Such a sad loss. He was truly a blessing to my family. I have no idea of why he picked my father to be best friends with sometimes but I’m happy that he did. They are probably up in heaven already stirring the pot together like old times. Prayers to your family in this difficult time.
Billy was a great school friend to all, from Stringtown to North, everyone knew Billy Grubbs, he will be greatly missed. Prayers to his family.
William P. “Grubby” Grubbs, 75, passed away at home on August 10, 2021. He was born on April 11, 1946, to Clarence and Ada Pearl (Clark) Grubbs in Mt. Carmel, Illinois.
William was known as “Grubby the Great” early in life. At 17, he joined the United States Army. After his time in the service, Grubby took to working with horses. He owned and trained horses for racing and riding, and walked them around the track at Churchill Downs. He worked for a time in construction and siding; but most recently was a driver for Dallas Towing. In his spare time, Grubby enjoyed spending time with his buddies at the VFW Post # 2953, American Legion 265, AMVETS Post # 09, and the OWLS Nest # 30. He also had a great fondness for his grandchildren. Grubby was a husband, father, papaw, and friend; a great man who will be dearly missed.
Grubby is survived by his wife of 52 years, Joyce Grubbs; his children, Dawn (Tony) O’Neal, Patty (Ken) Handeland, and C.W. Grubbs; his grandchildren, Justin (Amanda) O’Neal, Alicia O’Neal, Dalton Coleman, Tommy (Kaitlyn) Barnes, Megan Grubbs, Madison (Blake) Williams, Lainie Grubbs; 11 great grandchildren; his sisters, Sandy Halfacre, Barbara Jo Steele, and Norma Weiss; and his brother, Dickie Grubbs.
