Uncle Bub was such a wonderful man. He always had a smile and was quick to ask how you were doing and how was the family. He always made me feel welcome. He loved to tell stories! You could tell that he loved his family.
Rest In Peace, Uncle Bub. I’m sure there are many open arms ready to greet you in Heaven. We will miss you.

Uncle Bub was a great, wise, and lovable man. He always offered great advice about getting an education...."It's against the law not to go; so, you might as well make the most of it while you are there. " I remember as a little girl that I would see him out in his front yard practicing his chipping and I would run out and beg him to spin me. He would take the time and spin me round and round EVERY SINGLE TIME. Ohhhhh, there are so many good memories.

Uncle Bub, I am trying to figure our what you may be doing up in heaven today, is it a baseball game with your brothers or 18 holes of golf with Tom & Danny?

Rest in peace, Bubbie! I love you and I always will.
