Hubert L. Pickett, 86, of Chattanooga, TN, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, May 10, 2021.

A lifelong resident of the Chattanooga area, he was the son of the late James H. and Edna May Pickett and was preceded in death by his loving wife of 53 years, Pat Pickett.

Hubert was a faithful and devoted follower of Christ. He was a veteran having served in the U.S. Air Force. Hubert was a retired electrician for the City of Chattanooga and a member of the Local IBEW 175 for 67 years where he also taught in their apprenticeship program for over 15 years.

Survivors include his daughter, Kathy (Chris) Thurman and grandson, Matthew Thurman, all of Ooltewah. Some of his greatest joys came from bass fishing and spending time with his family.

The family would like to thank Hospice of Chattanooga for all their love and care.

Kathy, I am so sorry to hear of your Fathers passing. I always enjoyed spending time and fishing with him. One of our trips to Weiss Lake in Alabama stands out in my mind some 30 plus years later. This is the only night this week that I close the store so I will not be able to attend his visitation but please know that you, Chris and Matthew are in my prayers.
