He loved taking his family snow skiing, fishing, deer hunting, beach trips, floating the river and several other places.

Debbie,I am so sorry to hear that Dub has gone, but knowing that he is in a much better and brighter place with no pain or illness is the only thing that makes it even close to bearable. I can’t imagine what heartache and stress you have been under for so long. So sorry I was unable to attend his visitation and funeral as I am out of state. But you and your family have been on my mind and in my heart. Love, Dona

Prayers for you Debbye and your family. I knew him growing up as W.C. and not as “Dub”. We were in 4-H and went to school together. Evidently he continued being a very special friend to many. He was man enough to stand firm for our GOD!! So very proud of him and you both for the adventure GOD had you on which touched so many lives. Prayers for GOD’s strength and comfort as you face each new day without him.LoveKathy
I have known this family since I was little and they are such a God-loving family. May God send peace and comfort that passes all understanding. Ava and me are sending lots of love, hugs, and prayers!

Staci, my heart breaks for you, as I know what a daddy's girl you were. Heaven just keeps getting sweeter knowing our loved ones are there waiting for us! I can never thank you enough for getting me through my mother's funeral. You are truly a treasure, and you certainly are in the right field of work! You and your family are in my prayers.
Debbye and family, I’m so very sorry for your loss- but Heaven’s gain! I pray for comfort, strength, and peace. Just think of all Dub is seeing and experiencing right now! He is totally healed! And praise the Lord, we will see Dub again one day! Big hugs and prayers for you all in the days ahead.

I met Dub about three and a half years ago when he and Debbye joined EU. Dub and Elroy Brown took me in as a friend immediately and completely while showing great patience with me as I began to learn guitar. My heart reaches out to the family as they go through this long mourning process. Dub changed people when he interacted with them. I’m proud to say that Dub was a friend to me. God Bless.
