Albert John Gubala, Sr., age 50, passed away May 31, 2013 in Naples, FL. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland to Edward and Annette Gubala. His greatest happiness came from spending quality time with his family. Albert spent countless hours coaching Little League, Basketball and Football and was considered a "second dad" to many of the young men he coached. When he wasn't on the field coaching or spending time with family, he was surely to be found outdoors with his bow in hand searching out a great hunt. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. Those who knew Albert will always cherish his giving spirit and big heart. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Richard and Keith Gubala. Survivors include his loving wife of 32 years, Tammy Johnston Gubala; three sons, Albert John Gubala, Jr. and wife Sally, Jeffrey Scott Gubala and fiancÚ Haley and Tyler Luke Gubala and fiancÚ Nicole all of Naples; brother, Edward J. Gubala of Naples and sister, Denise Varble of Tampa; seven grandchildren, Zoe, Madison, Logan, Parker, Makayla, Greyson and Kennedy; numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws, friends and his four legged companion, Hooch. The family will receive friends from 6pm to 9pm Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at Fuller Funeral Home, 1625 Pine Ridge Rd. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated 10 am Thursday, June 6, 2013 at St. William Catholic Church, 601 Seagate Drive. In lieu of flowers, a memorial trust fund has been established through Fifth Third Bank where donations may be made in Albert's memory.
