Charles 'Bill' Hubbs, 87, Trafalgar

Charles W. “Bill” Hubbs, 87, passed away Monday evening, Oct. 15, 2012, at Franciscan St. Francis Health in Indianapolis. He was a resident of Trafalgar.

Bill was born Nov. 1, 1924, in Albany, Mo., to Sylvester Sam and Nova Lee (Gifford) Hubbs. He married Opal Rosaline (Lowhorn) Hubbs Feb. 23, 1952, in Lafayette, Tenn. She lovingly survives after 60 devoted years.

Bill is survived by his children, Bill (Janine) Hubbs of Oronogo, Mo., Charles Phillip (Ellen) Hubbs of Shelbyville, Jill (Gene) Kemp of Trafalgar and Joy (George) Smith of Nineveh. He will be remembered by his sister, Juanita P. Hubbs of Hulbert, Okla. Bill will be missed by his 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren (and one great-grandson on the way) whom he enjoyed dearly, as well as his nieces and nephews whom he adored.

He was preceded in death by two brothers, Sylvester Lee Hubbs and Robert J. Hubbs.

Bill obtained the first electrician’s license in the state of Oklahoma and had a journeyman’s card in many other fields. He retired in 1985 as a tool grinder with Ford Motor Company in Indianapolis, after 29 years of service.

Bill was a 40-year member and past master of the Morgantown Masonic Lodge, a former member and elder of the Samaria Christian Church, a present member of the Spearsville Church of Christ and a member of the United Auto Workers Union Local 1111.

Bill’s hobbies and activities were varied. He especially enjoyed fishing and traveling and had visited most states. Bill had a great love for playing the harmonica.

The Rev. Ed Rangel will conduct a funeral service at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 19 at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown. Friends can call from 4-8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.  Burial will be in East Hill Cemetery in Morgantown.
