He was born on November 21, 1963, in Pocahontas, Arkansas, the son of Elvern “Bean” Baldridge and Rachel Price. Hubert lived in Mathews, Missouri and was formerly of Mammoth Spring, Arkansas.

    Hubert will be remembered for his passion for collecting antiques, axes, hatchets, farm tools, anvils, and guitars. He enjoyed playing pool, indulging in good food, RVing, racing, and music. His love for his family was unmatched, and he strived to ensure their success beyond his time on earth. He established Baldridge Waste Solutions, a business he was delighted to pass on as a lasting legacy.

He took great pride in being a foster parent for twelve years, and in 2008, he and Cheryl were honored as Foster Parents of the Year.

    He was a cherished grandfather to Sebastian Baldridge, Gavin Baldridge, Zoey Baldridge, Isaac Nelson, Madison Goodman, Peyton Goodman, Jaxon Goodman, Benson Baldridge, Barron Baldridge, Serenity McClenaehan, Wyatt Mitchell, Luka Hernandez, Emili Lucas, Wesley Lucas, and Everett Baldridge.

    In addition to his immediate family, Hubert leaves behind his nieces Dawnisa Avery, Leah Foster, Leann Moss, Briana Maxwell, and nephews Jason Moss and Dennis Baldridge.

    A man’s legacy is measured on how others remember him and how he made people feel. Hubert has touched many lives and as Priscilla stated, as young cousins have many memories that I remember and cherish.

    To the family, Aunt Rachael, Norma Jean, Bonita and Wilma, my prayers are with you.

    Leona and I love you all.
