Hub was one of the smartest guys I ever worked with, as Jim Sifford used to say, "Mind like a beartrap", he never forgot a small detail. And, he was a lot of fun to be around. I'll never forget our 727 ground school at Braniff in Dallas, and later back in INT when Capt. Tadlock ordered us to teach the same course!
Hubbo, rest in peace.
