Humbert was born on January 20, 1927, in Cleveland, Ohio. He grew up in Little Italy, however he lived most of his life in Wickliffe and Willoughby Hills. Hardworking, he dedicated many years to the UA Local 120 Pipefitters before becoming a general contractor. Humbert was truly a jack of all trades. At the early age of 12 he taught himself how to build cabinets and his talents and creativity only improved from there. He would get an idea in his head, turn it into a sketch, and eventually turn the sketch into a piece of work. He was a true genius. He also loved gardening, cooking, and baking, especially bread, and making wine. He always made sure everyone had plenty to eat and drink at family dinners. Humbert was proud of his heritage, he loved Italian music, and could be found listening to those like Dean Martin, however he never shied away from a great country song. In his younger years he and his wife participated in many ballroom dance competitions, to which they won many awards. He was quite the negotiator, a trait to which he passed along to his family. On August 9, 2022, God called Humbert home, leaving his family missing his love, care, and great sense of humor.

Cremation by DeJohn Crematory.
