We give glory to God for the precious life of Hubert B. Parker (98) of Alexander City, who went to be with The Lord on March 3, 2019.

Hubert was a World War II Veteran having served in General Patten’s 3rd Army in the 90th Infantry Division. In 1975 he retired as a Rural Mail Carrier with the U.S. Post Office. He loved his family and was so very proud of each one. He liked to build, to farm, to invent, to fix things, to cook, to encourage and generally he just loved people!

Even though he will be greatly missed, what joy it is to know that he is with His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
