Christopher Michael Haubert
July 11, 1968 ‒ July 25, 2009
“A curious cub” from the day he was born, Chris Haubert “always wanted to know how everything worked.” He had nearly every electronic gadget known to man, and if it was not apparent how it worked he would take it apart piece by piece and then put it back together.
Christopher Michael Haubert, age 41, of Westerville, died on Saturday, July 25, 2009, at the Grant Medical Center in Columbus from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on June 30, 2009.
On July 11, 1968, Christopher was born in Columbus, Ohio, the son of Linda (Reznor) Harvey and the late Michael Haubert. Having lived in the Westerville area for most of his life, he graduated from Westerville North High School in the Class of 1986. He then furthered his education at the DeVry Institute.
After working for a brief period of time at the Limited, Chris worked for over ten years for Rockwell International in Columbus as a computer technician. Most recently, he found a job where he had a true passion with the Emerson Liebert Corporation in Delaware, as a senior power technician for their computer systems.
Having recently found salvation, Chris had been studying with Mark Bennett of Xenos Christian Fellowship in Westerville.
An avid motorcycle enthusiast, Chris has been riding motorcycles for over fifteen years, and he was a member of a Honda Motorcycle Club.
Having inherited a love for automobiles from his grandfather, Jesse, Chris loved to tinker in the garage with his supped up Nissan Sentry and Nissan Z. He also had an extensive collection of radio controlled cars (RC Cars) that he loved to work on. This was a hobby he shared with his brother, Doug, with whom he had a special relationship.
If he wasn’t working on his own cars, he would be tuned into all things NASCAR, as he was an avid fan of the sport.
Chris will be dearly missed by his mother, Linda (Don) Harvey of Cardington; his brother, Douglas (Jennifer) Haubert of Westerville, and their daughter, Nova; two uncles: Stephen (Marleen) Reznor of Moen, Belgium, and Jeffrey Reznor of Columbus; one aunt, Teresa (Al) Tammany of Santa Rosa, California; and numerous cousins.
In addition to his father, Chris was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents: Jesse and Myrtle Reznor.
His family will observe a private service of remembrance in the home of Mark and Shannon Bennett on Sunday, August 9, 2009.
