Rex Grant Hubbell

Oct. 5, 1997 – Nov. 8, 2021

Rex Grant Hubbell, 24, was called home to our heavenly Father on November 8, 2021, in Kettle Falls, Washington. Grant was born on October 5, 1997, in Clackamas, Oregon, the son of Bruce Grant and Karla May (Kuhle) Hubbell.

Grant’s early years were shared with his family in Gresham, Oregon. They moved to Nine Mile, Washington, when he was 5 and there, he completed kindergarten and first grade. Grant’s second grade year began in Colville, Washington, and there, he continued through the third grade. Grant made a final move to Ephrata, Washington, in 2007. Grant finished high school in Ephrata and graduated with the class of 2016. 

On November 28, 2016, Grant enlisted in the United States Marine Corp. He served four years as a welder and fabricator, and on December 1, 2020, he finished his enlistment at Camp Pendleton as Lance Corporal. Grant was home on Christmas Eve 2020 in time to share the holidays with family. After several months, Grant returned to Colville area, where he resided with his grandparents, Fran and Carol Kuhle, in Kettle Falls. He had recently begun work at Colmac Coil in Colville as a welder. 

During his high school years, Grant enjoyed running cross-country and track on the school team. He grew up hunting, fishing, camping and enjoying the outdoors with family. Grant enjoyed improving his shooting skills and expanding his knowledge about firearms. He enjoyed playing X-Box and always looked forward to the new editions of the games. 

Grant had a growing interest in history, which led to reading and watching many documentaries of past events and people. His intellect was one of analytics, and he worked at his own pace to make sense of the information, application and circumstances that surrounded him. His wisdom was offered and often observed through his advanced vocabulary and in-depth discussions. There was nothing he liked better than an engaging conversation on historical events, firearms or government. Grant studied the teachings of the Bible and found comfort with understanding God’s grace and love.

Those closest to Grant knew that he had a tender heart and had a compassion for those less fortunate. He had a love for our country, was very patriotic and showed admiration and respect for our veterans. Grant will be forever loved and missed and always remembered in our hearts. 

He was preceded in death by a brother, Jaycob Weaver.

Grant is survived by his mother, Karla, and Jim Weaver of Ephrata; father Bruce Hubbell of Lovell; siblings Colton Hubbell of Bremerton, Washington, Josh (Rachel) Weaver and their children Liam, Ellie and Jayce of Osborne, Idaho, Allyson Weaver of Gilbert, Arizona, and Ashtyn Weaver of Spokane; grandparents Rex and Betty Hubbell of Lovell, Fran and Carol Kuhle of Kettle Falls and Bill and Shirley Weaver of Ephrata; and a host of extended family. 

A gathering of family and friends was held in remembrance of Rex on December 4, 2021. Please visit the online memorial and sign the guestbook or leave a note for the family at Danekas Funeral Chapel and Crematory was entrusted with the arrangements.
