    My deepest sympathy to Helen and James and Family on your loss. Henry was a good friend of mine and I shall miss him dearly. along with the Yearly Letters and calls. I had the pleasure of working with him at Eastern Airlines, where he was an Aviation Mechanics mechanic who was a wealth of information and knowledge and well thought of by his fellow workers and friends. I was glad to be a friend of Betty and Hank . May God Bless You Both.

    I new Henry Hubbard for more than 40 years, having met him when I was dating his daughter, whom I married. In his life Mr. Hubbard was a soldier, a pilot, an aircraft mechanic, a husband, father, and grandfather, a carpenter and jack of all trades as it regarded repairing or maintaining all things automotive or electrical, which sometimes included my cars and my homes. He was a decent man who was proud of his service to his country. He was married for more than 50 years to his wife, Betty, until her passing just a few years ago. He loved his children and grandchildren and was always welcoming and generous to me. Despite his advanced years, I had truly hoped he would be with us for a few more.
