Chubb, Eric Obituary

Eric James Chubb passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37 at his home in Jonesborough, TN. He was born in Midland, MI on July 21, 1976 to William and Linda Chubb of Sanford, MI.

Eric graduated with honors from Meridian High School and Central Michigan University; he attended the accelerated graduate program at Western Michigan University where he received his Master’s degree in Behavior Analysis. Eric recently left his position at Greene Valley Development Center in Greeneville, TN as a Behavior Analyst to pursue his interest of working with clients in the community full time. He had a great love of East Tennessee and enjoyed running and hiking in the mountains.

His greatest passion was playing old-time and country music. He was a wonderful guitar, banjo, and mandolin player and enjoyed playing music festivals around the areas with his close friends. He was always concerned about how he could help other people and touched many people’s lives in a positive way. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Eric is survived by his parents, William and Linda Chubb of Sanford; his brother Dave (Jacquelyn) Chubb and nephews Caden and Garrett Chubb of Sanford. He is also survived by his aunts and uncles Sherry (Barney) Linton, Gary (Leann) Elza, Sharon Beamish, Karen Costley, Martha (Cal) Huber, Laura Chubb, Dawn Letts and very special friends in Jonesborough, TN., Susan Greineder (and children) and Rob and Jessica Chittum (and children). He was preceded in death by his grandparents John and Ruth Elza and William and Leah Chubb.

Funeral services will take place at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 14, 2013 from the Ware-Smith-Woolever Funeral Home, 1200 West Wheeler Street. Rev. Anthony Cutting of Sanford United Methodist Church will officiate with cremation to follow the service.

Eric’s family will receive friends at the funeral home on Tuesday from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. and on Wednesday from 12:00 noon until the time of services.

Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider East Tennessee State University for a scholarship in Eric’s name to help upcoming music students.
