Gerald (Jerry) F. Grubbs, Jr

Gerald (Jerry) F. Grubbs, Jr., 60, passed away April 3, 2023 at his home. Jerry was born April 14, 1963 a son of the late Gerald F. and Reba (Rice) Grubbs. Rather than expound on his earthly achievements, Jerry would want me to tell you that, “It’s All About Him,” As long as he was able, he proclaimed the goodness of God. He would tell you that cancer was a gift of sweet communion and peace with Jesus. Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Judith (Newman); children, Jacob Grubbs, Pam (Marc) Bailey, Matthew (Karah) Pennington and Katie (John) Hylton; grandchildren, Andrew and Ethan Bailey, Ashley Pennington (great-grandson, Hudson), Justin Pennington, Zoe, Lilly and Brady Hylton; brothers, Steve (Cissy) Grubbs, John (Tana) Grubbs, Jim (Moriah) Grubbs; brother-in Christ, Kelly (Glenda) Boggs, as well as beloved cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. Family and friends are welcome to celebrate Jerry’s life Saturday from noon-1:00 PM at the First Baptist Church of Kenova 1120 Poplar Street Kenova, WV with a service to follow at 1:00 PM. Online condolences may be expressed at

I have a very special spirit with me all the time. Heaven’s paradise is not so hard to figure out. Really. No more tears and no more pain. So many loved ones to see. Talking with the person of the Holy Spirit and knowing nothing else can be done. I was given assurance from prayer. It was my time to surrender all for my Jesus. I came to a point that for every step of progress, I would make another set-back. I now lose blood by the day. We are at the definite point that I am going Home. I’m so excited except for leaving my Judith and Jacob.

  1. Judith and Jacob. I’m so sorry for your loss. Heaven gained a soul that loved the Lord more than his own life as he eagerly awaited to be reunited with his Jesus. We can only imagine him running into his Savior’s arms and hearing Jesus say “Welcome home my good and faithful servant.” Jerry’s life was a testament to the love he had for the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
