Obituary for Charles William "Charlie" Grubbs Jr.

Charlie (Jr.) was born on May 11, 1951 in Knoxville, TN to Charles and Lucille Grubbs. He graduated from Karns High School in 1969, where he was a standout player on the football team.

He was an avid bass fisherman and loved spending time fishing with his son Chip and his grandson's Cole and Cal. When he wasn't fishing, Charlie was cheering on his grandsons as they played football and baseball. He was loved by all who knew him, but he was loved most by the two lucky enough to call him "papaw".
