“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)

It is with love and a deep sense of your loss that we, the Members of the Hubbard Family Circle do acknowledge the passing of our beloved family member, LEWIS HUBBARD, who departed this life on April 9, 2018.
LEWIS HUBBARD is a 4th generation descendant of the Hubbard Family through Lena Hubbard Guy (his mother), Collie Hubbard (his grandmother) and Sandy Hubbard (his great grandfather).  LEWIS was a beloved father, grandfather, cousin, neighbor, and friend.  LEWIS was committed to family connections and within the Hubbard Family, LEWIS had more family than He could count across the United States. The Hubbard Family looked forward to seeing LEWIS at the Annual Hubbard Family Reunion and We always said, “That’s our “COUSIN” from Detroit!! Being one of the Elder Cousins, he was affectionally called “Uncle Lewis”, by the 5th generation of the Hubbard Family!  We thank God for each moment that we have had to fellowship with LEWIS down through the years.  We come together today to celebrate his life and honor his memory as a very special part of our Hubbard family and all that LEWIS meant to us.  We love him and We will miss him, but we’re grateful that he is resting now in the Kingdom of God!

In the fellowship of this family and above all, the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we extend a loving hand of sympathy and understanding.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.” (Revelation 21:4 KJV)

Lamonte Hampton
Lamonte Hampton

Lamonte is one of 13 innovators being recognized in the Baltimore Social Innovation Journal. To give a short brief on our Hubbard Family member. When Lamonte was 17, he left Spanish Harlem for the U.S. Marine Corps. For the next four years, Mr. Hampton served in the Philippines, Guam and Japan. Then one day, he was honorably discharged--with zero warning. “ Having no clue how to write a resume or create a budget, no concept of how to access the resources available to him as a veteran. He felt totally lost,” as he recalls.

Lamonte wants to help homeless vets access life-changing services in an RV decked out with wifi, docking stations, a fully stocked kitchen and bathroom, and a lounge where families can visit their loved ones in a safe, comfortable setting instead of meeting on the street.

Look for more of his story in the upcoming issue on behalf of the  
Warnock Foundation, a Non-Profit Organization.

Lamonte, on behalf of the Hubbard Family Circle, We Salute You.
Excellent....Good Job My Brother.
