Gano Richard "Dick: Tubb, 74, of Levelland, Texas, left to be with our Lord and Savior early Wednesday morning, July 27, 2016. Dick was born on October 30, 1941, in Levelland, Texas, to Howard Gano Tubb and Goldie Curtis Tubb. He was a retired business owner and an avid fisherman and golfer.

Dick married Patricia Bridges on May 7, 1964, and was with her for many happy years until the day of his passing. She was definitely the source of his most pride and joy. Dick enjoyed spending time with his loving family and many friends. He attended South Plains College in Levelland and received his B.S. from West Texas State University in 1967.

Dick taught school for four years in Hereford, Texas, before taking jobs with Farm Bureau, SPS and Tretolite. He started his own company, Chem Tech, in 1980. He later brought in a partner, Dennis Patton and eventually sold the business in 2006. Chem Tech is still proudly owned by members of the Tubb family.

Dick was preceded in death by his father Gano and mother Goldie. He is survived by his wife Patricia; brother Joe and wife Kathy of Levelland and brother Mack and wife Melissa of Spring. He had many nieces and nephews including nephew Chad Tubb of Lubbock; niece Leslie Spears and husband Britt, also of Lubbock; Jennifer Darwin and husband Todd; Beth Cozby and husband Drew; niece Penny Tubb of Spring; and niece Libby Garavito and husband Gonzalo, also of Spring. He had many great nephews and nieces including Kayli, Kade, Keely, Jake, Noah, Ainslee, Lizzie, Joe, Gleith, Merritt and Emily.
