Fred Hubert Obituary

Fred Thomas Hubert passed away on January 30, 2024 at the age of 73 after a short and intense battle with cancer while at home with his wife, Pegge Hubert, by his side. 

 

Fred was born on December 27, 1950 to Arthur and Lucille Hubert in Hendersonville. He was a proud graduate of Hendersonville High School in 1968 and then continued his education at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. It was during this time that Fred experienced such love and gratitude for the university that he became enthralled with the magic of being a Tar Heel. Throughout the years, he loved spending time attending basketball and football games and sharing this passion with his family. If you know Fred, then it’s no surprise to learn that a picture of Dean Smith hung above his fireplace for over thirty years. 

 

Not only did he love his Tar Heels, but he also had a deep passion for the city of New Orleans. He found ways to encompass the culture of New Orleans into his life by attending Mardi Gras festivities for twenty five years in a row. The atmosphere he experienced through the live music, parades, and street performers allowed him to discover an eccentric side of himself. He continued to explore street festivals and music in downtown Asheville, which led to his weekly attendance playing in the drum circle for several years. 

 

Fred spent most of his career in the sales industry. He returned from Chapel Hill and began working in pharmaceutical sales, which then led him to a longstanding career as a car salesman. He made many meaningful connections with members of the Hendersonville community while selling cars, and he cherished these relationships years after he retired. Upon retirement from sales, Fred joined the staff at Hendersonville High School, which was where he worked until his passing. The students and faculty at the school truly became his “Bearcat Family”, and they made his time working there feel extraordinarily meaningful. Fred always had such a strong work ethic, and he was so proud to be able to give back to his community and his alma mater. 

 

Fred was preceded in death by his first wife, Elliott Streetman Hubert, his parents, Arthur Hubert and Lucille Lovingood, and his stepfather, Jack Lovingood.

 

He was survived by his wife, Pegge Hubert, his four children, Wimberly Hubert, Lauren and her husband Jeff Wilkins, Alexis Hubert, and Kayleigh Hubert, his four grandchildren, Trinity Hubert, Thomas Hubert, Bradyn Hubert, and Jacob Wilkins, his two great-grandchildren, Kingston Roy and Teigan Hubert, his brother and wife, Roy and Karen Hubert, and his stepbrother and wife, Phil and Peggy Lovingood. 

 

Fred spent his life spreading warmth and kindness, and he made such a powerful impact on so many people. He would want everyone to cherish these moments and cultivate kindness into their own daily lives to continue spreading joy to others. He was truly an unforgettable man.
