Felix Tubbs, Sr. Obituary

Mr. Felix Tubbs was born on April 10, 1925, in Vardaman, Mississippi, to William and Ada Tubbs, both of whom preceded him in death. His spiritual journey began at an early age when he accepted Christ as his personal savior at his family’s home church in Vardaman.


On August 9, 1947, Felix was united in Holy Matrimony with his soulmate and the love of his life, Eloice Tubbs, who also preceded him in death. From this union, three sons were born.


Felix was a longtime member of Cerro Gordo Baptist Church, where he attended faithfully. A dedicated member, he served as a deacon until his death and was always ready to serve in any capacity needed at his church. He spent his entire life working hard to ensure his family had everything they needed. He retired from the Jackson Utility Division after 30 years of dedicated employment. Felix Tubbs also served as a Private First Class in the United States Army from 1943 to 1946, including service in World War II.


Felix was loved by many. His giving spirit and wisdom impacted numerous lives. He loved his family and especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed fishing, farming, and sharing stories about his life.


Felix was also preceded in death by his son, Bobby Tubbs; four sisters, Lugene Weatherspoon, Marion Armstrong, Dolly C. Suggs, and Mattie G. Crawford; one brother, Early Tubbs; and one grandson, Tony Johnson.


On Wednesday, May 15, 2024, Felix peacefully accepted the angels’ request to transport him to his Heavenly Father. Although he will be tremendously missed, we rejoice in knowing that he is present with the Lord.


He leaves to cherish his memory: two sons, Felix Tubbs and Rex Tubbs; one daughter-in-law, Bessie Tubbs; four grandchildren, Alicia Harps, Larry (Holly) Tubbs, Lesa (Carlos) Taylor, and Christopher (Yolanda) Tubbs; eleven great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
