Bubba was a 2006 graduate of Plainfield Central High School.
He joined the US Marine Corps right away and after completing
basic training he served two tours in Iraq. Bubba spent
countless hours working on cars with his dad, and was currently
restoring his '68 Chevelle. He also loved spending time riding
his Yamaha motorcycle and enjoying the many freedoms in life
that he fought to preserve for all Americans. He always enjoyed
spending time with his sister, whether they were shooting pool,
kayaking or just talking about what was going on in each other's
lives. Most of all Bubba was a true friend. He possessed a heart
of gold and generously gave anything he had to someone who
needed it more than he did. He was proud of who he was, who he
became and proud of the years he gave to his country.
