Obituaries - Jerry Hubbart, Martha Cross

Jerry Don Hubbart, age 65, of LaBelle, passed away Tuesday, March 3, 2015, at Hope Hospice House of Lehigh Acres, Florida. 

Jerry was born February 20, 1950, to Loyd and Billie (Hoar) Hubbart, at Holton, Kansas. Jerry graduated in 1972 from Kansas State University with a BS degree in Agronomy. He spent the last 40 years devoted to South Florida agriculture.
Jerry became a member of the LaBelle (Masonic) Lodge #379 on June 20, 1998, and, in 2001, he was elected Master of the LaBelle Lodge. He was also elected to serve as District Deputy Grand Master of District 29 (Southwest Florida) from May 2007 to May 2008. For the past 12 years, Jerry dutifully served as Secretary of the LaBelle Lodge. His dedication to Freemasonry is reflected in the many men to whom he has been a mentor and a friend.
Although he's been a Florida resident for 40 years, Jerry loved reminiscing about growing up in his home town of Augusta, Kansas. He left a part of his heart there, along with his sister and two brothers. 

He is survived by his wife, Suzanne Hardee Hubbart; daughter, Lori Driscoll; step-daughter, C. Caroline Hardee; granddaughters, Kennedy and Riley Driscoll; sister, Marilyn Williams; brothers, Linton and Leslie Hubbart; and nieces and nephews. 

Memorial services will be held at the LaBelle Lodge #379, Saturday, March 14, 2015, at 11:00 am. Donations may be made to the Masonic Home by check, payable to LaBelle Lodge #379 F & AM, with a notation for the Masonic Home, and sent to PO Box 1273, LaBelle, FL 33975.
