Gregory Alan Clubb

Gregory Alan Clubb, age 59, of League City, passed away on Sunday, July 30, 2023 after a courageous twelve year battle with neuroendocrine cancer.  He was surrounded by his family at his home in League City, Texas.

He was born May 3, 1964 in Burlington, Iowa to Gordan and Janet Cochrane Clubb.

Gregory was a 1982 graduate of Burlington Community High School and graduated from Iowa State University with highest honors in 1987. He was of the Lutheran faith.  He thoroughly enjoyed his job of 35 years as an aerospace engineer at Boeing.  His career culminated with receiving the prestigious Silver Snoopy Award from NASA.  His family could not have been more proud of his many accomplishments. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially when playing games or during their many trips to Disney World.

Also surviving is his mother, Janet Clubb, siblings Yvonne (Jeff) Moen, Bruce (Carrie) Clubb, Brian (Irish) Clubb, and Sandra (John) Peterson. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father and grandparents.

  1. Candace, Sam, Garrett and Kira,

    We are so sorry for your loss. You all have so many wonderful memories of Greg. We hope these memories help you through this difficult time. Greg has been a part of our lives for over 40 years. He was always the jokester but also willing to help with any technical issues. He loved a challenge. I remember all the pranks he was involved in with mom. The fake marriage proposal was probably one of the best. Greg was a friend to many and loved his family fiercely. We’ll miss our brother-in-law and will always remember your laugh. We’ll think of you when we’re playing card games. Our prayers are with all of you.

  2. When I hear his name or refer to Greg Clubb, I immediately think of Slow Pitch Softball. Many of us were teammates with Greg on the Lakeside Lutheran Church Softball team.

    Greg could play with Brawn but he chose to play with Brains; Greg was our go to pitcher however he could play any position on the field. Strikeouts are rare in slow pitch & Greg earned his share of the rare “K’s”.

    Greg is and will always be a sports-fan but known best for his sportsmanship.
    Congratulations to Greg for a life well played and blessings to his Bride Candice, adult children Sam (Carlie), Garrett and Kira Clubb for the example this great man provided for you to follow. Greg you never gave up or gave in. You will forever be loved and in our hearts.

    Peace be with us all,

    John Dixon

  6. I can’t remember the first time I met Greg. I think it was when he was a co-op and we were both working for McDonnell Douglas. Our paths crossed numerous times during our careers at McDonnell Douglas and Boeing. We worked together for many years on the ISS program. I still have boxes of ISS memos and presentations that have both of our names on them. Both being from Iowa we had a lot in common. I think we might have been on the same C league softball team playing on the JSC league. Candace and Greg threw some awesome pool parties back in the day. Greg was always enthusiastic when he was planning his family trips to Disney. Greg was a superb engineer and willing to help others solve engineering problems. One humorous situation occurred back when Greg was working the Iridium program – I probably don’t remember the details very well. He was tasked with helping the Chinese do a better job of estimating the deployed satellites initial trajectories. After he completed that work, there was some issue with ITAR compliance. Greg was really worried about having to go to jail. The left hand of the government didn’t know what the right hand was doing and all worked out for Greg in the end. After my move to Colorado, I really missed the weekly lunch meets with Greg, John Whynot and myself at Taco Bell. I don’t think we solved any of the world’s problems at those lunch meets, but it was good times.

    Candace and family – we were so sorry to hear of Greg’s passing; he put up a valiant fight all those years. The world is a poorer place now that he is gone, but we all still have the memories.

  7. My name may not seem familiar. I went to high school with Greg and Candace. I was very sad to learn about Greg’s passing. He was very intelligent and had many accomplishments in his short life. I had several classes with Greg and always enjoyed talking to him.

  8. I was lucky enough to work with Greg for many years. First at McDonnell Douglas and then Boeing. He was smart as a whip! But the best part about Greg was just how easy he was to work with. I sat with him once for help just before I retired and he was getting multiple emails and IM’s from multiple folks across the company asking for help on this and that. He never got flustered and everyone got their answers. Greg also never turned down any challenge and always excelled at every task and the tasks were many! From shuttle to ISS to Iridium to the NEAR mission to Eros and finally Starliner (and there were others!) Greg’s contributions were always outstanding. He fought a long hard battle and he never once complained. In fact it would be hard to know, for those that didn’t know him, that he fighting so hard. Rest in peace my friend – you will be sorely missed!
