Frederick T. Zuber, 92, Westport

Spent many years farming and raising cows, he enjoyed quality time with family

Posted

Frederick T. Zuber, 92, of Westport, passed away on Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, at home. He was the husband of Mary E. “Betty” (Wilkie) Zuber. He was a devoted husband, father, “Jaju” and “Big Jaju,” who worked hard each and every day.

Born in Tiverton, he was son of the late Peter and Helen (Kostka) Zuber. He was a Communicant of St. John the Baptist Church, Westport. He spent many years farming the land and raising cows in Tiverton, Dartmouth, and Westport and later as a security guard at Bristol Community College.

Mr. Zuber was a member of the Westport Fair Committee and a member of the High Hill Fox and Coon Club, Dartmouth. He enjoyed reading, cooking, gardening and most importantly spending quality time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. One of his yearly highlights included his annual “Zuber Family Clambake.” He taught his family so much about love but never lectured on it. He embodied it, he acted on it, and always showed it in his own ways.

Survivors include four sons: Richard J. Zuber and his wife Patricia of Dartmouth, Paul D. Zuber and his wife Mary Ann of Westport, Thomas F. Zuber of Dartmouth and Peter J. Zuber of Westport; a daughter: Dianne M. Potter and her husband Skip of Westport; 11 grandchildren: Frederick, T.J., Patrick, Katie, Kerry, Zachary, Jonathan, Joshua, Jessica, Keely and Abigail; 11 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

He was brother of the late Joseph Zuber, Ted Zuber, Chet Zuber, Eugene Zuber, Lee Maronpot, Jenny Smith, and Cecilia Szymanski.

Visitation to which relatives and friends are invited will be Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, at the Potter Funeral Home, 81 Reed Rd., Westport, from 4 to 7 p.m.

A Memorial Mass will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to: Boston Children’s Hospital Trust, 401 Park Dr., Suite 602, Boston, MA 02215, or St. Jude Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38101 or to a charity of your choice.
