This mission is confirmed. There will be no family present, and his Elgin area friends have requested the Patriot Guard help provide a proper farewell, with respect and gratitude for Mr. Nubbe's service to our country.
Our contact in Elgin who is arranging the memorial service is Bradley Jones. Mr. Jones is the friend of Mr. Nubbe who went to check on him at his home and discovered he had passed away. Mr. Jones also happens to be our own Frank James' son-in-law and the proprietor of Jones Funeral Home.
