Let the memory of "Chubbs" be with us forever

James “Chubbs” McKittrick, how can you sit down and honestly write something about who he was. There isn’t one word that can accurately describe the person we shared our lives with. Some of us have known him his whole life, others 18 years between then and now he picked a lot of us up along the way. When he was your friend he gave it his all, standing by you whenever you needed, always willing to lend a hand if he could and the times he couldn’t who stand next to you in support. 33 years young we lost an incredible Son, Father, Brother, Friend and Freak Family Member.

 As we hurt and cry wishing his life hadn’t ended so soon, we must carry forward and continue to be there for his mother and 3 beautiful little girls. Times are tough for all of us but Chubbs gave all of himself by being who he was to us and now we ask each of you to help in honoring the person he was by helping. Below is a link to donate anything you can so that his family and his Freak family can provide him with a memorial service he deserves. Any proceeds that may exceed service costs will go into a trust fund for his daughters. Please consider any donation you may be able to give.

"I never did get to meet chubbs although we talked about linking up at WCN and having a drink or two. We chatted often on StreetSource and he was always there some sort of input and always said hello when I came into chat. Very sad to hear this news and even sadder I didn't get to meet him in person. RIP mini-truckin brother!"

You see, I am one of the few mini truckers old enough to be His Dad. He towed My boat and I reciprociated with a ride in it. I truly wish I could share the horror on His face in that boat! But alas, I didn't take a photo. I will NEVER forget that smile!"

"Every time I saw Chubbs whether it was at WCN, a party, or a local show, he was always smiling and joking around.  He had a way about him that made it easy to talk to him, calling him a friend came naturally.  I always looked forward to seeing him, and the scene will be missing something special without him.  RIP Chubbs, you will always be remembered."

"I know my words won't do him justice....there's not enough to be said... I met chubbs early in highschool, he was a seemingly quiet guy till u got to know him...he had a huge heart, a heart of gold... always had a smile whether things were up or not, he was always first to lend a hand, greet and meet you, make u feel warm, he was a great father and loved his kids...he was amazing..."

"Chubbs touched so many lives in so many ways. I will be forever grateful that my son brought him into our lives. We will miss his smile, his humor, his love of life. His passing means we have to double our efforts to be good enough to join him in heaven when it's our turn to leave this earth. R.I.P. kiddo, I'll try to remember to smile and not cry so much. Love you! "Momma Donna""

"I've faded out of the scene for personal reasons, but caught wind of this and had to make an appearance on here to say some things.

I've known Chubbs for a long time, we always talked, he was a super friendly guy, and an amazing person. I'm happy and honored to say I've gotten the chance to talk to him numerous occasions, he is hands down one of the greats.

James."
