HULBERT, JOHN DAVID (ZOOMER) of Grants, New Mexico passed from this life July 13, 2014 in the presence of his family and loved ones and is now at peace with the world. He is mourned by his wife Jean; daughter Spring' grandson Gabe; and great-grandchildren Sam, Emma and Ali; sisters, Mary Louise Holly (Kent, OH) and Margaret Kate Hulbert (Tuscon, AZ). They share the loss with the many, many friends who were touched by his life. Zoomer was born to Kenneth and Helen Hulbert in Kent/Ravenna Ohio, December 10, 1948. After graduating high school, he started a multifaceted career path that invariably involved motor vehicles. Though motorcycles held a special place for Zoomer, whether it had two wheels or eighteen, he probably owned it or drove it and if it had an engine, he could fix it. His ultimate professional satisfaction came with his graduation from college and career as a teacher of special children when he began at age 50. As a man who had goals in life that were advanced and accomplished over decades, he was rare in his ability to relish, enjoy and truly live life in each passing hour. A very self-directed and personal individual, Zoomer touched many with an authenticity that was simple and magical for those near him and his kindness and generosity was a gift to friend and stranger alike. As Zoomer wished, there will be no funeral, but a coming-together celebration of his life at a time soon to be determined. Anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution should do so with the spirit Zoomer would have wanted: Pay It Forward. Give help to someone who needs it and think of your giving as done on the behalf of Zoomer.
