Obituary for David Hubbard

David Hubbard, age 79, having faithfully finished his work on Earth, departed his domicile of clay heavenward early Monday morning, June 27, 2022, from his home at Quicksand, KY, after a lengthy illness, with wife, Lavonne, by his side. Born August 23, 1942, David is long remembered as an educator in the Breathitt County School District, having served in varying capacities from 1964 to 1997, ultimately retiring as Assistant Superintendent after serving as principal at Turner Elementary, LBJ Elementary and Breathitt High School.

David is survived by his caring wife of 51 years, Lavonne (Fugate), two sons, Jason Spicer (Dircianne) Hubbard of Houston, TX, and Judd David (Alison) Hubbard of Lexington, KY. Grandchildren, Brynne Wesley (Randy) McKinsey, Campbell, Lincoln, Sophia and Olivia also mourn his passing. One brother and three sisters also survive; Ronnie (Donna) Hubbard of Leeco, KY, Wanda (a beloved mother figure) and husband, A.T. Hayes, of Campton, KY, Marlynn (Pete) LaSala of Richmond, KY, and Elizabeth Martin of Berea, KY.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Acey P. and Dorothy Hubbard, as well as a brother, Donnie Hubbard, who had made his home in Alexandria, KY.

David was a longtime member of the Jackson First United Methodist Church, having faithfully served His Lord as Chairman of the Board and Lay Leader. David also served on the Methodist Mountain Mission Board and the Breathitt County Senior Citizens Board.

In his retirement years, David enjoyed numerous interests, including the refurbishment of antique furniture, gardening, UK basketball and a hotly contested Rook game with brother- partner, Ronnie (whom no one ever accused of cheating).

Facing numerous health crises over the past 18 months, David was secure in his faith. With Lavonne by his side, and undergirded by the support of his church, family and community, he’d vowed to enjoy his days here as gifts from God, be them few or many, with the certainty of heaven beyond. As David would often say, “Whether I go, or whether I stay, I’m a winner either way.”

A Celebration of Life for David Hubbard will be held July 2nd at the Jackson United Methodist Church beginning at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Jackson United Methodist Church.
