He will also be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and colleagues. Hubert was a highly regarded and devoted employee of General Dynamics for 36 years. In his spare time he enjoyed helping people by volunteering in many organizations within the Ottawa area. He will be remembered for his love of cooking, generosity and selfless nature who left a positive impression on all those he encountered.
