Karry Hubbard

May 14, 1951 — September 5, 2016

Karry Scott Hubbard, 65, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2016, at his Roswell home after a long illness.

Scott was born to Thomas Hubbard and Joan Moore Hubbard on May 14, 1951 in Roswell, NM. He attended local schools, graduating from Roswell High School in 1969. He attended New Mexico State University and South Plains Junior College before joining the US Air Force in 1971. He was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana, where he served as a missile mechanic for six years prior to being honorably discharged in 1977.

After separating from the Air Force in 1977, Scott moved home to Roswell to pursue family business interests, fiberglass manufacturing and roustabout services, just to name a few. For most of his life, though, he worked as a carpenter because building and creating were his true passions.

The wilds of the American landscape always called to Scott. He was known among his many friends as a skilled hunter and fisherman, and he took every opportunity to pursue this hobby in his home state and in far flung places.

The proverbial gruff "mountain man" with a soft heart, Scott adored dogs and cats and other critters. At his encouragement, his family ran an ad hoc "Labrador rescue" at their home, taking in many dogs that had been abandoned or neglected. It was always a happy scene to arrive at Scott's home to the loud heralding of a pack of healthy Labradors.

With his wife Mary, Scott was an avid supporter of the Roswell arts scene, befriending and supporting dozens of Roswell's visiting artists in residence. Scott was artistic himself, designing and building a unique home for his family in Roswell, where he always received friends with a warm welcome and a cold one. He also created many lasting pieces of furniture for his own home and pieces for many friends. He loved cooking; he could often be found in the cook shack preparing meals for friends and family.

In addition to Mary, his wife of 35 years, Scott is survived by his children Carrie Smith of San Jon, NM; Tim Smith of Dallas, TX; Kelly Maria and husband, Alan Maria, Jr., of Terre Haute, IN; and Isaac Hubbard of Roswell, NM. A brother, Donald Hubbard and wife, Nancy, of Roswell; Many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews, and too many good friends to list, all of whom Scott felt so fortunate to have.

The family wishes to thank the folks in the Tuesday night group, as well as Gentiva Hospice and the Comfort Keepers staff for the special care they provided.

No funeral services are planned. A private memorial to celebrate Scott's life will be announced to friends and family.
