"Bro. Cornelius died at Nazareth Home on December 2, 2023. He was born in Louisville, KY on June 7, 1936, to Cornelius E. Hubbuch, Sr. and Mary Louise Rueff, who predeceased him along with his sister, Carolyn Knop, and his brother, Glen. Bro. Cornelius is survived by his sister, Marilyn Allen, and brother, John, as well as many (about 90) nieces, nephews, grand and great grand nieces, and nephews. He grew up in Louisville, graduated from St. Xavier HS in 1954 joining the Xaverian Brothers the same year. Bro. Cornelius was a Xaverian Brother for 69 years and held three college degrees--a BA from The Catholic University of America, and masters from Wesleyan U. in CT and the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley CA. Following undergraduate college, he taught at Xaverian HS in NY (1960-68) serving as Assistant Principal his last two years there. His next assignment was as principal of Ryken HS in Leonardtown, MD until 1976. Then began a long series of congregational leadership positions as Provincial of one of the American Xaverian Provinces until 1982 and Vicar General of the congregation from 1989 to 2001. In between and after leadership roles, Bro. Cornelius worked with priests and religious from around the world in a religious life renewal program at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, CA and another one in Toronto, Canada as well as serving on congregational leadership teams primarily involved in personnel and formation work. This included teaching periods in Congo and Kenya for the Xaverian Brothers and retreat work for many diocesan priests' groups and men and women religious in the US and in Canada. In 2014, Bro. Cornelius retired from an active Congregational leadership role and moved to Ryken House in Louisville and from there with the rest of the Louisville Xaverian Community he moved to Treyton Oak Towers in 2021. In the years since and until very recently he was active in the Xaverian Associates program, retreat work, and different activities at St. Xavier HS. Also, he delighted in being able for the first time in many years to join in and even organize different family events as the favorite Uncle Bud to so many nieces and nephews in multiple generations. In early November 2023 declining physical health and memory issues required his move to Nazareth Home for added care which he received with the skill and kindness that the Nazareth staff have shown the Xaverian Brothers for many years. Bro. Cornelius requested that he be cremated, and his remains be buried in the Xaverian cemetery on the St. Xavier HS campus. There will be an opportunity for family and Xaverian Brothers to meet visitors starting at 10:30 AM followed by a funeral Mass at St. Agnes Church at 1920 Newburg Road, Louisville, KY on Saturday, December 9, 2023 at 11:00 AM. Burial of the ashes will take place on Monday, Dec. 11 at 11:30 AM in the Xaverian cemetery at St. Xavier HS. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the Xaverian Brothers at 211 West Oak Street, Apt 919, Louisville, KY 40203 for the congregation's Kenyan and Congolese missions that Bro. Cornelius spent significant time, skill and energy developing. Ratterman and Sons on Bardstown Road is entrusted with the arrangements and online condolences may be shared at www. ratterman. com.
