HUBICK, Ralph Stanley

HUBICK, Ralph Stanley

October 18, 1936-June 23, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce that husband, father, and grandfather, Ralph Stanley Hubick, passed away with family by his side after a courageous struggle with cancer.
He is now at peace...safe in the arms of Jesus.

He will be lovingly remembered by Shirley, his wife of 59 years; his daughters Lynn (Mike), Lorraine (Eric) and Laurel (Rob) and son Darrell (Shannon); ten grandchildren, of whom he was so proud: Cory (Nikki), Jennifer (Ed), Chelsey (Mike), Jodi (Trevor), Zachary, Shayla (Jared), Jamie (Pete), Kelsey (Andreas), Colin and Taylor; six great grandchildren: William, Cadance, Michael, Kaylee, Leuwin and Everly; six siblings: Alan (Pauline), Jason (Nancy), Carol, Dianne (Al), Brenda and Rick (Sherry); sister-in-law Vi; and many nephews and nieces. He is predeceased by his parents George and Evelyn Hubick, brother Gerry and sister Sandie.

Dad was born in Southey, Saskatchewan, the second oldest child of nine. He was raised in many towns around Alberta, till they settled in Edmonton. Dad left home after school to work as an Air Craft Equipment Technician in the Air Force in Quebec. He met and married the love of his life, Shirley Lynn and a few years later, built a home on an acreage in Sherwood Park, Alberta, where they raised their four children.

They moved west to Kelowna in 1974. Dad made a career in accounting which he loved; he kept using his skills, even after retiring in April 2006. He was honoured to volunteer on many boards as treasurer: Building Healthy Families, where he volunteered for 25 years, Westbank Boys and Girls Club, Rotary Club in Westbank, where he was also the President for one year, various churches which he attended, Sun Village where he lived and Kelowna Lawn Bowling Club. He was also a volunteer at Bibles for Missions Thrift Store and Trinity Baptist Church.

    Shirley and family, Mr. Hubick you surely will be at the right hand of Jesus for your goodness and faith and volunteering for humanity. We are so proud that he was able to see and hold his newest great granddaughter Everly before he went to see the Lord. We will miss your character and score keeping at cards at Darrell & Shannon's.

    I am very sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. I met him many years ago in the accounting field when he served the company I worked for. I liked and respected him very much. He was honest, kind and compassionate. May he rest in peace until Jesus calls him to his eternal home. God bless and comfort Ralph's family and grant them His peace.

    My heart and my prayers go out to Shirley and the children. I have known Ralph for many years, and he became more like a brother than just a friend. I must say that I am saddened by Ralph's passing, yet rejoice with the knowledge that as a believer in Jesus as Lord and Savior, Ralph is home with the Lord he loved.
    Bill Heywood.
