Hubert John (Ted) Wold

July 6, 1930 — March 27, 2019

Hubert John Wold of Arlington, WA went home to be with the Lord on March 27, 2019.

Hubert was born in Willow Lake, South Dakota on July 6, 1930 to Selma and Theodore Wold.

He was the fourth of 13 children and attended school in Vienna, South Dakota.

Hubert left home at the age of 13 to pursue an adventurous life. He found work on farms and ranches, worked on the railroad, and drove long-haul trucks.

He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1952 and served as a paratrooper in the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team during the Korean War.

On August 1, 1959, he married Mary Tolbert in Miami, Texas.

Hubert became a Master Plumber and had his own plumbing and heating company in Amarillo, Texas from 1959 to 1965.

In 1965, the family moved to Washington state. He worked as a Union Ironworker for the next 21 years on various projects including the Boeing Co. 747 hangers, ARCO Refinery, and as Structural Superintendent with Snelson Anvil on modules for the Kapuruk Oil Field.

In 1985, he retired from Ironworking and started his own plumbing business, Alpha Plumbing, which he continued for the next 20 years.

Hubert loved God and served in various church positions over the years. He was extremely punctual, very generous and delighted in spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Selma and Theodore Wold; his wife, Mary Wold; siblings, Helen Fox, Delores DeWall, Carol Janisch, Ted Wold, and Gail Wold.

He is survived by siblings, Harriet Hofer, Kathy Harris, Lorraine Hodges, Marilyn Wileman, Lloyd Wold, Lyle Wold (Melodie), and Russell Wold; daughters, Debbie Huff (Larry) and Tammy Wold; grandchildren, Lindsay Hartsburg (Chris), Jodie Smith (Brett), and Jared Huff; great-grandchildren, Greyson Hartsburg and Olivia Smith.
