David J. Hubeny, 78, of the Plantsville section of Southington, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on Monday, October 23, 2023. He was the loving husband of Judith (Dobson) Hubeny for 48 years.
David was born in Plantsville, CT on June 12, 1945, one of seven children, to the late Anthony and Sophie (Gladke) Hubeny.
David was blessed to find such purpose, passion and enjoyment with his work. He worked alongside his family and close friends on Hubeny’s Farm and co-owned Southington Meat Packing for decades.
He possessed elite butchering skills and an impressive ability to mentor others, so when the family business closed in the early 2000’s, he continued to follow his passion helping grow the businesses of Four Mile River Farm in Old Lyme and Southington Meat Shop. He hung up his set of knives this past August, but his legacy will continue to burn through those he helped and inspired.
He enjoyed keeping those he worked with on task, good conversations at the end of a hard day's work, precious time with his family, the beaches of Maine and his cowboy movies.
He will be remembered for always being present in the moment, his inspirational work ethic, selflessness, dedication to family and friends and knocking your socks off with the finest cuts of meats and pristine crops.
In addition to his wife Judy, David is survived by 2 children, Patrick Hubeny and his wife Shannon, Pamela Hubeny, both of Plantsville, and 2 cherished grandsons, Trent and Travis. He also leaves behind three sisters, Jennie Rinato, Sophie Barry and her husband Richard Paul and Patricia Tomczak, two sisters-in-law, Ida Hubeny and Nancy Hubeny, all of Southington, David Czarneski of Bristol and several nieces and nephews. David was predeceased by two brothers, Anthony "Sonny" Hubeny Jr. and Robert “Bobby” Hubeny, one sister, Elizabeth “Betty” Lagana and his brothers-in-law, Salvatore Lagana, John Rinato and Walter Tomczak and Tracy Czarneski.
