Myron J. Hubler, Jr., aged 90, died peacefully on March 7, 2018.
Myron is survived by his faithful wife of 65 years, Sarah; his children: Myron (Lisa) Hubler III, Leigh (Ray) Terrafranca, Lynn (David) Loewi, and William (Bonnie) Hubler; as well as ten grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
He was born in Columbus, Ohio, on February 29, 1928, to Myron and Alice (Lockwood) Hubler, Sr., and was a proud member of the USMC 1946-1952 and past member of the Marine Corps League. He held a degree in business and accounting from The Ohio State University, an MBA from Case Western Reserve University, and a Doctorate of Education from Houghton College. He worked with Ernst & Ernst, Reliance Electric, the AICPA in New York City, and the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC. As an assistant professor he taught at Cleveland State University, The University of Akron, Lake Erie College, and was an overseas instructor with The University of Maryland on U.S. military bases in Germany and Italy.
In the early 1970's, having received Jesus as Savior, his focus turned to Christian education by founding Agape School which offered free Mailbox Club Bible lessons that reached around the world to thousands of students and continues even to this day. As an extension of the school, Christian educational radio station WCVJ 90.9 FM went on air in 1978 from the family farm in Lenox Township/Ashtabula County. With the support of his wife, family, and the assistance of many faithful volunteers, Christian music, educational programs, Prayerline hosted by local Pastors, and community outreaches were all part of the ministry for over 20 years. 90.9 FM continues to broadcast under the ownership of Air1, a Christian radio network owned by the Educational Media Foundation.
His family is deeply grateful to the many people, churches, and organizations over the years that came along side in support of the Christian educational work he was called to do. They ask you remember and celebrate his life with your kind words, deeds to others, and contributions to Christian organizations of choice. Arrangements are being handled by the National Cremation Society and a memorial service is not planned at this time.
