Born November 22, 1931, in Barger Springs, WV, he was the son of the late Percy Bruce and Mable C. Dunn Halloran. Chubby started milking cows when he was 9 years old.

Chubby loved mowing grass and working outside during his retirement years, and he especially enjoyed working with his brother-in-law, Jim Monroe, at the nursery.
