Funeral services for Gene Leo Hubley, 87, of Many were held October 1 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church with Father Duane Trombetta officiating. Burial followed in the St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery. Gene was born on Sunday, July 5, 1931 in Many to Winnie Virginia Davis and Cleve Julian Hubley, and passed away Thursday September 27, 2018 in Coushatta. Gene made the United States Navy his career. He was a Petty Officer First Class and served during the Vietnam era working on helicopters, planes, etc. on the ships. After retirement, he came back to his hometown of Many to care for his mother. He had various jobs and working with the SARC clients was very special to him. Another special “job” was caring for his sister, Lynna, upon her return from California. He was a loyal parishioner at St. John’s and was active with the Men’s Club helping whenever and wherever he could. He enjoyed playing the piano at the Nursing Home as long as he was able and was a favorite with the residents. Thanks to all those that helped getting him to and from Mass as his health declined. A special thanks goes to the citizens and proprietors of the businesses around Many that went out of their way to help Gene remain independent in his twilight years. The kind deeds of putting gas in the car, carrying out the groceries, help with his banking, picking him when he fell in his yard, and the list goes on and on were so appreciated. He will be missed. He was preceded in death by his parents, Cleve and Winnie Hubley; sisters, Freda Guidry, Hazel Yarbrough, Helen Dowden and Winfred Duke; and brothers, C. J. Hubley, Charles Hubley, Grover Cleveland Hubley, Jack Hubley, and Walter Earl Hubley. He is survived by his sisters, Anna Frances Grembowiec and husband, John, of Houston, Texas, Beverly Jo Miller of Linden, Texas, and Lynna Hubley of Many; along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. Pallbearers were David Hubley, Jim Hubley, Grover Hubley, Alan Grembowiec, Carl Miller, Walker Duke, Tommy LeCroy, Todd Diviney, Marc, Hackstedt, and Rusty Werline. Honorary pallbearers were Leroy Page and John Gallagher. The family would also like to extend thanks to Leroy Page, Connie Garner, Sonny Holden, Liz Reagan, and Tan. These caregivers were loved and appreciated by Gene and the family. Also, thanks go to the nurses at Lagniappe and the staff at the Council on Aging for their care and attention. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in his memory to St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery or a charity of your choice.
