Jerald Lee Tubby was born September 1, 1968 in Tulsa, Okla., the younger of two children born to Jerry Wayne Tubby and Gloria Jean (Kirkland) Tubby. He was raised in Sand Springs and attended school there.

Jay worked various jobs throughout the years, just trying to make it. Life’s challenges were sometimes a bit much for Jay, but he managed the best he could.

By chance, he met a young lady who had shared many of his own experiences. They were perfect for each other and overcome much with each other’s help and the grace of God. Her name was Vicki Shirell.

Day after day and challenge after challenge, brought Jay and Vicki to Wayne closer together, and they eventually married on July 18, 2015 in Okemah. The following year, they moved to Wayne and this fresh start was exactly what Jay needed. He began working for B&H Construction as a pot holer. Jay loved his job and was grateful for the opportunity. 

When not working, he was “all about his grandkids”. Jay loved anything and everything to do with motorcycles and he never missed a chance to go fishing. Jay accepted Christ and was baptized at Goldsby Baptist Church. He will be remembered as a wonderful husband and father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and a true friend.  

He was preceded in death by his parents, Jerry Wayne Tubby and Gloria Jean (Kirkland) Tubby.

Jay leaves behind his wife, Vicki of the home; children, Rebecca Owens and husband, Johnny Powell ,of Sand Springs, Logan Shirell, US ARMY, currently stationed in Iraq, Hunter Robinson of Ada and Ryon and Chevy Babajan, both of the home; sister, Jodee Tubby-Bailey and husband, Don, of Sand Springs; brothers, Jerry Wayne Tubby of Durant, Lewis Tubby and wife, Mandy, of Siloh, Okla., and Jerome Tubby of Durant; seven grandchildren, Jennifer, Robert, Aaron, MaKenzi, Peyton Jaxon and Easton; one great-grandchild, Annabelle and a host of other family and friends.
