Veterans escort the casket of the late Navajo Code Talker Arthur J. Hubbard Sr. Tuesday morning in Scottsdale.

In his delivery of the eulogy, Frances Stout remembered the late Arthur José Hubbard Sr.'s humility and selflessness when it came to doing work that benefited area tribes and communities.

"In all of his achievement, Arthur always displayed quiet, dignified demeanor and was respectful to his peers in the Arizona state senate. He never sought public admiration for what he did and he never sought large financial compensation," he said of the former state senator and Navajo Code Talker.

Nearly 200 family members, guests, and many tribal dignitaries attended services for Hubbard at the Pinnacle Presbyterian Church in north Scottsdale.

He died Feb. 7 at the age of 102.
