William Sutton Hubbard was born on July 2, 1962, to Withrow Hubbard Jr. and Shirley Mae Redman Hubbard and ended his journey on earth on January 23 at the Cleveland Clinic after a courageous battle against liver disease.
William was a loving husband to his wife, Amy Rae Glazzard Hubbard. He was a proud father of Michael Hubbard (Rebecca) and Mark Hubbard (Kelsey) all of Covington, VA.
He treasured his grandchildren, Dakota Hubbard, Levi Hubbard, Bryson Hubbard, and Alaina Hubbard. He adored being “Yum-Yum” to Ray, Ellie, Evie, and Elorah Glazzard.

William worked his entire life in the logging industry, as well as careers in heavy equipment, 20 years at Boys Home, a farmer, and most recently a partner with his wife at Little Learners Day Care.
