He was born on June 10, 1965, to Bob and Joanne Stubbs in San Diego, California, and was raised by his grandmother, Ruth Stubbs. He attended school at Western Heights which is where he graduated from in 1983. He went on to the University of Oklahoma to play football as a walk-on but only for his freshman year as injuries prevented him from further playing again. He then went on to study criminal justice as his major. In 1988, he graduated from Oklahoma University with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and had several job offers opening for him with one including the FBI but he did not want to move to New York City. He was hired by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and was there for 24 years. He was an OBN Rappel Master, Fire Arms Instructor and Nationally recognized Adjunct Instructor with Multi-Jurisdictional Counter Drug Task Force teaching several narcotics classes throughout the U.S.

 

Though he loved being a cop, he always felt that his true calling was to be in youth ministry. He was a youth pastor for several years with CrystalRock Cathedral and New Hope Church of God. He had such a great faith in God and loved ministering to teenagers. In 2006, he was ready to fulfill another lifelong dream to become a contemporary Christian recording artist. He would go on to sign with Incubator Records for a short period of time. He was such an awesome man of God. In 2009, he was going back to school at Kaplan University through their online program to get his master’s degree so he could teach criminal justice at the college level. He was expected to complete his education in December with honors. In 2010, he stepped down as youth pastor in which Brandon Waters, who was a part of his group at both CrystalRock and New Hope. His son, Gregory, followed in his footsteps and continues to minister to the youth at New Hope Church of God.

 

His favorite pastime included first and foremost spending time with his family and people that he loved, playing and writing music, going to firearm competitions, watching his kids play sports and watching Oklahoma football. He was a diehard OU fan and did his best to never miss a football game or any other sports game that was to be aired on TV. The absolutely only time he would even cheer for another team would be only if said teams win or loss would help boost OU in the polls.
