Raymond Marshall Huebner, 87

SIERRA VISTA — Raymond Marshall Huebner, 87, longtime resident of Sierra Vista, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017 surrounded by the love of his family and the compassionate attention of his caregivers.

Marshall was born, one of three children on Thursday, Sept. 19, 1929 to Raymond Hughes and Della J. Huebner in Tucson, Arizona. He grew up and shared many fond memories of childhood in Tucson, attending both of the high schools there at the time. Marshall furthered his education obtaining a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona and a Master’s Degree in the same from Brigham Young University.

Marshall proudly served his country by joining the Army in 1953, utilizing his skills and knowledge of engineering and gaining many experiences across the United States. He obtained his private pilot’s license, enjoyed flying, skiing and hiking on his days off. He then took civil service positions that allowed him to live in Spain and Iran. While abroad he especially enjoyed traveling, folk dancing, international music and photography, visiting many foreign countries and sampling their cuisine. Marshall then returned to Tucson where he met the love of life, Janet Ruth (McCary). The two were married in Mesa, Arizona in 1977. Together they moved to Sierra Vista to settle down and raise a family. Marshall worked again in Civil Service on Ft. Huachuca and then, after retiring, he enjoyed working many years at Ace Hardware. He actively participated in the Cochise County Master Gardeners, Cochise Amateur Radio Association (CARA), College of Engineering Alumni, and spent many hours in church service.

Marshall and Janet welcomed two children to their family, Katherine Ruth (Billy) Seamans and Karl Marshall (Stacy) Huebner. Marshall happily became “Grandpa” and adored his grandchildren: Carson B. Seamans, Caroline A. Seamans, Hazel I. Huebner, Tait M. Huebner and Carianne E. Seamans. He will be dearly missed by his wife, children, grandchildren, sister Margaret (Bert) Walsmann, nephews, nieces, and close cousin James Huebner. He is, however, lovingly reunited with his parents, adopted sister M. Mildred Miller (Bud) Belding, sister in law, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
