On the morning of July 19, 2020 we had to say goodbye to an amazing Husband, Father, Cousin, Grandpa, Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend. Charles Lee McCubbins passed away from a severe bacterial infection.
Services are planned for Friday, July 24 at 10 a.m. at the Radersburg Cemetery, Townsend, Mont. A gathering will follow at 1 p.m. at the home of Charlie and Micki.
He was born, Feb. 23, 1956 to Vonda and Byron McCubbins, in Walla Walla, Wash. Charlie was the youngest of four, and soon the family would move to Kalispell where Charlie grew up and went to school. Charlie loved hunting, fishing, riding horses, working cattle, fixing fence, going to the cabin, spending time in the “Big Hole”, camping, cutting firewood, Christmas tree hunting, and milling his own wood.
Charlie took great pride in passing his skills and love for the outdoors to his children and grandchildren. Charlie loved his family and friends and he would do anything for them. Charlie was as close to a perfect example as anyone could be. He has continued his kindness by sharing a part of himself to allow two people to gain their sight.
From the time he was 18 Charlie spent 20 years in the logging business, until numerous broken bones forced him to pick a less dangerous career in Radiology. His favorite being MRI. Charlie’s most current workplace was the MRI center in Helena.
Charlie was married to Patti Adkins and had three wonderful children, Nicholas, Elizabeth and Jonathan. In 2014 Charlie and Micki were married and were later sealed in the Rexburg, Idaho Temple. Charlie seamlessly took the role as father to Micki’s children, Colt, Jeff, Ross and Dana.
Charlie is survived by his wife Michelle “Micki” McCubbins; mother, Vonda McCubbins; his children Charles Nicholas McCubbins (wife Marsha), Elizabeth Leanna Vig (husband Dean), Jonathan Lee McCubbins (wife Corrine), Colt, Jeff Brown (wife Alia), Ross Brown (wife Carly), Dana Brown; and 16 grandchildren, Hannah, Haylee, Justin, Avery, Corbin, Kateri, Amelia, Felicity, Aryana, Emmy, India, Jack, Rex, Cruz, Riley and Brooklyn.
