He was born on the family farm in Cloverdale, north of Winchester on July 7, 1920 to the late Thomas Alexander Docksteader and Mable Lough.

He was the uncle of Janice Docksteader Richards (David) of Oakville, and Dr. Brian Docksteader (Pamela) of Calgary, and great-uncle of Ryan, Mark, and Ashley Docksteader all of Calgary. He will be missed by his many cousins and extended family to whom he was very close.
A farmer all of his life, Hubert loved his family and friends, and was a very private man who always made everyone feel comfortable. He was very grateful and appreciative of the support of his family, cousins, friends, and the management and staff of the Hartford Retirement Centre.
The funeral service was held at the Winchester Funeral Home on Sat., Sept. 27 with Rev. Angus MacDonald officiating, Pastor Bruce North assisted, David Richards gave the eulogy, and Dawn Campbell played the organ. The pallbearers were Keith Last, Arden Black, Mervyn Patterson, Ryan Docksteader, Mark Docksteader, and Ashley Docksteader. Interment at Maple Ridge Cemetery followed the service, and a reception was held at Winchelsea Farms, Hubert’s old farm.
The family would like to thank everyone who was part of the service, those who made donations in support of various charities, those who attended, as well as the management and staff of the Winchester Funeral Home, Winchelsea Farms, and the Hartford Retirement Centre.
