Susan Lucci’s husband, TV producer Helmut Huber, passed away Monday at age 84, a rep for the “All My Children” star confirms. “The death of Helmut is a terrible loss for everybody who knew and loved him.” “He was an exceptional husband, father, grandfather, and friend,” Lucci’s representative says. “The family respectfully requests privacy during this extremely trying time.”
Meanwhile, a family representative told People, who broke the story first, that “he was a family man, a loyal friend, and loved them passionately.” He lived his life to the fullest, with a roaring sense of humour, a larger-than-life personality, and a practical problem-solver. Mr Huber, who used to race motorbikes in Austria, was an excellent skier and an active golfer who belonged to the Garden City Golf Club and the Westhampton Country Club.”
He died “peacefully” on Long Island, N.Y.
