William Sutton Hubbard was born on July 2, 1962, to Withrow Hubbard, Jr. and Shirley Mae Redman Hubbard and ended his journey on earth on Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, at the Cleveland Clinic after a courageous battle against liver disease.
William was a loving husband to his wife, Amy Rae Glazzard Hubbard. He was a proud father of Michael Hubbard (Rebecca) and Mark Hubbard (Kelsey) all of Covington. He treasured his grandchildren, Dakota Hubbard, Levi Hubbard, Bryson Hubbard, and Alaina Hubbard. He adored being “Yum-Yum” to Ray, Ellie, Evie, and Elorah Glazzard. He is further survived by his mother, Shirley Hubbard; four brothers, Carlos Hubbard (Gail), of Charlottesville, Greg Hubbard (Susan), Bobby Hubbard (Lillian), and Tommy Hubbard (Jennifer) all of Covington; one sister, Lisa Fridley (Barry) of Daleville; many nephews and nieces whom he loved deeply, Jason Hubbard, Crystal Hubbard, Scottie Hubbard, Sarah McKinney, BJ Hubbard, Amanda Paitsel, April Blevins, and Shane Fridley; as well as many great-nieces and great-nephews.
William worked his entire life in the logging industry as well as careers in heavy equipment, 20 years at Boys Home, a farmer, and most recently a partner with his wife at Little Learners Day Care.
William believed in helping others. He was actively pursuing help for the WV Helping Hands, a nonprofit for those less fortunate in our community. The William Hubbard food pantry at the WV Helping Hands has been established to continue his legacy of providing food for those in need.
