The world lost a great man, father, friend and police officer when Bubba was taken from us. I had the privilege of meeting Bubba years ago while we were attenging the USBP Academy and we were roommates. Although our time there was short, Bubba became a great friend. I was always inspired to be a better man and father by Bubba's example. He was, and is, a true hero. Bubba, rest in peace my friend. You have earned your place at His table.

To Bubba's loving family, friends and colleagues, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers. May God's loving embrace and the power of the Holy Spirit continue to carry you through these difficult times.
