Hjelmer Nis Huberg is the son of Hans and Mary (Hjelm) Huberg. He was born on a farm south of Royal on Jan. 21, 1914. His childhood years were spent on the farm near Royal.

Hjelmer married Dorothy Zieman of Peterson on Dec. 27, 1934. Following their marriage, they lived on a farm three miles southwest of Royal until June of 1955 when they moved into Royal. In the beginning years of their marriage, Hjelmer milked 50 head of Holstein cows and his hobbies were his love of horses and his Shetland ponies. In 1952, Hjelmer had the entrepreneurial spirit and started Huberg Trucking. He ran the company for 52 years taking his last trip at the age of 90.

Hjelmer and Dorothy went on many trips together. He most of all enjoyed having his family close and Sunday coffee hour at their home after church. He was a lifetime member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Hjelmer & Dorothy just celebrated their 77th anniversary in December with their family.
