Tribute


Dwain Edward Huebert, 83, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma passed away very peacefully on December 1, 2022. Dwain was born in Cordell, Oklahoma on January 4, 1939, to Ed Huebert and Elsie Traudt Huebert. Dwain had one sister, LaDonna Huebert Hunt of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Dwain graduated from Corn Bible Academy in 1957 and attended the Auto Machine School in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Dwain did not like school when he was younger but excelled in auto mechanics. Dwain was inducted into the Army on November 7, 1961, completing basic training at Fort Carson, Colorado and was later assigned to Fort Richardson, Anchorage, Alaska. Dwain met the love of his life, Jean Marie Wolstenholm on a blind date and they were later married on July 14, 1962. Dwain and Jean lived together in Alaska while he was stationed there. Dwain loved telling stories of their time in Alaska when they lived in a camper and Jean worked at a bank. Jean passed away just before their 59th anniversary on June 28, 2021. Dwain and Jean had three children: Dana, Ricky, and Mark Huebert whom they loved dearly. Dwain and his wife, Jean, helped start a Mennonite Brethren church in the mid 60’s and were very active members of the church. Dwain built their first motorhome from an old school bus. They later own many other RV’s. They loved traveling with their family in their RV and took numerous trips to Colorado, Nebraska, and California. They often traveled in the RV for weekend “get away” trips when the kids were younger. They owned homes in Oklahoma and New Mexico, living part of each year in Oklahoma and part in New Mexico traveling back and forth in their RV. Dwain and Jean also owned several businesses together. They started an automotive repair shop in Edmond, Oklahoma in 1966 and owned several shops at Frontier City in Oklahoma City. They later purchased the 1887 Rodkey’s grain elevator in 1974 and converted it into an 8-stall garage for Dwain’s Automotive shop in 1975 where it stands today on 3rd street in Edmond, Oklahoma preserved as a historic site. They also have Dwain’s Automotive in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Jean was the bookkeeper for the businesses. Dwain was always active and forever curious. He was a “tinkerer.” He was continuously fixing things or taking things apart to see how they worked even when something wasn’t broken and then having to fix it. So, being a mechanic was a perfect job for him. He loved his family and loved joking around with anyone he could find. Dwain never knew a stranger and was often found “bending the ear” of anyone lucky enough to be sitting near him even if he didn’t know them. He would often tell stories of growing up on the family farm in Corn, Oklahoma or discuss new health innovations he had read about.
Dwain was preceded in death by his father, Ed Huebert and his mother, Elsie Traudt Huebert and his loving wife, Jean Marie Wolstenholm Huebert. Dwain is survived by his sister, LaDonna Huebert Hunt, and husband Reverend Gene Hunt; children Dana Huebert, sons Ricky, and wife Shaneen and Mark and wife Dovie. Dwain also left behind numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren: Max Wolstenholm, and wife Kelly and children Triston, Molly, Logan; Christian Codopony, and wife Elizabeth; Caitlin Hawkins and husband Damien and daughter Holland and son Henry; Emily Sim and husband Minbo Sim; Ryan Codopony; Aaron Huebert and Aubrey Huebert. He had numerous nieces and nephews: David Daggett, DeAnn Warfel, Christy Miller, Kerri Bell, Todd, Kristi, and Lisa Wolstenholm.
