Thank You From The Tubbs Family

Thank You From The Tubbs Family

The Family of Pvt. Edwin F. Tubbs wish to thank all that attended the bridge dedication on December 2, 2014. It was an astounding turnout and a beautiful memorial to our fallen family member. Even though Eddie has been gone many years the family feels more closure and is honored to be able to have the bridge that Eddie traveled daily in his childhood dedicated to him.

We, the family understand that it takes a lot of work to be able to accomplish this dedication and we wish to thank the Coudersport Borough Council and the Potter County Board of Commissioners for their letters of support. We also want to extend thanks to State Senator Joe Scarnati, Representative Martin Causer, Representative Glen Thompson and Senator Pat Toomey for their participation in the ceremony as well as legislation. Thanks extended also to the Potter County Honor Guard, The Vietnam Veterans Legacy Motorcycle Club and Reverend Janis Yskamp.

We also want to thank long time family friend Commissioner Paul Heimel and Potter County Veteran Affairs Director Will Worthington for making this dedication possible and a very special, memorable time for all of us.

Thank you all for acknowledging our fallen hero.
The Tubbs Family

This is beautiful. So glad that after all these years they got this done. I heard discussions about it more than a year ago by a certain person whose name I am not going to reveal here but he took this on as a mission and made it happen. God bless the Tubbs and Baker families. Your brother, stepson, uncle, etc., was a true American hero who left us so young while serving others. Thanks for posting this.
