Lester E. Zubke of Hustisford was surrounded by his loving family when he went home to be with his Savior, Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at the age of 84 years.  He was born June 4, 1933 in the Town of Emmett, the son of Walter and Hilda (nee Duehring) Zubke.  Les graduated from Hustisford High School, and shortly thereafter enlisted in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict. After the Korean Conflict, his ship was assigned to do a goodwill tour completing a trip around the world.   After his service in the Navy, he married Judith Klatt at Zion Ev. Lutheran Church in Clyman in 1958.   He worked for UST Corporation for 35 years as a Division Manager until his retirement in 1991.  Les was a long time member of Bethany Ev.

Board President for 25 years, and a member of the Hustisford American Legion Post #420, Hartford VFW Post #8834, Dodge County 40/8, Voiture #856.  Les enjoyed spending time on the farm, and also deer and turkey hunting, fishing in Canada, as well as, playing golf with his friends and traveling.  Wintering in Scottsdale, AZ was always a reprieve from Wisconsin winters.  He also enjoyed playing cards with family and friends, especially sheepshead.
