|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.
There is also an account set up at Chase Bank for donations in order to make a deposit you must have the following numbers:

"Happy Birthday James. You are missed.

"Sitting hear walking down memory lane, reading all the posts back to 2009 when you first got Facebook. Seeing all the pictures of us all together brings back so many great memories. We certainly shared so many great times together. Your birthdays only a week away and I wish you were here to celebrate it. It always brought togetherness within the group regardless of what was going on in our lives. I miss you so much my friend. Please continue to look out for us as you did when you were here.... Love you!"
"Hi there kiddo! It's been a couple years since you were here on this planet sharing your life and love with everyone. This is a day to celebrate your life and all that you gave to everyone you met. I'm celebrating your life, remembering. You know how many people are missing you. If it's possible for you, please give them a little sign tonight. Miss you! <3 "Mom Donna""

"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!"
"I first met chubbs as west coast nats 09....was one of the nicest most welcoming people I've met. Like we had been friends forever, spent hours hangin out talkin about trucks. And I will never for get draggin the strip with you dustin nadine and keith. I miss you buddy. You will never be forgotten. Keep my mom good company until we getta meet again.
"Gonna miss you buddy!!! I uploaded a video of him cruising his toyota coming back from DTE on my facebook."
"What can you say about Chubbs? not a single bad thing. Chubbs was a great friend and even after i left Freaks, he among others NEVER turned his back on me because we became family. I'm gonna miss you brotha! now you have no more pain. Drag through the streets of heaven and we'll hear your FREAK CHECK for ever! Love n miss u brotha! RIP Chubbs from WES."
"You literally touched my life more than you will ever know! My children loved you so much! They truly meant it when they called you their uncle. I laid in bed crying myself to sleep listening to Kailtyn do the same. Brendan loved his jungle gym Uncle Cub so much. We are better people because we knew you! I love you my brother. Save me a place right next to you!"
"I met James at the 30th Reso and We immediately hit it off. Another guy that liked Datsuns! He respectfully introduced Me to His club and Shannon. 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!"
"Chubbz is one of the bigggest reason i becoem a freak back 4 years ago! one of the downest coolest drama free friends anyone could ask for, kickin it with him at shows could make up for any bad shit that happened there! runs will never be the same without my brother there! i miss you chubbz! FREAKS FOREVER FOREVER FREAKS!"
"Chubbs will be missed by all. He is the reason i am a Freak today. I wont say where we met (Freaks that were there know). I'll miss cruisin the strip with you. See you on the other side bro."
"I would like to share one of my stories about chubbs. when I was a freak member here in phx,az and we went to vegas I meet this guy named chubbs and thought wow what a down to earth guy he is and ever time I ment him He was the same guy I ment the first time and every time even when I left freaks he never changed towards me that's what I remember about him. R.I.P CHUBBS you friend red neck"
"My Chubbers.... You were not just a friend you were like a brother. Sometimes I wanted to beat you, sometimes I was frustrated, sometimes I just wanted to hug you, but I never sometimes loved you, I ALWAYS loved you. When shannon was joking that he wasnt going to live with us forever last week and you said speak for yourself I didnt know... forever would be the next week."
"You are a huge part of Chris and my life, You have been there from the start always a great friend. The memories I will cherish always and look back on them when I need a good laught. One in particular was at Cali Councel run and that damn sheep. You will trully be missed, but I can know you will always be around. I love you and will see you when I see you. Love Chris, Denai and Ryland"

"I met him a few years back at reso , he was a really cool guy , i always saw him at events having fun , to his family and freaks im sorry for your loss
"My friend through it all, you will be missed. You were there for the most special time of my life. When Steven was born it was your smile coming into the hospital cheering me up, telling me have no fear when those Drs were going to cut into me again. Thank you for being who you were, your laugh was contagious your smile could make ice melt & your friendship was unparalleled by anyone RIP My Friend"
"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 didnt Know CHUBBS Im sure we had pass each other a few times at shows.I wanted to pay my respects to the Family and Freaks. We lost 2 guys last year and everyday i think about them wishing they were here. Im truely sorry for your lose.My prayers and thoughts are with you.

"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.
"I met Chubbs just a few years ago along with the Freaks of Nature. He was such a good friend. He was great to be around with. He will be truly missed. R.I.P. Chubbs from Skinny Nick"
