Horace “Dub” Wolfe Feagans, Jr., 81, died peacefully on Sunday, December 9, 2018.
Dub had courageously battled Alzheimer’s for almost six years. He was born April 25, 1937, in Chattanooga. He was a 1955 graduate of Red Bank High School and a 1959 graduate of The University of Chattanooga.
Dub began working at Barker Oil in his late teens. After graduating from The University of Chattanooga, he pursued a career in accounting. Dub’s career spanned many roles over 56 years. He was a master in the business world and enjoyed every endeavor. He retired from Chattanooga Christian School in 2012 and Logan-Moore in 2014. Dub served every position he ever held with unsurpassed dignity and professionalism.
Dub was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He never missed a performance, recital, or banquet for one of his children or grandchildren. His family was his sense of pride. There was nothing he would not do for any of them.
