Phillip L. Hubbard
July 9,1939 - March 26, 2021
Phil passed Friday March 26th at home.
Phil was the third son born July 9, 1936 to Edith (Thaxter) and Barton Hubbard.
He graduated from Peekskill Military Academy in 1954. He was Honorably Discharged from the Air Force Reserve – January 31, 1963.
He gave 25 years of public service to the City of White Plains as a Firefighter. He was an arborist in lower New York for many years. Phil found a great passion in cultivating orchids. Later in “retirement” he had started a business as an antiques collector/seller in Sebring Florida. Wherever he was he’d enjoy engaging folk in conversation from botany and antiques to many personal anecdotes.
He is predeceased by his mother Edith and father Barton Drew Hubbard and an older brother Stanley.
Surviving Phil are his brother Eugene, wife Linda (Rich), his children Susan (Clyde) Gordon of Sleepy Hollow N.Y. and Phillip (Yukiko Otsu) L. Hubbard Jr. of Suwanee, GA. He enjoyed the love of his grandchildren Rachel (Josh) Fontenault, Michelle (Raphael) Ramirez, Hannah and Alexander Hubbard along with 8 great grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
