Richard Mack Stubbs
Magee, MS
Richard Mack Stubbs went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 17, 2020, at UMMC in Jackson, MS. He was born on March 30, 1961, to Frank E. Stubbs and Bobbie Jean (Walker) Stubbs in Starkville, MS.

Early in life, Richard loved to play drums. He became a very accomplished drummer and played with many bands throughout the years. He enjoyed playing drums until his last days.

Richard was an over the road truck driver for many years. He really enjoyed traveling across the United States and meeting people. Richard always took pride in his truck driving and he won the “Best Truck Driver of the Year” Award quite a few times.

As an avid fisherman, Richard loved to fish! It was a lifelong hobby he shared with his Dad. Richard also enjoyed fishing with his friends, one of which took him fishing two weeks before his life ended.

Richard was informed in the year 2000 that he had cancer. During the next twenty years, cancer would come and go in his body. He endured his cancer battles and dialysis in hopes that one day he would be cancer-free! He was a fighter!!! Even with all the sickness in his body, he still tried to have an amazing attitude of hope.  His one last surgery to remove all known cancer ended with complications that lead to the discovery of brain cancer that was previously undiagnosed.

He is survived by his parents, Frank E. Stubbs and Bobbie Jean Stubbs and one brother, Lee Stubbs. He is also survived by two aunts, Faye (Jason) Chamberlain; Gale (Danny) Doster, and one uncle, Joe (Susan) Walker and numerous relatives.
