Brent Lee Hubbs

January 29, 1940April 6, 2019

Brent Lee Hubbs was born January 29, 1940 in Schenectady, NY to Roland E. and Gladys M. Hubbs. He passed away at his home, in Sevierville, TN on April 6, 2019 after a long illness. He was a workaholic and made a name for himself in his field and was a member of the Turbine Erectors Hall of Fame. His work in power plants took him across the country and world, including Rome, GA, where he met the love of his life, Elisa, and to Wyoming, where he spent much of his time living under the Tetons. He was a bit of a solitary man, but was someone who could be called upon to troubleshoot problems be it at his job or in life. He always did what he could to help others. He loved the mountains, the beaches of Monterey, CA, NASCAR, live music at places like The Stagecoach Bar where he would order vodka and Diet Coke, often referred to by bartenders as a “yuck”. He is survived by his wife Elisa M. (Colello) Hubbs, his daughter Samantha, of New Orleans, LA, and son Tony, who lives in Jackson Hole, WY with his beloved grandchildren, Ally and Anthony; also, his brother Bruce Hubbs and wife, Catherine, of Saratoga, New York. Memorial services will be held Thursday April 11th, 7 PM at Seymour Heights Christian Church, in the student hall. There will also be a gathering at his beloved Silver Dollar Bar at The Wort Hotel in Jackson, WY, at an undetermined date. He will be missed.

40 years of memories are too hard to put into words. Suffice it to say, he was a man of honor. Allways there to help and mentor us younger pups to become better turbine engineers. I know my life is better for having known him . A true friend. Ornery yes but we wouldn't have had him any other way. Miss you my friend.

I am so sorry to hear about Brent's passing. Seems just yesterday that I was in my garage struggling to drill holes in a steam turbine bucket for mounting on his GE "Rocky Mountain Mafia" retirement plaque...I don't think I ever saw Brent again after he left GE, but we did communicate via email and a few phone calls over the years. Brent could be so cantankerous to work with at times, but he and I had the utmost respect for each other. I will miss him!
