William Hubert Obituary, Death- William Mack “Bill” Hubert passed away in a calm and peaceful manner at the Center at the Waterfront on June 18, 2023.
He was surrounded by his family, friends, and daughters who were members of the Bal-A-Vis-X organization at the time of his passing. There was Bill’s son, Keil Hubert, who was from Bedford, Texas; his daughter, Katelyn “Kate” Hubert Walsh, who was from Olympia, Washington; his wife, Barbara; his brother-in-law, Fred Lichtenfelt; and three of Bill’s many daughters from BAVX: Tiffany, who was from Kansas, Allegra, who was from California, and Jane, who was from Scotland.
These individuals were all standing at his side. Before Bill Hubert was born, both of his parents, Sie and Almeda Hubert, as well as his older brother Richard Hubert, had already departed away. The joyous couple Bill and Barb were able to celebrate the 57th year of their marriage on June 12 of this year, which was also the date of their wedding anniversary. After having spent the previous 39 years teaching children in Michigan and Kansas, Bill made the decision to make the most of his retirement years by continuing to educate others, educating himself, reading, writing, exercising, loving, laughing, and contributing to people around him.
After all, he had spent the previous 39 years teaching kids in Michigan and Kansas. The memorial service and celebration of life that will be held in Bill’s honor have been scheduled for the middle of the month of July. Those who wish to pay tribute to Bill by honoring his memory are encouraged to give to charitable causes, such as those supported by the Assistance League of Wichita, the Authors in Schools program sponsored by Watermark Books and Café, or the Kansas Food Bank. Please consider making a contribution in Bill’s name.
This follows Bill’s conviction that everyone should conduct themselves in accordance with the Golden Rule. A more detailed obituary will be printed in the July issue of The Wichita Eagle, and it will also be made available on the website of Downing & Lahey Mortuary, which can be accessed at www.dlwichita.com. This will provide information on how a gift can be made to one of these organizations and will contain that information.
