John Leon Shubin Obituary
John Leon Shubin September 11, 1939 - February 2, 2013 This man has left this world to finally reunite with his life partner. The thought of Mom greeting him at the gates of Heaven brings tears of joy to us all. Dad was a gentleman... Quiet, yet when he spoke, you definitely listened. As a young man, he enjoyed drag racing, fishing and tote-goteing with his buddies. When his sons were born, Dad was always there and active in all our childhood adventures. From late night BBQ's to building treehouses, coaching our baseball teams and helping with our 4-H projects. After 37 years of hard work at Kern Valley Packing, he and mom enjoyed retirement in the best of ways. Family trips to Vegas and Pismo will always hold special memories. They made many ventures together in their motorhome and enjoyed the outdoors so much. Left behind to grieve... two sons, John Jr. (Julie), and Jim (Lisa); father, Leon Peter Shubin; brother, Leon Peter Shubin Jr.; sister, Monya Nazaroff. Preceded in death by his mother, Christine; sister, Janice Polston and husband Pete. A special niece, Kristi Hatcher, and the sparkle in his eye... his only grandchild, Kira Lynn Shubin; numerous nieces and nephews, and many old friends. We will all miss you and forever hold your memory close to us. Love you Daddy Visitation is Sunday, February 10th, from 1-5 p.m., at Hillcrest Mortuary. Graveside service will be held on Monday, February 11th, 10:30 a.m., at Hillcrest Memorial Park & Mortuary. www.bakersfield.com/obits
