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 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.

I really hate that this happened to you dad. I just want you to know that you are the best dad a son could’ve asked for. Dad if I can be only half the man you were, I will consider that a huge success in my life. You weren’t just my father but you were also my only best friend in my life. I hope and pray that you are up in Heaven with our Lord and savior Jesus. I know out of everyone I know, I trust him most to take care of you. You were a good man who helped others and took excellent care of his family. For as long as me, my family, and all of those who has supported us in our time of grieving live, you will never be forgotten dad. To anyone who will listen, I will always tell them how great of a father and a man you were. One of these days, I hope and pray to see you again in Heaven dad. I love you so much. Until we meet again dad. -Austin Grubb Reply to this comment

Dave~ Thank you for being a great husband and treating my sister like a princess. Thank you for raising two great kids. Thank you for buying us a dryer 28 yrs ago (we have only had to put a couple parts on it over the years and it still works great). You were a badass at everything you did. I’m going to miss your voice that I would tell you sounded like Bill Clinton ( that you didn’t like). In your younger day you were a Tom Cruise look-a-like. Bob and I love you dearly and will miss you forever. R.I.P.???? Brother-In-Law If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I'm still in denial that I will never see you again. You were invincible to me. I just want to wake up from this nightmare. I'm so sorry dad. I wish with everything in me that I could change everything. Reply to this comment

Dave was a wonderful Son-In-Law (for 32 years). I love him dearly and always will. Dave always told me how lucky he was to married one of those Neal girls. He told me he got the prettiest girl and she still looks the same after all these years. They did everything together and enjoyed each other’s company. They were meant for each other. Dave was a good man thoughtful to others, generous also. He was a very hard worker and took care of his family and Grandchildren. He loved his Grandchildren and would play with them. He liked to make up games . His Granddaughter Ella sure had his heart. Dave and Ella spent a lot of time together. Little Owen did not get so much time with Dave unfortunately . Dave also had a temper . And voiced his opinions. He was a straight up guy. Not wishywashy. I like that in people that way you know where you stand. Dave you will be greatly missed forever. I love you Rest In Peace ! Jeanne. ♥️ Reply to this comment

Hey Brother, I miss ya and wish we had more time together. I remember the last time I saw you was when me and Melissa stopped over coming back up from Florida. It was a great night and I really enjoyed spending time with you, Shelley, and the kids. Our kids have grown and we are both papaws now that’s what my other name is. Well bro I will say you did an amazing job providing for your family and I know they love you for that! We work so hard that the time just flies. I’m just sorry we didn’t have more time together. Maybe God has some Dodge’s up their for ya to work on. I know he must have needed you for something greater that’s for sure. I’ll be seeing ya bro. Love ya Zach. Reply to this comment
