Dr. Jon Furbee
Lubbock - Dr. Jon Furbee passed away Wednesday June 2, 2021. Devoted father and loving husband, Jon was 71.
Jon was born February 1, 1950 in Moundsville, WV to Sam and Flora "Virginia" (Riebe) Furbee.
He was part of the last graduating class at Moundsville High School in 1968. He went on to get degree in Pharmacy from West Virginia University in 1973. After six years as a pharmacist, Jon decided to pursue a career in medicine as an anesthesiologist. He graduated from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1983. He then went on to complete his internship and residency at Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. He would work there until 2005. He then moved to Lubbock, TX to run the OR at Covenant Health and later began practicing in Lubbock.
Jon was a larger than life figure. No one who met him felt anything less than love. Whatever he put his mind to, he would accomplish. Jon loved to golf, go to the movies, and enjoyed a love for food and wine. He was also an avid Ohio State fan and was known for his infectious smile and a laugh that would quickly become contagious.
Jon was preceded in death by his Father, Sam, and his Mother, Virginia. He is survived by his wife of 13 years, Marcia (Overton), his daughter, Jennifer (Greg) McClure, and his son, Jordan (Erin), and their mother Mary, his brothers Sam (Sue) and Dave (MaryLou), his niece Katie (Eric) Davis and grand niece and nephew Evelyn and Oliver, his niece Kelsey, and nephews Caleb and Andrew. He is also survived by Kristen (Jason) Strefling and his grandchildren who adored him, Jonathan, Sydney, and Ava, and Ryan Carmichael, as well as his brother-in-law Dwight (Marianne) Overton and mother-in-law Emmie "MeeMaw" Overton.

What a devastating loss for friends and colleagues. Jon was an inspirational leader and the heart and soul of our Moundsville High school class of '68. His charismatic personality lifted everyone up around him. Whether it was in the classroom, on the football field, or at a social event, Jon always had your back and was there to support you. Deepest sympathy to his family. He meant so much to so many people. Rest in peace big guy.
