Dwight Grubbs

With both sadness and deep gratitude, we honor the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Dwight L. Grubbs. Dwight went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2023.

Dwight is survived by his wife of 64 years, Rev. Sylvia Kennedy Grubbs; his two children Leta Grubbs and Jonathan Grubbs (Mindy); his siblings Christine Maxwell, George Grubbs (Patty), Maxine McCaw (Larry), Jerry Grubbs (Jan) and Perry Grubbs (Sue); and his granddaughters Sarah Clark (Austin), Gabrielle Grubbs, Rachel Boyer (Kyle), Hannah Grubbs-Oechsle (Ian) and Charis Grubbs (John Ray); and great-granddaughter, Elowyn Clark.

Dwight was preceded in death by his parents, Ruth and Rev. J.C. Grubbs. Dwight was happiest while surrounded by family and in nature. He was a faithful gardener and had a deep love for spending time in the woods and mountains. Dwight was a cherished professor, pastor, teacher, and counselor. He earned two master’s degrees from the School of Theology of Anderson College and his doctorate in pastoral care and counseling from Texas Christian University. The wisdom and insight in his book, Beginnings, Spiritual Formation for Leaders, will have a lasting impact for readers seeking to delve deeper into their faith and ministry.
