Steven Andrew “Red” Hubschman
June 09, 1990 ‒ November 13, 2015
Formerly of Mount Gilead, Ohio
A young man who had overcome many obstacles in his life, Steven Andrew Hubschman, also known as “Red”, succumbed to the temptation of heroin after many sober months. The temptation left him lifeless, a fate seen much too often in our society today. Steven died Friday, November 13, 2015, in his apartment, alone. He was living in Lexington and formerly of Mount Gilead, and was only 25 years young.
On June 9, 1990, Steven was born in Painesville, Ohio, and after years of enduring the cruelty of the foster care system, was welcomed with loving and open arms to the family of Jeff and Peggy (Ruhl) Hubschman in Mount Gilead.
Steven attended Mount Gilead High School, graduating in the class of 2008. A naturally gifted athlete, he enjoyed running cross country and track, and swimming on the swim team.
For the past several months, Steven had enjoyed working at Next Generation Films in Lexington, where he was known as “Red” and where he was feeling appreciated for his talents.
Steven had been baptized into Christ at the Pleasant Grove Church of Christ on May 6, 2012.
A sports fanatic, Steven loved watching sports of all types, especially his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes and Pittsburgh Steelers. He also enjoyed fishing, snowboarding and video games.
A very intelligent and kind young man, Steven had limitless potential if he could have overcame his addiction. His family was proud of him for how hard he tried to overcome all of his life’s challenges and struggles.
Left to cherish his memory are his parents: Jeff and Peggy Hubschman; five siblings: Raymond (Mandi) Hubschman, Kate Hubschman, Anna (Michael) Burkey, Sarah Hubschman and Jenny Hubschman; a nephew and niece: Alex and Sophia Hubschman; grandparents: Ed and Judy Ruhl, and Doris Hubschman; a great-grandmother, Laura Ruhl; and too many aunts, uncles and cousins to count.
Steven was preceded in death by an infant brother, Andrew Hubschman; and grandfather, Jerry Hubschman.
His family will greet friends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, November 19th, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services honoring his life will follow there at 1 p.m., with Pastor Ray Linn officiating. Burial will follow in Bryn Zion Cemetery.
Memorial contributions may be made to Gideons International or to Heartbeat of Morrow County, and they may be sent to the care of the funeral home.
