It is with great sadness that our family share the passing of Gregory Victor Hubbard during the early morning hour of January 29, 2022 with his family by his side. He fought so very hard to overcome cancer but found his fight ended sooner than anyone expected. Greg was born on October 25, 1958 in Knoxville to the late Victor and Beulah Hubbard. He was the youngest of seven boys but has shown such strength as four of his older brothers have preceded him in death – David, Cecil, Mick and Bill Hubbard – gone too early as well. Left behind to remember his love and devotion to his family is his loving wife Sandra of 41 years and his children – daughter, Amanda Hubbard Davis and son, Travis Hubbard both of Knoxville. A big piece of “Papaw’s” heart belonged to grandchildren Kayleigh and Bentley Davis. He also leaves behind two brothers – Dan (Shirley) Hubbard, Knoxville and Tom Hubbard, Mabank, TX; two sisters – Kay (Alan) Drinnen, Murfreesboro and Elizabeth Weaver, Knoxville. Several nieces and nephews will miss their Uncle Greg. After four years in the U.S. Army, Greg completed training at TN Institute of Electronics and began a life long career as a service technician. Early on several jobs required travel but upon starting a family, he and Sandra settled back in Knoxville. This started a lasting friendship with Jim Greenlee and installing alarm systems. In October 1992, Greg began work with Thermocopy/Centriworks that continued until his passing. He built relationships thru his strong work ethic and special people skills that crossed over with co-workers, customers and even his bosses. The family is so very appreciative of Kevin Johnson, Steve Sumner and a heartfelt thanks to Kathy Moretto. His wife and family want to thank UT Oncology with Dr. Faulkner, NP Jessica, nurse Rochelle as well as the dedicated staff at the Oncology clinic for their time, effort and kindness shown during his treatments. We also appreciate UT Hospice for the support given to the family the last week Greg was home. Greg Hubbard was a tower of strength and love for Sandra and his entire family all of his life. No doubt we will miss him. “Go rest high on that mountain brother, your work here on earth is done”. Family and friends will meet at Mynatt Funeral Home Fountain City Chapel on Wednesday, February 2 for a receiving of friends between 5pm and 7pm. A graveside service will be held Friday, February 4 at 8:30am at the East Tennessee Veterans Cemetery on John Sevier Highway.
