Thomas Edwin Hubbard, Jr.

January 3, 1947 - October 21, 2019

With profound sadness his family announces his sudden passing on October 21, 2019. A loving husband, father, and grandfather, co-worker, and volunteer passed away peacefully at the age of 72. Born in Evanston, IL, Tom married his college sweetheart, Sandra, and began a beautiful family life in Peoria, IL. He worked passionately as a professional photographer in various capacities throughout his life. He began with his own photography lab and studio, progressed to a position as Director of the Photo Lab at Caterpillar in Peoria, before finally moving to New York to become Director of the Photo Lab at Time-Life. Tom and his family arrived in scenic Vancouver, WA thirteen years ago to work for Hewlett-Packard. Always a student of his endeavors, Tom enjoyed learning the latest in photo technology, and to his family’s dismay, home upgrades and repairs. For Tom, it wasn’t good enough that something worked, he had to improve it. After retirement he continued his passion by volunteering his time with the lighting department at the Magenta Theater in downtown Vancouver. Always an avid spectator of sports he especially loved the softball games of his daughter, Katy.

Tom will be greatly missed by his most photographed subjects: his loving wife, Sandy; his father, Thomas; his sister Terri; his children, Krista, Kim, Thomas, Tyler, Katy; and grandchildren, Emma, Elle, Bailey and Nathan. We will miss his humor and his constant request to “Say cheese!”

The Memorial was a private gathering held at the Magenta Theater to celebrate Tom’s life. Please send donations in lieu of flowers to Magenta Theater, Vancouver, WA.
