The man who spearheaded Triad, an organization aimed at helping retirees, retired himself on Thursday after 23 years with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Greg Hubbard came to work here in 1989, taking one of the positions provided by the community policing grant, Sheriff Ron Pierini said Thursday.

Hubbard served as a deputy coroner and then in 1995 was named coordinator of Douglas County Triad, an organization that connects seniors, fire and police services.

Hubbard helped conduct the senior academy, and became well-known for his work with the group.

“Every time I’d go out somewhere, someone would come up to me and ask ‘How’s Greg doing? We really like that guy,’” Pierini said.

Hubbard’s last assignment was security for the district courts, which brought out both district judges.

“I knew I could rely on every word in (Hubbard’s) reports,” District Judge Tod Young said.

District Judge Michael Gibbons said Hubbard did a great job.
