Bubba grew up next door to Anne Gibson (Eatherly), and since I spent a lot of time at her house, we always played with him and his sisters.  In 4th grade, at the school Valentine's Day party, Bubba presented ME with a little silver heart charm with BB + RW on the back-----I still have it!  I also remember that Frank and I hung out with him somein Memphis in the early 70s then we all lived there.  Sad to think he is gone, but at least Frank was there to greet him.

Bubba was truly one of my favorites growing up in Greenville...I loved how his big smile could light up a room! He was a wonderful friend to so many people and he will be greatly missed by all of us. Loved his family too...

I am shocked and saddened beyond words. From the 7th grade at EE Bass until our graduation from Greenville High in 1969 Bubba and I were best friends. We did almost everything together. I was always amazed at the number of people that Bubba knew. How many times did I ask, "Who was that?" and he would tell me about them. Bubba was also incredibly curious. He would become quietly serious when asking questions about something or someone. His walk and his laugh are most memorable to me. I will miss him. I was not able to attend his funeral. Mitzi and I lost our 16 year-old granddaughter in a car accident on September 25, so we simply could not handle losing Bubba too.  (Scooter)

I can't believe sweet Bubba is gone.  You're right, BC, his smile did light up a room.  He had an aura about him that instantly drew people to him -- you knew instantly he was a kind, caring and fun-loving person.

Dear Scooter -- I am so sad for you and Mitzi.  Can't imagine the pain of losing a grandchild, much less one so young and vibrant. 

All are in my prayers.

Scooter and Mitzi, I am so sorry to hear of your heartbreaking loss. We will all keep you in our thoughts and prayers.  

I hate that I was not aware of Bubba's memorial service in time to attend but I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to visit with him a lot when he was hospitalized in Jackson a few years ago...and later at our 40th reunion. 

I have loved reading all the beautifully expressed sentiments and enjoying all the wonderful memories of Bubba. He was a huge part our wonderful school experiences and he'll continue to live on in our hearts.

"Our Wonderful School Experience". Well stated Kathe, and Oh so true.

In fact, how fortunate of us to have the entire Greenville experience during that time.

Thank you to all for your kind words concerning our loss.  Scooter

Thank you all so very much. Mitzi and I have 11 grandchidren. Reagan was #2 and only sixteen. I know losses come in life, especially as we get older. It is hard to comprehend happy life without those we have loved so. I am sad for Bubba's family. I just always expected him to be part of us and with us. As I did sweet Reagan. Again, thank you for your comments, thoughts and prayers.

Very sorry to hear of Jimmy Peets passing. Had some great times playing little league baseball with him.

So sorry to hear about Jimmy Peets. I've known him since Buster Brown Park days. I was his baseball catcher during high school. He left us too soon.

William Charles Spears

I am so sad to hear of Jimmy Peets passing. Jimmy and I were baseball buddies for years. He really had a great fastball. When he threw side-armed, which was most of the time, it was hard to stand in the batter's box. He and "Rookie Coleman" will make a pretty good roster of starting pitchers.   (Scooter)

Jimmy, you will be missed.  A lot of good times have come to an end but you will not be forgotten. RIP my friend

Sorry to hear about Jimmy's passing.  We're praying for the family.

In the coming days, your local and semi-local Classmates will be working to determine your interest in a 50th Class Reunion and to what extent and detail it should be planned.

Be looking for a brief questionnaire over the next couple of days. This is designed to give us a feel for what type of Reunion activity or activities the majority of our Classmates prefer.

Stay Tuned and back Soon.

I just heard that one of my favorite people at GHS had passed away, Nancy Henderson. She was so precious and so full of life. We had some great times cheerleading together. I pray for her husband and three children. She will be missed🙏
