Flag presented to Amanda and Jesse Stubbs in honor of U.S. Government service of their father, Mr. Tim Stubbs

Mr.Tim Stubbs, retired National Park Service employee and former CAVE ire Management Officer, passed away unexpectedly on January 28, 2010, while attending a Fire Training course in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Though retired, Mr. Stubbs still served the U.S. Government as a contract firefighter.
On Friday, February 5, 2010, at 4:00 PM at the park’s town headquarters Management Assistant Paula B. presented Amanda and Jesse Stubbs with a flag in honor of their fathers service to the National Park Service.

Amanda shared with the group that she had been privileged and proud to go with her Dad when he when to a Boy Scout organization meeting to celebrate his 30th anniversary of working with the Boy Scout Program.
Jesse told us that on several occasions that different firefighters had told him that his Dad’s distinctive voice “on the radio”  from an air tanker or on the grounds at a fire had reassured those firefighters that ”with Tim at the controls” they were in good hands. Tim’s reputation as a dedicated and devoted firefighter, who always stressed the safety of the people on his team, who always listened to the concerns/needs of those people, and who always remembered the importance of organizing and securing resources for his fire teams, was well known among firefighters, nearby and far away.

Carole B., far left, Patty F., second from the left, and Diane E., far right, all worked with Tim at CAVE. Patty recounted the many times that Tim called her and told her, “to pack her things because they were going to a fire.” CAVE Chief Ranger Lila M., in uniform,  did not work  with Tim, but came to honor his memory.

Mike “Fish” S., U.S. Forest Service, who fought fires with Tim, is the second row of the second picture above. Barbara R, in the far right of both pictures, is Amanda and Jesse’s Mother.

When sharing stories about Tim at the end of the ceremony, the consensus recalled Tim as a very dedicated, enthusiastic, employee who spared no efforts in leading and working in support of the CAVE fire program and who could be counted to speak his mind to bosses, when others might hesitate for fear of getting in trouble.

We, the friends of Tim Stubbs and his family, wish Amanda and Jesse and Barbara the best of luck and health as they return to their current home in San Diego.

My first experience with wildland fire was as a reporter for the Current-Argus and Tim was my introduction to the world. It was an experience I'll never forget, and he was a man I'll always remember.
