Charles E. Hubbell, the son of George Hubbell and Minnie (White) Hubbell Butts, was born January 3, 1940 in Cabool, Missouri. He passed from this life February 8, 2010 at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
He grew up and attended school in Missouri. He left school in the eighth grade to work and help his family. In 1974 he moved to Rose, Oklahoma, making it his home until he departed this life.
Charlie was a truck driver for several years, but all the locals of Rose knew him as their beloved bus driver. He loved kids dearly and they loved him. Charlie never met a stranger. His favorite saying was, “He don’t know it yet, but he’s gonna be my friend!” He had a love for all people and loved spending time with his family.
He was preceded in death by six brothers, Steve, John, Jay, George Jr., Walter and Luther; a lifelong best friend, Robert Kirkland; and two sisters, Celia Kozenecki and Imogene Brown.
He is survived by one brother, Jack Hubbell of Shephardsville, Kentucky; four sisters, Mildred Lacy, twin sister Fay Hubbell, Patsy Hendricks and Etheline Hubbell, all of Cabool; lifelong best friend Margaret Kirkland and family of Rose, Oklahoma; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
