Alexander Hubb


Mr. Alexander Hubb, 77, of Chincoteague Island, passed away Sunday, Nov. 27, 2022, surrounded by his family. Born on May 30, 1945, in the Salvation Army Home and Hospital for Unwed Mothers in Philadelphia, he was adopted by William and Mildred Hubb and lived in Doylestown, Pa. He graduated in 1963 from Central Bucks High School and then received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Rider University.
He married the love of his life, Kathleen Marie Peyser, on their joint birthday of May 30, 1967. Surviving him other than his wife, Kathy, are his children: Randy, wife Heather, daughters Mackenzie and Samantha, of York, Pa.; Rick, wife Melissa, children Kathy, Ruth, and Alec, of Chincoteague; Gary, wife Cristina, and grandchild on the way, of Los Angeles; and Lexi, and husband Justin, of Chincoteague. 
Alex and family lived in York, where he worked for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company as an agent for 32 years before retiring to Chincoteague in 2011. Alex remained very busy as he became involved with the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance. In 2014, he took on the small local farmers market when it moved to the CCA field. Forever the salesman, Alex enjoyed recruiting new vendors and artists, building relationships with loyal vendors, and advocating for small business and local musicians. The number of vendors exploded over the last two years when the Chincoteague Island Farmers and Artisans Market was established. Alex’s greatest joy while serving as market manager was promoting the market and the musicians who played there.
Thank you to the CCA and Chincoteague community for their kindness and generosity bestowed to the Hubb family over the past year.
A Celebration of Life will take place Friday, Dec. 2, 2022, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Salyer Funeral Home. The sharing of memories begins at 6 p.m.

Services were entrusted to Salyer Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc., 6327 Church St., Chincoteague Island, VA 23336.
