Helmut Huber Cause Of Death
Helmut Huber died peacefully on 28 March 2022. The death was confirmed by PEOPLE. A representative of the family spoke to the outlet and shared, “A family man, he was a loyal friend, and loved them deeply. With a roaring sense of humor, a larger-than-life personality, and a practical problem-solver, he lived his life to the fullest. Mr. Huber who formerly raced motorcycles in Austria was the first-rate skier, and avid golfer, belonging to the Garden City Golf Club and Westhampton Country Club.”
His wife Susan’s publicist Jessica Sciacchitano wrote, “Helmut’s passing is a tremendous loss for all who knew and loved him. He was an extraordinary husband, father, grandfather, and friend”. The cause of his death wasn’t revealed but it appears to be natural.

How Many Kids Did Helmut Huber Leave Behind?
TV Actress Susan Lucci married Helmut Huber in 1969. They were married for over 50 years until his death. According to Deadline, they dated for only three weeks before getting married on 13 September 1969. They reportedly met at Long Island’s Garden City Hotel.
He was working at the restaurant as a chef and head of food and beverage service, and in an interview with People in June 1999, he said it was love at first sight. Susan was waitressing at the restaurant.
Susan broke off her previous engagement after she learned that she had stronger feelings for Helmut than for her ex-fiance. “The first time I saw Susie, it hit me,” he said. “Still today, she walks in a room, and I just light up.”
In 2019, while speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle, she shared, “I was thinking at the time that he was much more attractive than I ever knew, and I shouldn’t be feeling like that. Something is wrong with this picture”. “But I didn’t know what to do with it.”
She further explained to the outlet, “I feel so lucky too that Helmut is so secure and I always look to him because he’s very smart. I’m not even gonna say supportive, it’s so beyond that. It’s involved, it’s hands-on, really there for me.”
Susan was born on 23 December 1946 in Scarsdale, New York, to Jeanette (Granquist) and Victor Lucci, a building contractor. She is of Italian (father) and Swedish, German, and French (mother) descent.
After his death, Helmut left behind two sons, two daughters, eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. His son Andreas Huber has an IMDB account where he received thanks for Harry’s Heroes: The Full English (2020). He also appeared on Home & Family (2017) and Das Aktuelle Sportstudio (2011).
