Obituary

James Richard Kubby died November 30, 2019 at Bishop Drumm Care Center. He was in declining health for several months. Jim was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa on March 8, 1938 to Ben and Miriam (Fichtenberg) Kubby. After graduating from Des Moines Roosevelt High School, he served in the U. S. Army. Jim then attended the University of Illinois and Iowa State University. He was employed by IBM & Pioneer Data Systems. Jim enjoyed playing bridge, swimming, golf and especially racquetball.

His marriage to Carol (Bayes) Kubby was blessed with three children, David, Gail and Kenneth. Jim later married Rose Russo. He is survived by his son, David Kubby, daughter, Gail Meckley, grandchildren, Nichole Kubby, Amber Kubby, Ashley Kubby, Aaron Meckley, Grace Meckley, four great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Dan Kubby and Robert Kubby; and his son, Kenneth Kubby.

Per his wishes, there will be no service. The family will have a private remembrance. The family wishes to thank Immanuel Pathways Hospice and Bishop Drumm for their thoughtful care.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family for funeral expenses, in care of Dunn’s Funeral Home.
