Born October 6, 1957, in Palmerton, he was a son to the late Stephen and Harriet (Reihman) Hydro.


Bubser was a self employed Fabrication and Welding Engineer, working for Dorney Park as an independent contractor. In addition, when the community needed a hand with anything he was the go to guy. There wasn't anything he couldn't fix, develop or make better. He spent many days with good friends tinkering and inventing. As his close friends would say, if it  was nonsense it was priority for Bubser.

He truly made a footprint in the community that will never fade, and will be talked about for generations to come. To know him was an unforgettable experience, a unique friendship. If  you never met  him, its ashame.. because he truly was the man, the myth, the legend.
