Brian Stubbs Funeral Costs

Brian, as his friends and family very well knew, was an incredibly brilliant and talented person. He was so well versed and his unique views could keep you in conversation for hours. His musical skills were unprecedented. Not only was he an amazing bassist, but hearing him explain what you were hearing in the music was an experience. He was always down for a laugh and a good time with his friends. Even though a lot of the humor he enjoyed could be dark, you knew that he was constantly finding a way to laugh in the midst of dark times.

Early in the morning of August 31st, 2017, Brian passed away very suddenly from a pulmonary embolism. He was only 28 years old. He is survived by his mother Elaine and his brother Andrew. 

Brian and Andrew lived together in Philadelphia. Brian worked as an overnight dispatcher for a taxi company, Andrew works as a bartender, both active musicians. Their mother lives in Ohio and has been in and out of work in the past several years due to health problems. As hard as they all work, they've had to face many hardships. Brian was without health and life insurance, and the family is unable to pay for funeral costs. This sudden tragedy also leaves his brother worrying about living costs moving forward. 

We're asking for donations of any size to help cover Brian's funeral costs and to help the family remain on their feet during this incredibly tough time. Anything you can contribute is appreciated. The Stubbs' are such loyal people who always take care of their friends and family. Please take a moment to share this with your friends and family and let us return some kindness and love.
