|Eugene Norman Hubbard
05/09/1927 - 04/26/2022
Eugene Norman Hubbard was born in Quiogue across the street from where he lived for sixty-eight years in the house he built. He is survived by five of his six children, seven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Sadly, he was predeceased by his wife, Margery, daughter Linda, daughter-in-law Rose, and grandson Norman. Visitation will be at Werner Rothwell Funeral Home, Mill Road, WHB on Friday, April 29th, from 1 pm to 4 pm with a private interment afterwards.
Eugene grew up hunting and fishing in the area, seeing it change from a slow-moving beach community to its current iteration of resort destination. He wandered in the woods on the way home from school during the '38 Hurricane, he worked his own commercial ocean fishing boat, then turned to the bay for his living. He and his father and brother owned the Swordfish Beach Club for over 20 years.
Many people have many stories about Eugene Hubbard, the boy and the man. He saved countless lives from drowning, served his country during WWII in the Pacific theater, and carried on with a way of life taught to him by his father and his father's fathers.
Instead of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Salvation Army, who were on hand in Norfolk with donuts at Eugene's Navy service discharge.
