John David Hubbard

December 18, 1951 ~ February 8, 2019 (age 67)


John D Hubbard passed away February 8th, 2019 following respiratory complications. He leaves behind long time friends John and Jen Maley, Jim and Kathy Anderson who truly stuck by his side. Johns accomplishments with Harley Davidson Motorcycles are undeniable: able to scale 70 lbs off a stock bike and add 100 HP, replace every nut and bolt with hand polished stainless steel and a custom paint job, all done in his own shop. His last creation propelled his bike into the 2018 Easy Rider exhibit in Columbus and was noted by famous builders globally. John had a generous heart. He helped those in need and lovingly took any stray cats or dogs into his home. Special thanks to: every one at Freedom Harley Davidson in Canton, whom he was so fond of, the Heartland Hospice team and Arbor of Streetsboro, both of which went above and beyond providing him with exceptional service and professionalism during his time there. He will be missed by all who knew him. Private services will be held amongst friends.
