So very sorry for the loss of Bubba. Dad sure did love him . I remember as a little kid thinking he sure does look like Elvis, so any time that dad said I am going to see Bubba , I would always say, you mean Elvis!!! Prayers for the entire family as you navigate through this loss.


Sorry for your loss i will miss Bubba and his mute button.

Bubba was a great and kind man who treated me like I was family every time I saw him. He would always take the time to tell me in detail his “secrets” to successful fishing. Though some of them seemed to be a little on the unusual side, each of the secrets he shared with me have been productive from time to time. I’ll always be grateful for Bubba’s kindness and wisdom. God now has Bubba in his hands and is probably hearing a good fishing story. Thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God hold your hand through this time of sorrow and give you comfort in the days, weeks and years to come.
