In Lieu of Flowers,  donations can be made to The Lustgarten Foundation in Frank Hubert’s name. Information can be found under services.


We are saddened to announce the passing of Frank Hubert at the age of 72 on Oct 25, 2022 . Frank is survived by his wife Diana Hubert (Cestra) of over 30 years, his daughter Guinevere Rybel, his son Adam Hubert, his brother Valerio Hubert and sister-in-law Phyllis Hubert, his beloved granddaughter Peyton, as well and many other brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews.
Frank was the son of the late Adolf and Raisa Hubert, Ukrainian and Belorussian immigrants who escaped the turmoil of Europe in the late 1940’s. Frank was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 5th, 1950 and the family immigrated to Brooklyn, New York in 1959. Frank graduated from Brooklyn Tech High School in 1968 and received his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from City College in New York. Frank was a valued gas operations engineer at National Grid for 40 years. Frank loved spending time with his wife and children, especially his granddaughter Peyton who was the light of his life. His favorite place to vacation was Islamorada in the Florida Keys. Frank’s favorite pastimes included being at the beach with his wife Diana, fishing, and playing the ponies. Frank was a perfectionist in the greatest sense of the word. That was reflected in his ability to solve mechanical problems, and along with his wife Diana, they made a beautiful home for their family. He was also obsessed with the stock
market and yellowtail jalapeno sushi at Benten’s, something he enjoyed with his children Guinn and Adam. Frank’s whole family will truly miss his spirit, his love of life, his generous heart and his smile. Until we meet again.

Memories Timeline


  1. candleMy best of best memories include sitting by the huge pool on Frank & Diana’s expansive deck, grilling succulent steaks over charcoal (only charcoal for Frank), sipping our favorite vodka, telling stories, catching up on life events & families, sharing what was in our hearts, and also getting to know Diana as a true friend! Frank was a good man of solid character, who lived his family & friends with a passion. A very rare individual who made the most out of humble beginnings. And the best soccer player I ever knew! Frank was also the Tech Support Office “champ” at Lilco-Shoreham when we all raced to see who could solve the Word Jumble each day in the newspaper; even though English had not been his first language!! And how he loved to fish! Especially the day we hit the “flounder hole” jackpot fishing with Roy Jongebloed in his Whaler! The good times and stories are so many!! The times spent together were precious but too few.

  2. candleOur prayers, hugs and love to you Diana and your family! Frank was a wonderful man, will be missed and gone way too soon! One day at a time during this very difficult time! Love you friend!

    You were a GREAT friend ! A life taken too soon. Don’t forget that when we meet again, it’s your turn to buy the sushi and drinks,
    We will miss you Buddy!

    I’ll be looking out for your World Cup predictions. Thank you for bringing so much joy and fun to those around you. Rest in peace, dear friend.
    Our sincere condolences to Diana, Adam and Family.

  5. Frank, you will be so so missed. I could not pass you by without smiling and laughing with you. You were one of the most selfless person i knew. Heaven is in stored for a one of a kind. Keep smiling and laughing my friend. Our condolences to Adam, and Diana. You are in our prayers.

  6. Frank, your presence and spirit will be missed by all. Remembering the good ole days at SNPS, how excited you were talking about soccer and Argentina’s chances of winning the World Cup.
    An Irish Blessing
    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sunshine warm your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

  7. Our thoughts and prayers go to you, Diana, and the entire family. Frank will be missed. He was such a wonderful person.
