Lucy and family, my deepest sympathy for your loss. I am so sorry that I was out of town and out of touch for a few days and did not learn of Bubba's death in time to attend the funeral. All of us old ruggers lost a great friend, and the ARC lost one of its strongest and most dedicated supporters. May you find peace in knowing that he was loved and respected by so many.

First of all, let me express my deep sorry for the unexpected death of our dear friend Bubba. I extend my condolences to all Austin Blacks Rugby Club players and friends as well as to his family, Lucy, Kimberly and Christopher

It is a great pity for us to lose such a great, caring and outstanding friend.

I met Bubba at Martin L. King high school field back in 72 when looking for people who enjoy rugby. I was scare and did not know if I could fit. Walking around the field I hear... ¿Hey you want a beer, I reject, it was too early in the morning for me, then he said, ¿do you play rugby?

From then on, we became close friends, he was just an easy going fellow always preoccupied for others and great third half entertainer at the bar. By the way he taught me in a few weeks to drink beer in the morning.

A couple of year ago, for the 50th anniversary of Austin Blacks he located me after a long search on the web and invited me to assist at any rate, he was very convincing. On top of that he insisted to stay at his house with his family (thank you LUCY). I had the privilege to spend a full week together, it was a loving experience unforgettable.

A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief.

Please accept my sincere condolences. I would love to be present saying farewell in person and hugging you one more time We will never forget you. We will pray for you as you prayed for us. May God give you eternal rest.

Love you my dear friend Bubba Cochrane RIP

I do not recall Bubba ever saying anything with animosity. To me he always greeted me with a big smile and talked positive about everything. One of the good guys of the club.
Lucy I am very sad for your and your family's loss.
