    My heart goes out to Bubba’s family. I’ve known him for a while now being one of the truck drivers for MLipsitz & Co. We would always chit chat while he was waiting to get his truck loaded. I was very saddend to hear of his passing. I will miss our talks for sure. May our Lord be with his family and friends!

  13. Bubba was the drummer in the very first band I was an “official” member of back in 1989 called “Lonestar Legend”. We won the Battle of the Bands at the old Cody’s on Highway 84 only a few months after playing together. He was a super nice guy and a great friend to have. It is sad to hear that he has passed on.

    My prayers are with his family, friends and loved ones. Rest in Peace Big Guy. We all love you and will miss you very much!!!

    God Bless,
    Ron Shumate
