PEORIA, Ill. -- The local scouting community is mourning the death of one of its most outstanding members.

Deveraux Hubbard Jr., 19, passed away Monday morning after a brief illness.

Last year, Hubbard was one of two Peoria teens to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout after implementing community impact projects.

Deveraux Hubbard was the son of Deveraux and Kristie Hubbard, the Pastor and first lady of St. Paul Baptist Church in Peoria.

A memorial service will be held at the church Friday beginning at noon.
