Norman R. Stubbs

Coshocton - Norman Richard Stubbs, 81, passed away Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at Genesis Hospital in Zanesville.

He was born July 10, 1938, the only child of the late Guy & Lelia (Shryock) Stubbs. Born and raised in Coshocton, Norman graduated from Roscoe High School in 1956. He was active in all sports, Band, Glee Club, mixed chorus, and was Delegate to Buckeye Boy's State & 4-H.

Norm attended OSU before entering the Air Force in 1957. He was discharged in 1960, when he went on to work for Martin Marietta and the Minuteman Missile Program before returning to Ohio. In 1966 he made his way back to Coshocton, where he resided until his death.

Norm worked for the Department of Defense at the local Newark Air Force Station for 30 years until it was privatized and purchased by Boeing, where he retired in 2006.

Norm enjoyed farming most of his life, but his real joy was working with young people, helping with Roscoe Recreation Little League baseball and Conesville Elementary basketball programs with his son. Later on he moved on to Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts, being the Scout Master of Canal Lewisville Troop 413 for many years. He also worked at the Muskingum Valley District level. Norm also shared his love of horses with his daughter. He was a member of the Roscoe United Methodist Church for many years, serving on various committees.

He leaves behind his wife of 50 years, Irene (O'Donnell) Stubbs; his son, Scott (Ann) Stubbs; his daughter, Suzanne Stubbs; grandchildren, Austin & Anncamille Stubbs, Shannon Tross, and Trevor Baratier; and his great-granddaughters, Arianna & Riley Tross.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Downing Burr & Anna Mae (Guilliams) Shryock; and his paternal grandparents, Joseph Batty & Catherine (Clough) Stubbs.

I worked with Norm many years at NAFB we had some great times and some we knew were not fun. Praying God warps his arms around your family in this time of your great loss. RIP Norm

have no words to describe the hurt I feel now. From the first day I met Norm, forty plus years ago I knew I was going to like him. Nothing in all these years has changed that. Seeing the kids grow up, making hay and visits over cheese and trail bologna will forever be in my heart.
Love to you all.
