CAM­BRIDGE — Les­lie Mor­ri­son “Mor­rie” Hubbard, 62, of Cam­bridge, passed away Fri­day, July 22, 2016, at UMSMC at Dorch­ester.

Born Jan. 15, 1954, Mor­rie was the son of the late Mary Pauline Stairs and Charles Mor­ri­son “Tex” Hubbard. He at­tended the lo­cal schools in Cam­bridge. En­list­ing in the U.S. Air Force, Mor­rie proudly served his coun­try with honor. He was hon­or­ably dis­charged in Dec. 1973.

Re­turn­ing to Cam­bridge, Mor­rie be­gan dat­ing and then mar­ry­ing his sweet­heart, the for­mer Vickie Wheat­ley. To­gether they were blessed with a son and en­joyed 41 years of mar­riage.

For most of his work­ing ca­reer he was a welder. He had worked at Cam­bridge Sci­en­tific, Bev Tran, Cus­tom Weld­ing and Fab­ri­ca­tion and Camtec. Prior to his re­tire­ment,

due to his health, he was em­ployed with the Mu­nic­i­pal Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion. Mor­rie al­ways en­joyed fast cars. He al­ways thought he should have been a race car driver. He had a big car­ing heart for peo­ple and an­i­mals as well. He loved chil­dren and al­ways tried to help any in need. He couldn’t stand to see an­i­mals abused or lack­ing food. Of­ten you would see him tak­ing his dogs for a ride in the car, six dog heads stick­ing out the win­dows en­joy­ing the ride.

His green thumb for grow­ing beau­ti­ful flower gar­dens was some­thing passed on to him from his mother. He was known in his neigh­bor­hood

for his elab­o­rate Christ­mas light dis­plays. His would be the first up and last down each year.

Mor­rie loved his wife; he was so proud of his son and cher­ished his grand­chil­dren. He was a pa­triot to his coun­try. He was a friend to all, more like a brother to his clos­est friends and had found the peace and hap­pi­ness with his Lord. He will be missed by many but never for­got­ten.

Sur­viv­ing is his wife Vickie; son Kevin F. Hubbard and wife Lisa of Michi­gan; grand­chil­dren Skye and Lo­gan Hubbard; brother Owen Hughes and wife Geral­dine; sis­ters Phyl­lis Flow­ers, Carol Collins and husband El­win; brother in laws Ed­ward Wheat­ley Jr. and Wil­liam “Billy” Wheat­ley; sis­ter in laws Cindy Kukta, Deb­bie Lowe and Christine Greene; spe­cial long time friends Michael Rossy, Alan Sim­mons and Gary New­comb, along with nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.
