Victor F. Hubbard
Victor Francis Hubbard was born on October 3, 1928, in Colfax, WA to the parents of Victor and Ruby Hubbard. He had two super nice sisters who loved him so much: Glory and June.
Vic graduated from Lewis and Clark High School and then entered the Navy serving as a hospital apprentice for 2 years on the warship USS Quick. Upon discharge from the Navy, he went on to Eastern Washington State College majoring in Science/Math Education, graduating with honors. He eventually entered Stanford University to get his Masters in Teaching Chemistry. He taught chemistry for 14 years at Richland High School. The summer of ’69, Vic took a group of high school students on a six-week tour of the capital cities of Europe through a program called People to People Student Ambassador Program…a very rewarding experience for him.
Eventually, Vic was hired on at Atlantic Richfield Hanford Company (ARCHO) as a manager for the Environmental Laboratory. After several years at Hanford, he retired from Boeing Computer Services in Richland.
During his time at Hanford, he took courses to become a certified professional manager (one of the first two at Hanford to be certified) and taught management classes to other managers. He excelled in everything he did. Eventually he married Donna. They were happily married for 50 years until Vic’s passing on to his heavenly home on Friday, November 24, 2023. Vic and Donna had one daughter, Amy.
Vic’s family called him a professional student. He was a man driven to excellence in everything that he did. His life was exemplary. He is greatly missed.
His children include:
Son Victor and Diane Hubbard and granddaughters Meika and Bryn and great grandson Soren, Bellingham. Another baby girl arriving in December.
Son Bradley and Sandra Hubbard, Bellingham and granddaughter, Karlee.
Daughter Christy Hubbard, Green Valley AZ, grandchildren Mitchell, Mia and Jarrod and great granddaughter, Medley.
Daughter Amy Cain, Bellingham, granddaughters Marlee and Paige.
I was fortunate enough to have Mr Hubbard as my Advanced Chemistry teacher. He was one of my favorite teachers at Col-High. I’m sure he had some interesting conversations with his students’ parents, who were mostly chemists, also. I did not know he had gone on to work at Handford. What a loss for Col-High, but I’m sure he was an excellent addition to the Hanford team.
So very sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies to you and yours.
Save a place for me up there in Heaven, Vic. I love and miss you so much.
Thoughts and prayers to the family…..So sorry for your loss
Vic and Donna have been friends of ours for many years. Vic and I worked in the same department at Boeing Computer Services. Though we didn’t work together, we did share office space. He was and has been a consistent pleasant, gentle, kind, quiet person, a man of integrity both at Boeing, the church we attended, and in our relationship with the family through their daughter, Amy. He was a detail person too. He really surprised me not too long ago when he pulled out a journal of office notes from staff meetings of long ago at Boeing. How fun it was to reminisce. His life was well lived. We look forward to the blessed day when Jesus takes us home and we can see him again.
Sending love to you Donna. Vic will be missed.
Vic was my brother in law. He was a good man, husband, father and grandfather. He was also kind and considerate. He will be greatly missed. R. I. P. Vic.
“D0 like you ought-er, put acid in water.” One of the jingles Mr. Hubbard taught us in Chemistry. Thank you, sir, for having patience AND offering extra credit opportunities to this struggling student. While I was not gifted in the subject…I did go on to graduate from U of W in pharmacy. As a pharmacist looking back; I have to believe that had I failed Mr. Hubbard’s class, I might not have set my sights so high.
Enjoy the blessings that await you in heaven. Thank you for all your blessings you gave us while you were here on earth.
