From Kenishia's daughter Nita Hubbard: (multiple pronouns changed to avoid misgendering Kenishia and respect her life)
For those of you who are unaware my father suddenly passed away at the age of 50 years young yesterday afternoon. I am saddened and in shock but more importantly I want to make sure that everyone who knew Kenishia is aware of her death so they may join our family and friends in her home coming. Please spread the word. I will keep everyone posted on the wake and funeral services. Rest in peace daddy, I love you. Kenishia "KiKi" Hubbard January 3, 1964 - August 18, 2014.
Kenishia was born in Fort Worth, graduated from Dunbar High, studied at Tarrant County Junior College and served our country proudly as a US Marine. Kenishia was also a mentor to many transsisters in the San Diego area .
I had the pleasure of meeting her along with many of my BTAC family at the recent edition of the Black Trans Advocacy Conference in Dallas.
Kenishia was my roommate for the event and we spent a few long nights discussing our lives up to that point and her desire to expand her outreach wings in the San Diego and national trans community. She had a heart as wide as our home state and never failed to put a smile on my face and everyone else who she came in contact with during the time we were together at BTAC
And as I found out to my chagrin at the Saturday fun day, she plays a mean game of dominoes.
I made a friend during that weekend, and saddened I didn't get the opportunity to build on the connection we made during that weekend in Dallas like I wanted to do.
A reminder to all of us. Tell the people that you care about and who mean a lot to you how much you appreciate them while they are in this plane of existence to hear it.. Once they are gone, it's too late to do so.
Services for Kenishia Hubbard are pending at this time, and as I get information about the homegoing service arrangements or any memorial services being planned in the San Diego area, I'll pass that info to you as soon as I receive it.
If you wish to send donations, flowers or cards, you can do so via Kenishia Hubbard's daughter Nita Hubbard. Phone number is 972-750-1929 or you can call 619-506-7505.
Rest in power and peace Kenishia. Until we meet again.
