Jimmy Roland Hubbard

September 26, 1948 – October 29, 2020

Jim Hubbard was born in Parkin, AR to William Harris Hubbard and Kathleen Joan Peters. He grew up in the Memphis area, then attended the College of the Ozarks and later the University of Arkansas where he obtained his degree in engineering. He has worked as an electrical engineer for Entergy over 40 years. He married Cindi Murphy on January 5, 1999, and they reside in Conway, AR where Jim has been an active community member and is loved by many.

Jim will be forever loved and remembered by his devoted wife of 21 years, Cindi Hubbard, and his children Jimmy Hubbard (Ellen), Billy Hubbard (Rachel), Melissa Hurst, Chris Hubbard, Tyler Kalahiki, Matthew Hubbard, and Gracie Hubbard and grandchildren Emily Hurst, Garland Hurst, Bronley Hubbard, Brooklyn Hubbard, and Ethan Hubbard, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cherished friends. Jim is survived by his siblings, Sonny Hubbard, Billy Hubbard (Pam), and Dean Erwin. He was preceded in death by his sister Barbara Hubbard Erwin.

We will miss him every day, especially when we are on the golf course, watching a Razorback game, or playing basketball in the driveway. Jim has gone by many titles – husband, dad, grandpa, friend, and coach. But the title that means the most to him, the one that has guided him through his life, is this – Christ follower. We take comfort in knowing that he is now healed and strolling the streets of gold with his King.

Memorials may be made to Second Chance Youth Ranch, a foster care ministry, at www.2cyr.org. Service will be held on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 1:00pm at Second Baptist Church in Conway, Arkansas; all are welcome to attend. The family will be available for visitation following the service until 3:30pm; there will be a graveside service after that for immediate family.

Arrangements entrusted to Griffin Leggett Conway Funeral Home Conway, AR. Please leave condolences for the family at www.griffinleggettconway.com

Jimmy Roland Hubbard is my brother. I hold him in high esteem. Jimmy was a man of high integrity, loyalty and perseverance. Growing up I remember how he would use sports as a way to teach his little brother how to be strong, committed and a team player. He was a man of few words but if you took the time to watch him it was obvious he cared greatly for family, country and God. He had a special relationship with our sister, Barbara Joanne. There are many impacting events in life that we have no control over but how we respond to them determines our future. Jimmy responded to early life events with a tenacity to succeed where many would have been defeated. He became an electrical engineer (no easy feat), raised and supported two generations of sons and daughters. I love and respect my brother Jimmy Roland Hubbard and trust that he is in the arms of our savior even now.
