Served with the Sheriff’s Department from 1985-2003. He was a patrol officer, patrol supervisor and served as a School Resource Officer at Rockvale Elementary School from 1996 until his passing in 2003. Bubba left behind his wife Mary and son Zack.

These two officers were true examples of what police officers should
be in our communities. With that said they were two of the finest
SRO’s to have served, and both were loved by many children,
their families, teachers, staff and fellow officers.
