Kenneth Vaughn Hubbard
Kenneth Vaughn Hubbard of Lynden, Washington, was born in Bellingham, Washington on September 25, 1947 to Duane and Chestella Hubbard.
"Hubb" died on Sept 27, 2020, from complications of diabetes and Alzheimer's. He was preceded in death by both parents and his brother, David who died as a child.
Hubb loved his kids, his wife, his guns, his Marlboro Red in a box, his little dogs, his Harley and his Black Velvet. Not necessarily in that order. He was an avid reader whose favorite literary works included Shotgun News and Guns and Ammo of which he read volume after volume. He hated rain, the song "You Are My Sunshine" (as performed by Johnnie Johnson), Democrats and liars. Not necessarily in that order. He was a master body and paint man who built his business, Hubbard Body and Paint, from the ground up. Hubb was also great at gardening, gunsmithing, and hitting beer cans at thirty yards with his 45. He was a collector of Everything! He was well known for being a member of the Pilot and Leverite Clubs, he would pile it over there or leaver right here.
Marshall Matt Dillon, The Rifleman and John Wayne were his TV heroes. And he was a larger than life hero for his six children: Kenny, Angela, David, Karen, Jacque and Jennifer. He met the love of his life. Johnnie Johnson in 1996 and they took their vows in 2008 with his son, Ken Hubbard Jr., officiating. He was an honest and faithful friend to those that shared his interests and stories. When Hubb took off for that big gun store in the sky, he left behind his kids, Ken Hubbard (wife Patty) Angie Cole (Husband Eric) Dave Hubbard, Karen Hubbard, Jacque Hubbard and Jennifer Hubbard; his brother Mark Hubbard and sister Dawn Hubbard. He will be missed sorely by his six children, seven grandkids and two great grandkids. He treasured his family.
Special thanks to Gittle Goodman who cared for him as a patient and a person for the last 25 years.
There is an old saying "It's not the destination that counts, it's the ride." Thank-you from all of us, Ken Hubbard, it was one hell of a ride.
