Obituary of Arthur Thomas Hubbard

On August 4 1937 the legacy began and it was a Rip-tale snorter of a ring dang do! Today we say goodbye to the man that truly was one of a kind. He used to say “It’s a good thing God only made one because the world’s not ready for any more like me!” Husband, father, grandpa, brother, brother in law and uncle, Art Hubbard – burping coach and troubadour extraordinaire. It didn’t matter what time of day or night you showed up at the door, all were made welcome. Even the Avon lady ( and you know who you are!) After a valiant battle with the “C” word, he left us quietly in his sleep early Saturday morning. There’s no doubt in our mind he’s off somewhere having an interview with music playing in the background. And you can bet your ass it’s Bluegrass! Art’s/Dad’s passing has left a huge hole on this planet and our hearts hurt so much to see him go. He touched the lives of so many. Whether it was jamming with friends old and new, reading to his grand daughters in the dark with head lamps, working as Santa’s helper or singing at the nursing home, cracking limitless jokes/one liners, we could go on and on… Please come and help us honour the time we had with this amazing, one of a kind guy. Visitation-McBurney Funeral Home in Wingham on Tuesday June 14, 2011 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Celebration of Life on Wednesday June 15, 2011 at 1pm – Wingham Salvation Army. Jam session to follow at the Wingham legion. PLEASE BRING YOUR INSTRUMENTS. Love Janet, Cheryl, Rob and Susan (Those Works of Art)
