We were very sorry to hear of Bubba’s passing, he was a good friend and a good father in-law too. I remember having many good time with him over the years. Randy was always there to help you if you needed him, a real good guy.
I will never forget the time I think it was summer early 80’s Larry and I were working for Randy at his house and we were slacking off a bit and he took out his rifle and shot the tail feather off of the rooster and told us that if we didn’t get working we were next…
He was only joking with us, he was an amazing marksmen with a rifle, and yes we immediately went back to work, ask Larry.
He will be missed, our thoughts and prayers go out to all his friends and family.
