In Keeping with Hubert’s wishes cremation has take place. A Celebration of Hubert’s Life is planned for a later date. Hubert was a fisherman and was a helper at Fortune Light House. He loved music, especially the guitar and to laugh and have fun. One of his great joys was to dress up and make people laugh. When you visited him he always wanted to give you something nobody left empty handed. He always wanted to make sure you had a lunch and left with a full belly. At one point he was Mayor of Point May; he started up the Beaver program and was involved in Cadets. He will always be remembered for his giving ways and he would do without for anyone. His family will hold his memories in their hearts forever. To honor his life the most important thing he left behind was his wonderful family who will continue to follow his traditions and kindness in his memory. Forever loved and remembered. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Serenity Funeral Home, Grand Bank. We listen. We learn. We walk with you.
