He was born on September 12, 1982. He was a 2001 graduate of Winston County High School and began his career at the Winston County Career Academy in 2005.
During his eighteen years there, Bubba grew quite a large extended family through his students. While they thought the world of him, they will never know the impact each of them left on his life and the love he had for each of them. Everyone held a very special place in his heart.
Bubba was well known for his love of classic cars, really all cars. He was always up for a good challenge. He often performed personal favors at the drop of a hat for many who loved and appreciated him dearly.
Bubba loved with his whole heart. His need to help others was deep, even if it meant bumping someone up his repair list if that would make a person's life just a little bit easier.
No matter what that need, however great or small, he was always there to lend a helping hand. He was truly a trustworthy, reliable and gracious man.
Bubba loved life, but more importantly, he loved his family and friends and was available for them. He was a friend to all. On any given day, Bubba could be found fixing a car, cruising backroads in the jeep or taking a ride in the buggy.
Wherever he went he was greeted by everyone because everyone knows Bubba and if you didn't, you surely would before he departed. He left a giant mark on the world, here in good ol' Double Springs all the way up to New York City.
