Bubba was a bundle of energy at every Panthers Home game. We have made hundreds of laps around the gridiron on game day. A great coworker at every training camp at Wofford College. Your great laugh and amazing stories will surely be missed. Even those stories that you embellished just a tad.
Ronnie, Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Bubba will truly be missed by the Bojangles' Special Events crew. Memorial Stadium days, Panther games, Wells Fargo Golf, you were always there with a smile, a big hug and a "hello sweetie". Althought I knew you were happy to see us, I knew deep down you were hungry!! We will all miss you Bubba. Our thoughts and prayers to the family. Joyce.......

Bubba was certainly a most unforgettable character. From the time I first met him at Wofford back in 2013 until the last time I spoke with him, Bubba never failed to bring a smile to my face. I reflect back on numerous conversations discussing philosophies and life in general which I was always very thankful for because Bubba always taught me something. His unique perspectives formulated by his varied experiences were treasures. Bubba and Ronnie will always be a special part of my "Charlotte" life. Ronnie, your Dad was a wonderful man and he will live on through you. My life has certainly been enriched knowing you all. My memories of Bubba will always warm my heart. God Bless you Bubba

My memory of Bubba is when I started at Show Pros the second year of Panther Season I met this little short man with a big heart who loved on me from day one, he made sure I didn't work hard because he would laugh and say yeah "I know that you old so I am gonna take care of my seniors " and for six years he did just that he would often invite us to different things but me I would pass . This man had such a big smile on his face even when they (the workers) would upset him he will be walking -running trying to get there ,come on I got to get it, I would say slow down he would always say no honey we got to get it . I thank God for the Show Pro family it was bittersweet when Ihad to part but my friend (Bubba ) understood where God was taking me and I had to get it!, when I heard of his passing I was sadden but I do understand that I to must go one day. He will truly be missed!

Panthers football season will not be the same without Bubba! Win or lose, he was always there to greet us with a smile and a joke. I will miss him so much and know how much he will truly be missed by all others he came in contact with. Love to his family during this difficult time.
