Amory

Charles Preston Tubb, 85, passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo.  He was born in Monroe County on August 10, 1937 to the late Preston and Wilma Owens Tubb.  Charles attended Quincy School and graduated from Becker High School.  Soon after he went to work on the Frisco Railroad.  Charles loved his job on the railroad and was proud to have been a Frisco railroader.  He retired from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad as a conductor with 42 years of service.  He married the former Delana Thompson in 1957 and together they raised 5 children.  Charles was a faithful member of Becker Baptist and taught Sunday School for 26 years.  Charles loved people, never met a stranger and found no greater joy than sharing his faith with anyone that would listen. He also enjoyed being outdoors working in the yard and hunting.
