Uncle Chubb used to take me hunting in every field from Lamar to Mingoville; we shared many very special hours and days together. And then there was his famous baked beans! My wife, Suzanne, and I send our heartfelt condolences to the rest of the family. He will be missed but forever in our hearts.
