Michael David Shubert, 68, of Noblesville, passed away August 25, 2018. He was born in Connersville on July 12, 1950, son of Claude and Ethel White Shubert.
Michael was a 1968 graduate of Connersville High School. He was a veteran of the US Marines, having served in Viet Nam and received two purple hearts.
As an over the road truck driver, Michael worked for several trucking companies; however, his last 24 years was with USF Holland Company. He also was skilled as an electrician.
Mike was gifted in wood working and created many beautiful pieces such as lighthouses, sleighs and checker boards.
The true passion of Michael’s heart was Gospel music, especially Southern Gospel. He sang in different Gospel Quartets and was a co-founding member of the “Hoosier Harmony Quartet” where he sang baritone and played bass. He also played bass with “The Lordsman Quartet” and the “Gospel Servants Quartet.” He was involved in every aspect of each quartet whether it was driving the bus, setting up equipment, and of course spending many hours in practice. In total, the quartets recorded more than 10 CD albums and he owned over 500 Gospel albums. Most importantly, Mike loved his Lord and it was his prayer their music would minister to the hearts of those listening.
For many years, Michael was a member of the Indiana Gospel Music Festival (IGMF) and the Indiana Gospel Music Association (IGMA).
In addition to his parents, Mike was preceded in death by a brother, Joseph Shubert and grandson, Sawyer Williams.
