  1. Our hearts are broken over the loss of such a wonderful and loving man! Ellis has such wonderful memories of being with Uncle Hubert and Aunt Mary. Our love and prayers are with all of you.

  2. Wonderful memories of he and my dad sitting in his screened in porch drinking beer and telling lies. First time he took me fishing he said if I spit on the worms I would catch more fish – I still do it today 40+ years later. God needed a fishing partner and he picked the best!

  3. Barry, Ricky and family. You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. Let us know if we can do anything for you. We love you guys. Michael and Loretta Gibbs and famIly

  4. You will be missed Great-Uncle Hubert. Cooper tells me stories about how you went fishing with Jim, him, and Jimmy. You and Jim were in one car and Cooper and Jimmy were in the truck. Jim and you took off and left them behind. You asked Jim where was the beer and he told you in Coop’s truck and how you told Jim to stop the car so they could catch up. You are now in a better place with your beloved Mary Ellen.

  5. Hubert was our very dear Uncle. We will truly miss him. All our prayers go out to the family.

    Much Love,
    Chuck and Lavonne Westbrooks
