HUBENAK, JOE A. (1937~2001) Joe A. Hubenak was born July 2, 1937, in Frenstat, Burleson County, Texas to John and Rosie Hubenak. In his early years, Hubenak was a farmer with his father and served in the National Guard for eight years. After graduation from Alvin Junior College and the University of Houston, Hubenak devoted his life to the service of his community in a variety of capacities ranging from owning his own accounting practice, elected political office and the ownership of automobile dealerships. He was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1968 where he served for 10 years. He chaired the Committee on Agriculture and Livestock. He served on various committees including State Affairs, Correctional Institutions, Rules, Business and Marketing and Social Services Committees. While in the House, he led the effort to create 6,000-acre Brazos Bend State Park, which today has more visitors than any other state park. He also effected passage of legislation, which created benefits for survivors of volunteer fighters killed in the line of duty. In the 1990's, he was appointed by Governor Ann Richards to serve on the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole. Besides his extensive business interests, Hubenak was active in the community as director and past president of the Fort Bend County Fair Association and past president of the Jaycees, Lions Club and the Rose-Rich Chamber of Commerce. He was a member of the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees. Obituary taken from the Rosenberg Herald Coaster, Thursday, November 16, 2001.
