First and foremost I want to thank you all for your condolences and kind words in these rough times. Dads circles in life cover many categories, all of which I will touch on at a later date when I can write a book, << pretty much not a joke, because it will end up being that by the time its all said and done. Anyways, we are taking in donations for multiple reasons, first and foremost the expenses related to his passing. As many of you now know Dad went into the hospital with a combination of Covid and a viral pneumonia, at this time we don't have all of the details nor a tally for overall financial damages for the 18 days he was in the hospital. Whatever it may be we will carry on as a family.
Your donation in part will help cover some of these expenses as well as help continue to fund some of his favorite events throughout the year as well as anything else we can put it towards that will allow his absence to be only physical. It will help cover the cost of the memorial party February 16th, as well as the upcoming memorial get togethers that we will be holding. Ideally I'd like to hold these events at places he loved to be.
For the drag racing crowd, we would like to setup/have an ash memorial event at the local drag strip in LaRue where we spent a good portion of our childhood with our parents. With - Dan Cocherl, JD Fleece & the late Bill Guthery
For the motorcycle crowd, we would like to setup/have an ash memorial event at Triangle Motorcycle Club, as dad told many stories of the flat track days long before our time. With - Dean Kitts & Dave Black
For they Turkeyshoot crowd, we would like to setup/have two ash memorial events, one at Crawford and one at RedHill in Maryland, dad first introduced us to turkeyshoots at Crawford and Redhill is where he loved to shoot at. With Kenny Reece, Rob Berry, Brian Gilliam, Jeff Lee, Howard Montgomery, Jeff Newlin, Frank Boyer, Spanky, Ray Smith, John Workman, Hank Bowers, John Larmore, Tony White and countless others.
For the Meeker Sportsman crowd as well as local residents and friends and family we would like to setup/have and ash memorial event at Family Outdoor Day 2022 at the club. With trustees old & new as well as member and friends and family.
Denny had many things that he enjoyed doing and donating his time and expendable income to. Over the past decade plus Meeker Sportsman Club is where he spent much of his free time helping to expand access to various shooting sports as well as increase educational awareness and safety. Many of these countless hours were spent teaching youth as well as first time gun owners real world gun safety measures. He played a pivotal role in starting and leading many new development and expansion projects at the club, from the rifle range to the trap fields, to the archery range and clubhouse activities and the many events held year around at the club. Your donation will help insure that his club involvement reaches far beyond his physical presence.
Many of you have asked what you can do or how you can help. Well you know us.....
Anyways below are our own personal messages to all of you as well as Dad as to where we are on this rollercoaster. Thank you all for all that you have done, all that you do and all of your support. Love, Linda, Brandon & Dave. I'll add more to this later I just wanted to get it up before everything goes out..
From Dave Tubbs,
As difficult as it is to say goodbye... I know my father lived a fantastic full life. He was a leader, an innovator and overall a great father and grandfather. For me the hardest part of all of this knowing he had a bunch of plans that he wanted to do with my daughter that he just didn't have the time to see them through. However I'm at peace with it as I'm surrounded by a great family and I know that my father inspired and left a positive mark on many people throughout his life. Which is something I hope to achieve with my own life. As hard as I thought this would be, I continue to find comfort in just my own memories of him as well as the memories others have shared with me recently. Dad was involved in many projects and ran in many circles throughout his years, from the drag racing crowds to the flat track motorcycle crowds, to the automotive hotrod crowds, the turkeyshoot crowds, benchrest rifle crowds, 3 gun, the members of Meeker Sportsman Club, and all of the people who went through firearms safety and training courses as well as club events. His circles and impact were huge, his legacy fulfilled. Rest in peace Dad, I know even now, you are not away from us. You'll live on through many many people, myself and Brant included, love ya!
From Brandon Tubbs,
This isn't going to be complete or easy. I am accepting understanding that you may not be here physically. You are with me every day. Weather you know it or not-You have taught me so much. I've got some pretty big shoes to fill. I am glad that I got closer to you as a son. So many good memories-I am glad that you got to see a granddaughter-We will take of her. I will not give up on Dave-Together we are stronger. I understand what I have to do. Team work makes the dream work-we still have work to do.
Oh and FJB
From Linda Tubbs,
Where do you find words. Denny lived, loved and did the right thing the way he wanted to, regardless of what others thought. Family and friends came first but he shared his knowledge with, and taught so many others, hoping to make the world a better, safer place. I hope those of you who's lives he touched will pass on what he shared, and know that by doing so you help fill the enormous hole he's left behind.
