Arlie Hubbard

Obituary of Arlie Eugene Hubbard

Arlie Eugene Hubbard, age 79, late of San Benito, Texas, and a long time Joliet resident, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 30, 2022 at the home of his brother in Joliet.

Born June 13, 1943 in Herrin, IL, he was the son of the late Arlie and Arietta (Grounds) Hubbard.   Arlie had a successful career as an iron worker, plant manager and construction supervisor for several companies including General Dynamics.  He was a proud member of Iron Workers Local #1 of Chicago, and a former member of the Laborers Union.

Arlie was a loving and devoted father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.  He was a man of faith who loved his God and his church, the First Baptist Church of Combes, TX.  He was an avid Chicago Bears fan, and also loved camping, fishing, boating, and spending time with his grandchildren.  His greatest love of all, however, was his family.

Arlie is survived by his four children, Cathy (Fred Mitchell) Hubbard of Joliet, Jane (Dan) Condreay of Belton, TX, Jeff (Donna) Hubbard of Columbia, TN, and Daniel Hubbard of Portland, OR; eight grandchildren, Rebecca (Patrick) Daley, Matthew (Elizabeth) Condreay, Sarah (Michael) Kotlarczyk, Stephanie Hubbard, Lindsey Hubbard, Amy (Patrick) Feiten, Nicholas Hubbard and Abbye Hubbard; two great-grandchildren, Griffin and Grant Condreay; his brothers and sisters, Barbara (Larry) Burns of Chicago, Ginger Nurczyk of Oswego, Michael (Kathy) Hubbard of Herrin, and Mitchell (Debbie) Hubbard of Joliet; many nieces and nephews; his dear friend, Brenda Kirman of Harlingen, TX; and his beloved canine companion, Peanut.

He is preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Vicky English and Kimbra Thompson; two brothers, James Hubbard, and Terry Hubbard, at birth; and his former wife, Judith (Grant) Hubbard.

Cremation rites will be accorded and memorial services with burial will be at a later date.
