Susan Lucci Honors Her Late Husband During Daytime Emmy Awards


During the most recent Daytime Emmy Awards, actress Susan Lucci honored her late husband Helmut Huber. Susan appeared for an emotional tribute to introduce the In Memoriam segment of the award show.

Susan took a moment to honor Helmut, who passed away in March at the age of 84. The couple was married for over 50 years after they met at a hotel in Long Island, New York. They dated for just three weeks before he proposed.

Susan shared at the awards ceremony, “I am so happy to be here with you tonight celebrating people that we love and have lost this year. I send my sympathy [from] my heart to the loved ones of those we pay tribute to tonight. My husband, Helmut Huber, was a larger than life force of nature. He was a confident caregiver who knew exactly how to make things happen and to keep us all laughing at the same time. Helmut loved and was so proud of our magnificent children and our grandchildren.”
