PORT JERVIS, N.Y. - William W. Hubbard, 71, of Port Jervis, N.Y., passed away suddenly July 5, in Port Jervis.
He was born on March 26, 1947, in Queens, N.Y., the son of William Saxton Hubbard and Ruth Regina Woodward Hubbard. He attended St. Paul School in Garden City and continued his education at Springfield College earning his B.S. in mathematics. He began his teaching career with the Port Jervis school district as a mathematics teacher and became head of the math department and was president of the Port Jervis teachers' union. He furthered his education at Montclair State University earning his masters. Upon his retirement he dedicated his life to tutoring his many students, whom he so loved.
Bill was an amazing husband, father and friend. He loved life and helping others. Bill had so many talents and there wasn't anything he couldn't fix, but was ever so humble.
Bill loved skiing, which lives on in his son, Adam, and grandson, Colten. He was an avid skier, pilot and sailor. He was an assistant ski coach to the Special Olympics. He started the Port Jervis High School ski club. He was a director at the YMCA Camp in Huguenot for many years. Bill was the founder and leader of the 4-H swine club in Sussex. Farming was a passion in his life. Bill recently served on the planning board of Port Jervis and was on the board of Guymard Lake Association.
Bill had a smile and kindness that made you feel like you swallowed the sun. He will be remembered forever by his many family and friends. He was a loving husband to his wife, Roseann. She will miss him every minute of every day. He was our rock, he gave endlessly and asked nothing in return.
He is survived by his loving wife, Roseann Hubbard; son, Adam Hubbard and his wife, Heather, his grandson, Colten; his son, Patrick Ryan and Thomas Rochelle; sister, Janet Fisher and Jerry Collier; brother-in-law, John Marko and Andrea Barth; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
