Hubert J. Jarosz Sr. "Scooby" passed away on September 22, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his first love and mother of his children Rita (nee Herron). Devoted father of Carolyn Jarosz, Hubert J. Jarosz Jr., Michael Jarosz (Chari), Rita Jarosz, and Rick Essig. Loving Pop-Pop to Michael (Claire), Kearsten (Dante), Brittany, Jade, Michael, Kayla, Shannon, Anya, Alexis, Savannah, Sadie, Nunu, Ryan and great grandfather of Juju, Jared, Navy, Jru, Ava, Jonah, Jacob, and one on the way. Dear brother of Erwin (late Diane), and the late John and Gelhardt (late Carol). Sadly missed by his nieces and nephews and his best friend and brother in law George Herron.
Hubert was born in Germany to the late John and Josephine (nee Hack) Jarosz. His family emigrated to the United States soon after and settled in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. He was raised there with his parents and brothers and remained there after getting married to raise his own children, just one house down from his childhood home. Hubert was a hard worker and worked as a plumber, eventually opening his own company Hubert's Plumbing and Heating. In his downtime, he enjoyed taking his kids Baja-ing on his collection of dirt bikes, quads and his monster truck, and the muddier they got, the better. A true "guy's guy" Hubert loved all types of boats, trucks, and sports cars.
Hubert will be most remembered for his loyalty to his family, especially his kids and for being a friend to everyone. He was quite the jokester and had a fantastic sense of humor. He will be remembered for his brilliant smile and for his love of Snapple iced tea. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
