I served in the armed forces.
Roy Raymond Hubbard left this Earth on November 14, 2022, after almost 94 trips around the Sun. Raymond was born in Perry County, AR, to Audie and Bertha Hubbard on December 7, 1928. Raymond had four brothers that preceded his death. Raymond was also preceded in death by his wife Mattie Louise Hubbard. Raymond is survived by his daughter Karen Hubbard Sivils and two grandchildren Sophia Anne Sivils and Sydney Rae Sivils-Light and her husband Blaine Light. Raymond devoted much of his life to the service of others. He served in the Air Force in Germany during the Korean Conflict where he learned to be a baker by necessity. When Raymond was asked if he know how to bake and he responded with a resolute ''yes'' since he figured it was a better job than being on the front line. He served as a city councilman for 37 years where he led the effort to upgrade the city's wastewater system and extension of water lines to all city residents. He served as the coordinator for the South Arkansas Office of Emergency services for over 20 years. In this role Raymond received phone calls at all hours of the night to search for lost hunters and drag waterways for drowning victims. Perhaps he is best known for providing pest control services to the community as the manager of the Monticello branch of Curry's Termite and Pest Control for 73 years. Raymond was a lifelong member of the Monticello Bass Club where he pursued his passion of largemouth bass fishing. Raymond knew all the honey holes in the Arkansas River at Pendleton where he routinely won or placed in tournaments. Raymond had a wicked sense of humor that he used to make everyone laugh especially during his early morning visits to the donut shop. Raymond lived a purposeful life that improved the lives of others and made everyone who knew him smile. A visitation will be held Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at Stephenson-Dearman from 1:30-2:00 pm and funeral services will be held beginning at 2:00 pm. Interment ceremonies will take place at Oakland Cemetery immediately after funeral services. Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers can be sent to the Monticello Senior Citizens Center located at 203 Henley in Monticello, AR.

    Karen April,

    So many memories of my past include you, Raymond and Lou Lou. I have watched you over the last 14 years caring for your parents while putting your own life on hold to be in Monticello. You have done an amazing job and have been a wonderful daughter. I know that Lou Lou was waiting on him at the pearly gates and they are both now at peace. I am here for you. Love you, Marijune
