    Uncle Bubba was a Great Brother, Uncle, He had a Good Relationship with my Father, James Rutledge St., They loved and respected each other. We very rarely seen him but I always knew when he was coming over to visit because I would hear him when he turned on to the Street, He would be riding his Motorcycle and the music was turned up Loud
    and he was so Proud of his Ride, RIP Uncle Bubba , Our Condolences to his Family, Continued prayers for all.

    Uncle Bubba was a rare breed. Taught me a lot about working on cars. And he loved his tasters choice instant coffee and white rice back in the day. Oh, and Miller with salt. And Hardy Johnson trips trying to find the lost Spanish gold digging around with a dozer. If you were in his circle he’d give the shirt off his back. Hadn’t seen him since probably 91’.
    Lots of memories. See you again amigo

    My uncle was an great man. He never met a stranger and when he loved you you knew it. He was so funny with all his tales and jokes. I loved listening to the stories of his childhood. Him and my mother were close, mom would hunt him down if she hadn’t heard from him in awhile. He moved in with me and mom and stayed for years. We had a awesome time together, playing Pig with dice or Skipbo. Him am mom would drink coffee all day. He loved her grandkids just like they were his. I remember him chasing Embrie and Joey in the first yard it was so much fun. My grand kids loved him as if he was their grandpaw.
    Uncle Bubba loved his children, I often heard stories about all his girls and his grand babies. I’m so thankful that he got to visit with His daughter Tina and her best friend Holly, the weeks before he got his wings. My Uncle was a great man. I called him my rich Uncle we laughed about it, but he is rich now he walks the golden streets of heaven. He’s with all that has gone before him. I Praise God for the time I had him with me
