The light dimmed in our community last week. Bob Hubbell died.
For nine decades, Bob Hubbell had been a leader in the community: the baby saved by the doctor’s wife; the fire-keeper at school; the student-leader and Eagle Scout; the pillar of the community who helped lead the hospital, fire departments, Rotary, ambulance squad, and countless community organizations and events.
Robert Burr Hubbell, of the Kelly Corners homestead that bears his family name, died Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013 at Albany Medical Center.
