Howard Eugene Stubbs
9/12/1952 ~ 5/7/2024

In happy memory of Howard Eugene Stubbs who passed peacefully surrounded by loving family on May 7th, 2024 in West Plains Missouri.

Howard Eugene Stubbs was born on September 12, 1952, in Provo, UT, to Merrill Eugene Stubbs and Betty Jean White. He married the love of his life, Pamela Dee Thomas, on June 1, 1974 and the pair were inseparable for fifty years. They were blessed with eight children: Amy Dee (Kyle) Marchant, Scott Eugene (Megan) Stubbs, Shanalee (James) Madsen, Thomas Howard (Alice) Stubbs, Jeremy James (Rikki) Stubbs, Shane Michael (Allaree) Stubbs, Rebecca Jean (Nathan) Houston, and Kari Hansen. Howard was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, leaving behind 23 cherished grandchildren.

Howard lived his life in service to others, embodying the principles of love and compassion taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through his kindness, generosity, and unwavering support, Howard made a profound impact on the lives of those around him. He was always looking for a way to serve. Whether it was shoveling snow off walkways, using his tractor and tools to help out a neighbor, assisting a stranded traveler, or just sharing

A smile and friendly conversation, Howard was the first to see a need and fill it.

Howard has always had an extraordinary work ethic. He worked for the BYU custodial department for 25 years. He and Pam then created a family Dutch Oven catering business serving delicious food to thousands of people. Howard also loved farming. His family has so many memories of working together hauling hay, weeding the gardens, changing sprinkler pipe, picking up acres of potatoes, and feeding cows. Two of Howard’s family mottos were: “more hay” and “when life gets too tough for everyone else, it’s just right for you and me”!

His family will be eternally grateful for this giant of a man who continually taught through example, words, and love. Howard Eugene Stubbs will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

A graveside service was held at the South Fork Missouri Cemetery on Saturday May 11th at 2:00pm.
