Don Allen Hubbard

March 09, 1938 - March 24, 2023


Don A. Hubbard, 85, of Ferndale, WA passed to Glory on March 24, 2023, after a brief illness. He was born March 9, 1938, in Newport, WA to Lester and Leona Hubbard. His first 12 years were spent in Coulee Dam, WA where his father worked on Grand Coulee Dam as a crane operator.

Don’s next several school years were near the McNary Dam in Umatilla, OR, graduating in a class of 18 in 1956. Shortly after his graduation, Don and an Umatilla buddy joined the Air Force and served for five years. He spent the last two years of his hitch in Japan and Korea.

After his discharge in 1961, Don joined his family in The Dalles, OR. It was there he met and married Ann, the love of his life. They spent six years in The Dalles before moving to Whatcom County where he started his new employment with Intalco Aluminum. Don was a machinist for the first 15 years with Intalco, and was then moved to the planning department where he spent another 15 years. He planned and scheduled the maintenance work, and also wrote safety procedures for the plant.

Church was a very important part of Don’s life. He loved being with his First Baptist Church family, and participating in whatever was going on. He enjoyed volunteering his time at the church, putting all his maintenance skills to work in the upkeep of the church building. He enjoyed the coffee time after the Sunday morning service and the fellowship with the others there (especially if there were chocolate snacks involved).

After retirement, Don and Ann enjoyed traveling, RV’ing, and spending fun time with their kids and grandkids. He spent nine years in a volunteer position with the Ferndale Police Department’s S.C.O.P.E. Program (Senior Citizens On Patrol Enhancement) and became their scheduler.

Don is survived by his wife of 61 years, Ann; sons Scott and Dave (Jenny); daughter Alison (Jeff); seven grandkids and two great-grand kids who will sorely miss their “Papa”.

Don’s memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at 2:00 P.M. at Ferndale First Baptist Church, corner of Washington Street and Vista Drive, Ferndale, WA. Any donations may be made to the Ferndale First Baptist Memorial Fund FBC – (
