Obituary of Ron Hubbs
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Father, Grandpa (Pop Pop), and Great Grandpa, Ronald Hubbs on December 17, 2023. Predeceased by his Father Gordon Hubbs, Mother Eleanore (née Maloney), and brother Allan. He is survived by his sons Kelly (Cherie), Todd, and Jason, his grandchildren Michael (Dana), Jenna (Joel), Riley and Chloe, as well as several great grandchildren, and his long-time special friend Myrtle McKay.
Ronald was born and raised in Saskatoon, SK specifically in the Nutana neighbourhood. As a young boy he played hockey, curling, and a round of golf or two, and would ride his bike from one end of the city to the other. As an adult, any time he was passing through the city with his boys, he would always make a point of saying “I remember when the city used to end here.”
Ron had a lifelong career with the Royal Bank of Canada, and upon his retirement in Yorkton, he filled his days with odd jobs and gardening. Ron and his friend Myrtle took great pride in their yards and gardens, spending hours tending to them to keep them weed free and manicured. After a long day outside in the sun, he liked to kick back in the shade and admire his work while chatting with friends or family.
Ron was a member of several clubs and was dedicated to all ventures he partook in. He was also an active member of the Westview United Church as well as Board Member. One of Ron’s fondest church events was their Spuds and Splits fundraiser where he & Myrtle would grow many a potato for. He was a longtime fan of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Toronto Blue Jays, and pretty much any curling, hockey, football, and baseball team that happened to be on TV that day. He was also a long-time fan of the Yorkton Terriers, and a season ticket holder – rarely missing a game.
Ron’s passion for life, hard work, and devotion could be most seen through the love he had for his sons. He would support them any way he could. If the boys played hockey, he was involved with hockey. Anything the boys were involved with, there was Ron to cheer them on, during games, and throughout their lives.
Ron loved to visit anyone, anywhere, and at anytime, and will be greatly missed by family and in the community.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Ron Hubbs, please visit Tribute Store
