Harold Hubbard "Hub" Herendeen, 81, longtime resident of Hudson, died March 11. He is survived by his wife, Diane (nee Thurston), and children, Tom (Sharon) Herendeen of Virginia, and Heidi H. Herendeen of Washington. He is also survived by sister-in-law of Glenda Thurston and his siblings, Fred (Beth) Herendeen, Dorothy Bess and Ed (Bobbi) Herendeen. He was the uncle of many nieces and nephews. Hub is also survived by his beloved cats, Skitter, Jaspurr, and Daisy. Hub moved to Hudson in 1970 to work as regional and world accounts manager at Terex Corporation, focusing on the new line of heavy earth-moving hauler trucks. He traveled extensively for the company until his retirement in the early 90s. Hub did not slow down during retirement. Instead, he served as a member of the boards for the Hudson Heritage Association and Case Barlow Farm. Since 1995, Hub has spent thousands of hours overseeing the preservation of the house, supervising new heating, wiring, plumbing, maintenance projects and the restoration of the barn and out buildings. He shared his knowledge of farming and farm implements during weekly sessions with Montessori students, and guided Boy Scouts through special projects to earn their Eagle Scout level. Always interested in getting others involved and enthused, Hub never missed a major activity at the farm. Volunteerism ran in his blood and some of his other volunteer efforts included the Polar Express, Woman's Club Antique Show, Bicentennial Quilt Show, Food pick-up and delivery for Haven of Rest, and Board of Elections poll worker. For the past 10 years, Hub managed most of these activities despite arising at 5 a.m. three times each week to undergo kidney dialysis. Until a few years ago, he still found the time and energy to sail on Lake Erie. And very recently, he still enjoyed visiting with his friends in the Wisdom Club and in Romeo's, and going to Brandywine Falls or the Beaver Marsh in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Hub lived life looking forward with a "can-do" attitude, and was grateful for his opportunities, supportive friends and loving family. He will be missed. Hub was a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy Seabees. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to Case Barlow Farm P.O. Box 2143 Hudson, Ohio 44236 or to the First Congregational Church of Hudson. Arrangements were made by Johnson-Romito Funeral Home.
