Richard W. Jubb Sr., 82, a retired Postal Service worker and an avid collector of coins and stamps, died last night at home of cancer.
Graveside services will be held at noon tomorrow at Cedar Hill Cemetery, 5829 Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park. Visiting will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. tomorrow at Johnson Funeral Home, 8521 Loch Raven Boulevard in Towson.
Mr. Jubb, who lived in Ednor Gardens, retired in 1974 after 25 years as a mailman. But he continued to pursue his coin and stamp collecting, hobbies he began at the age of 12.
Born in Baltimore, he finished only the eighth grade, but "he got his education through stamps," says his daughter, Janis Dice. He was a member for more than 50 years of the American Philatelic Society, and he also belonged to the Baltimore Coin Club.
Survivors include his wife, the former Alice Donovan; a son, Richard W. Jubb Jr.; a daughter, Janis E. Dice of Lutherville; a brother, George Jubb Jr. of Baltimore; six grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society or the Visiting Nurse Association.
