Johnny L. Hubbard, 89, passed away October 16, 2020 at Hearthstone Rehabilitation Center in Medford. Johnny was a Naval Korean War veteran where he served as a Master Cocksman/Pilot aboard the USS Montague (AKA-98). While stationed in Long Beach, California, he met the love of his life and future wife, Terry Wurtzel. After a short engagement, they married in October 1954 in Texas where Johnny was born and raised. After his service in the Navy, he accepted employment in the aviation field in Los Angeles, California, where he and Terry lived for over 35 years. During this time, they traveled the world and shared these experiences together. After his retirement, he and Terry moved to Medford, where they lived for the past 28 years. They attended Westminster Presbyterian Church and spent all of their time together. After nearly 66 years of marriage, Terry passed away in July of this year leaving Johnny heartbroken and missing her. He was the silent type to her out-going personality and during all their years together they were inseparable.
Johnny is preceded in death by his parents, John and Fannie Hubbard and his beloved wife, Terry. And as the headstone they picked out years ago reads, they are together again. He is survived by his sister-in-law, Geraldine Hubbard and 13 nieces and nephews. A viewing will be held on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 9:00 am at Perl Funeral Home, followed by a graveside burial service at 10:00 am at Siskiyou Memorial Park, conducted by Pastor Chris Ward.
The family would like to thank, Mitch & Naomi Seidman, Doug and Barbara Rush, the Westminster Church family and various other friends and neighbors who were always looking out for him, especially during Terry's illness and passing.
