David J Grubb

David “Dave” J. Grubb, 51, of Dallas, Georgia, tragically passed away on May 5, 2021 in Bartow County, Georgia.  He was born December 4, 1969 in Dayton, Ohio.  He was a 1988 graduate of Northside High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Dave joined the Navy in June 1989, where he proudly served his country for nine years.  He was the recipient of numerous recognitions including the Navy Achievement Medal, Battle “E” Ribbon, Sharpshooter, Second Good Conduct Award, Expert Pistol Shot Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. 

On August 4, 1989, Dave married Shelley (Neal) Grubb, his high school sweetheart. He was the proud father of Danielle and Austin Grubb and Paw Paw to Ella and Owen.

Dave worked as a maintenance mechanic for over 25 years, most recently at Toyo Tires.  He was an avid motorcycle enthusiast for more than 35 years.  Dave was also passionate about cars and trucks, with a special affinity for all things Dodge.  

While Dave loved anything with an engine, his real passion was his family. On his days off, he could be found mowing the grass on his property, playing with his dogs Zeus, Zoey, Loki, and Lucy, spending time with his grandkids, Ella and Owen, or watching Star Trek. 

David is survived by his wife Shelley Grubb; daughter Danielle (Eric Bixby) Grubb; son Austin (Jenny Fogleman) Grubb; granddaughter Ella Jordan; grandson Owen Bixby; parents Terry (Betty) Grubb and Beverly Grubb; birthparents Kathy (Greg) Rand and Joe Little; sisters Alex (Satchel) Dahl and Casey Little; brothers Zach (Melissa) Atkinson, Josh Atkinson, Ben Little, and Jake Little; mother-in-law Jeanne (Tom) Arnold; sisters-in-law Kim Yeager and Kami (Bobby) Fry, nephews Chad (Holly) Yeager and Nathan (Megan) Fry; niece Nykole (James) Leamon; great-nephews Zander Fry and Noah Fry; great-niece Emma Fry.  Dave was preceded in death by his sister Julie Grubb.  

Dave will be remembered as the hardworking, loving provider than he was and will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all that knew him.  Everyone is welcome to attend a memorial service at 6 PM on Wednesday, May 12, at Georgia Funeral Care and Cremation Services located at 4671 S. Main Street, Acworth, GA 30101.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Dave’s Memorial https://gofund.me/db0d20be

YOU NEVER SAID GOODBYE
    Author Unknown 

You never said I'm leaving, 
You never said goodbye. 
You were gone before I knew it, 
And only God knew why. 

A million times I needed you, 
A million times I cried. 
If love alone could have saved you, 
You never would have died. 

In life I loved you dearly, 
In death I love you still. 
In my heart you hold a place, 
That no one could ever fill. 

It broke my heart to lose you, 
But you didn't go alone. 
For part of me went with you, 
The day God took you home.
