Terrence C. Hubbard known to his many friends as Terry, passed away on Sunday morning, January 28, 2018, in Corpus Christi, Texas, from complications caused by Parkinson's Disease and the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. He was 80 years old. His wife, Kathy (Katherine) was by his side. They were married for 49 years. Terry was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle and grandpa.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Jesse Schoch, his father, Ronald A. Hubbard, his mother, Margaret Hubbard, and his older sister, Theone Cutler. In addition to his wife, Kathy, he is survived by his son, Jeff (Dee) and granddaughters, Casey Jo and Karley Rae all of Hayden, Idaho; his sister, Karen Berglund (Dave) of Sheboygan, Wisconsin; his brother-in-law, Kay D. Cutler of Claremont, South Dakota; his foster brother, Kenneth R. Johnson; a favorite niece, Sandy of Palm Bay, Florida, numerous other nieces and nephews.

A native of Groton, South Dakota, Terry was born October 4, 1937. He graduated from Groton High School, where he participated in sports and excelled in academics. He attended one year at Northern State Teachers' College in Aberdeen, South Dakota, before being appointed to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He graduated with the Class of 1960.

While in the U.S. Navy, Terry served on the heavy cruiser USS ROCHESTER for one year and then attended Submarine School and nuclear power training. He served on the nuclear submarines USS SWORDFISH and USS BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, followed by shore duty tours at the Antisubmarine Warfare Force HQ and the Submarine Tactical Training Facility at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. As a civilian, Terry worked for an engineering firm, Tetra Tech Inc. based in Pasadena, California. There he did operations research for the Navy at Pearl Harbor. He left to co-found another engineering firm, Omni Analysis, Inc., in San Diego, California, where he served as executive vice president.

In Hawaii, Terry developed an interest in model railroading, constructing, elaborate, true-to-life layouts for his collection of N-scale model trains. He also became a marathon runner completing several marathons in Hawaii and San Diego, California. Retiring to Austin, Texas, he and Kathy purchased a custom picture framing business and opened an art gallery next door. When they sold that business they moved to Rockport, Texas. In Rockport, Terry discovered kayaking, wade fishing and fishing for redfish. When he wasn't fishing, he enjoyed woodworking in his garage shop where he continued his interest in model railroading. In addition, he found time to remodel the several homes he and Kathy owned during their years in Rockport.

Missing his two granddaughters who lived far away, Terry volunteered with the Odyssey After School Enrichment Program in Rockport. There he introduced the boys and girls to model railroading, taught them to play chess and helped with math homework. He started the Odyssey Pool Sharks teaching the kids to play pool while subtlety introducing concepts of geometry. He served on the Odyssey Board of Directors and was presented the first Volunteer of the Year Award 2007-2008, for his commitment to the then new program.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Ronald Bruce in Rockport for his medical care and guidance through the years. Much appreciation also goes to Kindred Hospice and to the entire staff at Holmgreen Center at Trinity Towers in Corpus Christi for the compassionate care of Terry in his final days. Donations to honor Terry's life may be made to the Odyssey After School Enrichment program in Rockport, Texas, P.O. Box 237, Rockport, Texas 78381 or or to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, ( or to a charity of your choice. There will be one final journey when Terry's ashes are scattered at sea near a favorite fishing spot. I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7.
