Raised in Lewiston he graduated from Lewiston High School. Hubert received his associate degree in business. He went to meat cutting school six months before enlisting in the Army and belonged to 319 Station Hospital in Bussac, France. Upon returning home he worked at Columbia Market as a meat manager.

In 1970 he decided to buy Lambert’s Market at 996 Sabattus Street in Lewiston. A short time later he converted the store to Nadeau Bakery and became known for introducing the famous miniature pastries. Hubert will always be remembered for his breads, pastries, pies, donuts and of course his beans on Saturday night. He always had a jigsaw puzzle going on the dining room table. He loved to play board games as well as fishing, summer or winter, hiking and hunting which is how he got his big back moose in 2011.

He was also a big golfer. Hubert traveled all over Europe and the states to meet his army buddies.
