Obituary for James Raymond Kubala

James Raymond Kubala was born in Ennis to Roy and Georgia Kubala on October 18, 1959. He attended St. John School earning many awards for basketball and graduating with the high boy average. As a young man, he enjoyed dove hunting and fishing and later took his young nephews to fish and of course to get snow cones after school.

Jim worked in grocery retail for Safeway while in high school and afterwards for 10 years. He also worked for K-Mart, HEB, and Wal Mart before finding his favorite job at Ennis Ford. Hard working, he rarely missed a day.

Jim was a member of KJT and Sokol and was a friend to everyone. He loved 70’s and 80’s music, singing karaoke, and cooking the best barbecue ribs anywhere. He was a beloved member of his family and will be truly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents and survived by his siblings and their spouses: Annette and Carlyle Locke, Rosalyn and Ron Leahy, Alice Lunkwicz, Cynthia and Mark Forney, and Philip and Tamara Kubala. He is also survived by several cousins, nieces, and nephews.

A graveside service is scheduled for Friday, December 8, 11:00 AM at St. Joseph Cemetery. Family, friends, and coworkers are invited to KJT dining hall immediately afterwards for lunch, visiting, and celebrating Jim’s life.
