Frank Leo Stubbs Jr.
January 7, 1963 – April 7, 2018
Frank Leo Stubbs, Jr., born on January 7, 1963 in Marietta, Georgia, left this world on April 7, 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida. He was the proud son of Mr. Frank Leo Stubbs, Sr. of Palm Beach, Florida and Mrs. Wylene Stubbs-Brewer of Marietta, Georgia.
Frank would spend his early years between New York City and Atlanta with his parents. Frank’s parents were both musical scholars, and like his parents, Frank was a very talented piano player at a young age. He honed his skills by playing for churches throughout the Marietta area. Also, he had the opportunity to spend time with his late Uncle Cornelius Crowder in Hawaii, while serving in the United States Navy. Frank would ultimately graduate from Marietta High School in 1981 and join the Navy the following year.
Frank would go on to serve his country with honor for 24 years, reaching the esteemed rank of Chief Petty Officer (CPO E-7). During duty, he specialized as an aviation administrator, managing and maintaining important aircraft logs, aboard ships and remote duty stations. This is the spark that ignited his passion for computer systems. He taught himself and adult computer classes at Jacksonville University. After his illustrious military career, Frank would obtain a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems from Columbia College. While working full time as a security professional at the naval hospital in Jacksonville, Frank continued to challenge himself academically, obtaining his Masters, in Information Technology Management from Webster University.
While Frank enjoyed his work, his true passions were mentoring others and being close to family and friends. As a young man, Frank would marry Latricia Stubbs who he would devote 24 years of his life loving. Like many couples, Frank and his wife embraced parenthood, having two children, Kaelan (son) and Kaleia (daughter). Aside from his immediate family who he loved dearly, Frank enjoyed spending time with his fourteen (14) nieces and nephews. He encouraged them often to pursue their dreams and achieve their educational goals.
Frank continued to excel in his career as a senior team lead at Five Stone Research. Frank poured his energy into learning all he could about the subject of Information Security. Frank was a man of many passions and skills that never compromised on his beliefs and his approach to life. On the softer side, he developed a deeply rooted passion for cooking as well as music, eventually mastering the saxophone, piano and guitar. Truly a man of many passions and skills, Frank never compromised on his beliefs and his approach to life as a consummate traditionalist with a few basic principles: always on time, keen on manners, and never without a professional sports coat.
Frank is survived by his wife, Latricia Stubbs; children, Kaelan and Kaleia; his mother, Wylene Stubbs Brewer; his brothers, Maynard, John, and Charlie; his sisters, Camille and Rosalynn and (Terry); his nieces, Sequoyah, Unique, Chloe, Elaina; and his nephews, Dwight Jr, Jadon, Ethan, Elijah, Ayden, Zayshaun, Maynard, Christian, Cameron, and Joshua.
