Five years later, early Saturday morning, his earthly mission ended. Fellow tow truck drivers tell ABC 33/40 Hubbard was the type guy who went out of his way to help people."He was a hard worker. He loved his job. He loved the towing business. You've got to love it to do it," said Dwayne Kizziah, owner of Dwayne's Towing and Recovery in Tuscaloosa.Wednesday, traffic homicide investigators mapped the scene where Hubbard was killed over the weekend on Interstate 59/20.

By Eric Wildstein ewildstein@gastongazette.comHe was escorted to his final resting place by the machines that helped his company thrive in Bessemer City for almost five decades.Roy “Gay” Stinnett, 68, started A & A Grading & Hauling Inc. in 1968, shortly after the birth of his two sons Ashton and Adrian, for whom the company is named after. The company was born out of his love for the natural land, and his desire to work with it each day.Stinnett passed away last week.More than 700 people paid their respects during his funeral visitation at Sisk-Butler Funeral Home in Bessemer City. Before he was laid to rest, his casket was transported from the funeral home to Westview Gardens cemetery in Bessemer City aboard a truck hauling a John Deere bulldozer with his company’s logo.Stinnett’s grandson, Hunter, came up with the idea from a song that he liked. In the song, the musician sang about a similar sendoff for his grandfather.“Hunter said ‘We have to do that for Paw-Paw,’” said Stinnett’s daughter, Toscha Stinnett-Chandler.Gay Stinnett’s company has completed projects all over the Piedmont, including the grading and p
