  1. Monsignor Daniel Huber remains in the hearts of our family. While we resided in Durango, CO, we became close friends with this kind and gentle man when he was our pastor at St. Columba Catholic Church. He was so approachable and welcoming, and a helpful minister to his flock wherever he served! We communicated with Father Dan after leaving Durango in the mid-eighties. Phone calls were a blessing to our family members and to John and me. He co-presided at my husband John’s Memorial Mass along with Father Jim Koenigsfeld who was the pastor at Saint Columba Church in 2007. Monsignor Dan Baptized one of our grandsons named Daniel Schrader, here in our cabin yard soon after our Daniel was born. He allowed us to use holy water from the parishes of each of our now grown family members to mix with that which he brought with him. Rest in peace, dear, and gentle man, in the arms of Jesus. Our condolences and compassion to his family and friends who knew him in far greater ways. What joy he must have in a heavenly reward richly deserved. Peace and Love from our memories to You.

  2. Father Dan was the Vocations Director for the Diocese of Pueblo when I attended Seminary. He was always very supportive of those of us who were studying some 700 miles away from home. He made several trips to see us Seminarians and to remind us that we were not forgotten here at home in Pueblo. He helped to keep us organized and informed while we were away. He always welcomed us home with a nice cooked meal at his house when we were on a break. He planned informative and educational retreats for us also. He was very kind and supportive to me when I needed some extra attention my first year. I am very thankful for his care, compassion and kindness during my Seminary years. Rejoice In Paradise, Fr. Dan!

  3. Fr. Dan was a young priest when my grandmother passed away unexpectedly. She left behind three underaged children among nine children altogether. The family was devastated, including my mom who was eight months pregnant. Fr. Dan went to the family to console them. My family has always to this day talked about how kind and loving he was to them. He was always in their thoughts and prayers.
