Gary Lee Hubbard

Gary Lee Hubbard, 80, passed away peacefully at his home in Manson February 15, 2019.  Born and raised in Manson, Gary attended college at Western Washington University, where he earned a teaching certificate, and later taught History and Drivers Ed at Bothell and Edmonds.  Gary and his wife, Meleta, eventually moved back to the Chelan Valley where they finished raising their kids while returning to their orcharding roots.  They loved boating and in their later years spent much of their free time traveling the waters of the San Juan and Gulf Islands, eating as many oysters, clams, and prawns as they could harvest.  Gary was even known to land the occasional salmon.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Meleta.  He is survived by his three children, Lori Hubbard of Seattle, Brad (Janet) Hubbard of Olympia and Tara (Ben) Hubbard of Orcas Island; two granddaughters, Ella and Sophia Hubbard, of Olympia; three brothers, Elbert (Hannah) Hubbard, Duane Hubbard and Jon Hubbard, all of Manson. 

Memorial service will be held on Sunday, June 9, 11:30 a.m. at the Lake Chelan Boating Club in Manson, Wash. (next to Old Mill Park).  Food provided at 11:30 a.m. with service immediately following.
