Anthony M. Huber, a 26-year-old Kenosha native, died on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 among heroes who fought for the cause he believed in.
Born in Kenosha on August 21, 1994, the son of Karen Bloom and John Huber, Jr. He was educated in Kenosha’s school.
Skateboarding is his favorite thing, he is very artistic. His wit and comic personality will be deeply missed by people.
Anthony who survived is his mother Karen Bloom; father, John Huber Jr.; six siblings, Richard “RJ” (Stephanie) Hughes, Caitlyn Hughes, Amber (Brian) Beasley, John Gonzales, Jade Huber and Katlynn Norman; an aunt Mary Rose (Kurt) Kennedy and great aunt Susan Hughes; an uncle, Mark Bloom; and grandfather Richard Bloom. His cousins, other relatives and many of his friends will also miss him.
His grandparents Josephine Huber (Josephine Huber) and John Huber (John Huber, Sr.) before his death. With his grandmother Patricia Hughes.
While many people held their breath and waited for the jury to decide the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse, the girlfriend of one of the men he killed said that this would not change what happened.
Hannah Gittings only dated Anthony Huber for about six months before his death, but she said their contact was instant. Gittings recently stopped using heroin and Huber has been sober for seven years.
Gittings is a single mother who was going through a breakup when she met Huber. He was recently convicted of a case of domestic abuse and repetitive modifier disruptive behavior, which increased his sentence.
Gittings said at the Kenosha County Courthouse on Wednesday: “The assistance and emotion we provide to each other is like we have a small temporary family.”
During the state’s closing speeches, the chief prosecutor Thomas Binger asked the jury to remember that all lives—even people with criminal records—are valuable.
Huber was a friend of Jacob Blake. Jacob Blake was shot and killed by Kenosha police on August 23, 2020, two days before Rittenhouse arrived in Kenosha. Rittenhouse and others said they came to the city to protect businesses from protests and robberies that broke out the day after the police shot them.
Rittenhouse was accused of shooting 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Huber, and wounding 27-year-old Geki Grosskruts.
In the past two weeks, prosecutors have portrayed Rittenhouse as a reckless “chaotic tourist” asking for trouble. The defense portrayed him as a responsible young man who was viciously attacked by lawless thugs.
