reach them. You sent Mark over to check on them and when he didn’t come back an hour later you went to check – he was in the barn watching the boys swing from the hayloft and encouraging them. If I am not mistaken they all got yelled including Mark. Thank you both for being… Read more »

I am so sorry to hear this. I, too, remember him coming out to our farm and roaming around by the cows and pigs. That didn’t always go over too big with his siblings and parents who had to ride home in the car with him. He was a good guy and a good father . He will be greatly missed I am sure. My sympathy to Diane, Beth and Mary Jo also.

Deepest condolences to Marian and family. Mark was a great guy, always willing to help anyone he could. I remember Marian telling me a story about Mark stopping to help someone whose vehicle broke down on the side of the road on his way to traffic court. He didn’t know it, but that someone was the judge for traffic court that day and she immediate dismissed the ticket because of his kindness in helping a stranger. That was just how Mark was. I’m going to miss our friendly jabs with other at the Prior Lake market. I’m now going to… Read more »

My deepest sympathy! I remember when Mark was about somewhere between 4 & 6 he would love to come to our farm. He would tell us all kinds of stories about wrestling bears, and hopping on trains. My dad had so much fun with him when it came time to milk the cows. Dad sent him down to the last cow in the row which was the bull. But Mark got to the bull and said “now what do I do?” My dad said “start pumping the tail” and Mark started pumping the tail. We love you Mark, may you… Read more »

A great guy who was loving and giving. One who helped people with no need for thanks. Loved his wife, children and grandchildren much. He’ll be missed. Especially no more kettlecorn. ❤
