Lynn Hubbs, 55, left us to be with the Lord on December 22, 2012, being a hero. While driving a bus full of college students he experienced health issues, before his death occurred, he was able to safely drive the bus off the road and to a stop, saving many lives.
Lynn was born in Des Moines, to Della and Lee Glen Hubbs on December 25, 1956.
He took great joy in providing for his family. He was a wonderful son, father, husband, brother and grandfather. More important than any of those, he was a hero, dedicating his life to save and protect others. He has truly touched the lives of many.
Lynn completed schooling to pursue his passion. He became a reserve police officer for Des Moines in 2000, dedicating his life to serve others. Lynn also enjoyed being a funeral escort and driving bus for Trans Iowa.
He enjoyed NASCAR, hunting and riding motorcycles. He was a member of the Blue Knights whom he loved to ride and socialize with. Lynn also enjoyed traveling, seeing most of the country through his journeys.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 31 years, Doreen; two beautiful children, Heather Riccio and Mathhew Hubbs; granddaughters, Alexis, Brooke and Kerrine; sister, LeAnna Wood; many other loving family and friends.
Lynn is now reunited with his parents, and his brother, Lonnie Hubbs.
