James Robert Hubbard

Passed on October 17, 2021

April 27, 1944 – October 17, 2021       It is with utmost sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved James “Jim” Hubbard, with family at his side, at the age of 77.

Jim is predeceased by his parents Charles and Annie; brothers Charles and Wentworth; sister Elaine; and sons Keith and Graham.

Left to cherish Jim’s memory are wife Karen; children Mindy (Arthur), Roberta (Barrett), and Geoffrey (Mercedes); grandchildren Abbey, Bradlee, Jaden, Adrienne, Presley, and Evan; as well as brother Ed (Darlene), sisters Ethel and Eva (Ernie), sister-in-law Leola, and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Jim was born in Stonewall, Manitoba and was the youngest of seven children. He learned the value of hard work from a young age and carried that with him throughout his life, always working hard to provide for his family. Jim had a variety of jobs over the years, and spent most of his time as a furniture mover and then a long-haul truck driver. The highway was like a home to him at times, and he had many stories to share about his adventures on the road.

Anyone who was lucky enough to know Jim would describe him as a very kind, sweet man. He had a big heart and cared deeply about his family and friends. As Jim got older, he especially loved spending time with his grandchildren – they always had nothing but smiles and laughs for grandpa. With a unique sense of humor, Jim loved to laugh and was always equipped with a good joke or two.

Jim’s family would like to thank the staff at Stonewall Hospital and the paramedics who took such great care of him. In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life is to occur at a later date.


Sad another family member has left us. Our thoughts are that he isn’t suffering anymore and is now at peace.
