John “Jack” Calvin Hubbard passed away, Sunday, July 8, 2012, after a courageous battle against lung cancer.
Military graveside services were held Saturday, July 14, 2012, at Kohlerlawn Cemetery in Nampa under the direction of the Nampa Funeral Home, Yraguen Chapel.
Jack was born Sept. 8, 1930 in McCall to Mary Alice and Orval Hubbard. At the early age of 9 he and his older brother Orval (Hub) lost both their parents to illness.
He was raised by Rose and George Blackwell, who were good friends of the Hubbards. He went on to graduate from McCall High School.
Jack joined the Air Force at the age of 18 and then went on to reserve status. Four years later he met, and married the love of his life, Delores Ann Wallis. Jack and Delores lived in Donnelly and Orofino early in their marriage, where he was a logger for several different companies.
After having their three children, Teresa Ann, Katie Ellen and Scott Calvin, he chose a full-time military career where he would spend 16 years active duty/reserve in the Air Force, and 22 years active duty/reserve in the Army.
Jack spent an additional 16 years civil service time in the Army Reserve Technician Program. He was appointed to chief warrant officer in the Army Reserve in 1969. Jack would go on to achieve the status of senior chief warrant officer, grade 4, stationed at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City, Utah.
After a great military career he retired and resided between Nampa and Donnelly. Jack was an avid golfer and USGA and IGA senior member. If you ever had the pleasure to play with Dad you would know that the par 3s were the most important because they were the beer holes!
He is survived by his wife, Delores Ann Hubbard; his children, Teresa Ann Mooney and son in law, Ryan Sterling Mooney, and Scott Calvin Hubbard and daughter in law, Erica Ann Hubbard; Jack’s five grandchildren, Carri (husband Brandon), Kyle, Kade, Isabel, and Cole; his four great grandchildren, Jayden, Landon, Myles, and Gracie; and Jack’s brother-in-law, Bill Wallis and his wife, Jeri Wallis; and sister in law, Eva Hubbard.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Katie Ellen, and a brother, Orval.
Our Dad was a great strength to our family and will be missed and remembered by all who knew him.
