William M. Hulbert, 84, of Stockton Springs, Maine


Stockton Springs, Maine – William Marshall Hulbert died unexpectedly June 3, 2019 after a short illness.  He was born in Framingham on Sept. 8, 1934, the son of Jewett “Bud” Hulbert and Alyce Houghton.

He received a B.A. in Finance from the University of Massachusetts and a M.A. from Syracuse University. He was a college professor for over 30 years, teaching Finance at Syracuse University, Hartford University, and Western New England University in Springfield.

It was at Syracuse where he met and married his first wife, Susan Dudman. They were married for 47 years, and had two children, Caroline and Robert.

Bill took early retirement in 1996 and traveled with his wife throughout the Caribbean islands and Europe. In the early ‘90s, he purchased the first of two condos on his favorite island, St. Croix, USVI, spending the winter months there and the remainder of the year in Simsbury, Conn.

While on St. Croix, he and his wife volunteered at the St. George Botanical Garden and were members of the East End Club and the Navy League of US, St. Croix Council. Bill was passionate about the Boston Red Sox and loved hockey and his favorite team, the Montreal Canadiens, and often traveled to Montreal to see their games.

In Jan. 2017, he found love again when he met his second wife, Cathy Hardy, in St. Croix.  They were married on July 2, 2017, coming home to New England where they purchased a condo in Stockton Springs, Maine, and spent the summers, returning for 6 months in the winters to their beloved island of St. Croix.

Bill loved gardening, beach combing for shells, fine dining, and lounging around the pool at their Southgate Courtyard condo in St. Croix, accompanied by his faithful Corgi, Cooper. He was a kind-hearted, generous man who loved his family and his life.

He is survived by his second wife, Cathy Hardy of Stockton Springs; his daughter, Caroline “Carrie” Hulbert DeArmond, son-in-law Robert and four grandchildren, Robert DeArmond IV, Sydney, Jordan, and Murphy DeArmond of Westborough; and his son, Robert Hulbert of Simsbury, Conn.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to either the Waldo County General Hospital’s Hospice Care program in Belfast, Maine, or the St. George Botanical Garden in St. Croix, USVI.

A private memorial service will be held at Stockton Harbor on June 30 for family and close friends.
