Michael G. Hubbard

Mr. Michael G. Hubbard, 65, of Red House, NY died at the Comforts of Home Residential Facility in River Falls, WI on Thursday, October 18, 2018 following a long illness.

Born February 15, 1953 in Salamanca, NY, he was the son of the late Marvin and Susan Chopan Hubbard. He was married in June 1980 in Salamanca, NY to the former Melanie Horton Hubbard who predeceased him in 2013.

He was a graduate of Randolph High School Class of 1971. He was a graduate of the University of West Virginia, where he played football and received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering.

Mr. Hubbard started his career at Groves International as a surveyor. He loved construction and working outside, and built his first home himself. His work ethic, leadership and abilities lead to a series for promotions. He worked throughout his life on increasingly larger projects such as airports, chemical and nuclear facilities. At the time of his retirement in 2015, he was President and Chief Operating Officer at Rust Nuclear Constructors in Katy, TX.

Mike was a leader in both his career and personal life. He was a people person and it would be difficult to think of anyone who didn’t like Mike. He was honest, loyal, exceptionally generous, and loads of fun to be with. He was an avid sportsman and outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing and knew how to cook anything he brought in. He was bright and brave, bold and beautiful.
