Bubba was a vibrant boy who was very friendly to everyone. He was a student at the Athens Area School District, in Mr. Lane’s 5th grade class at SRU. Bubba was very intelligent and from the time he was small, he idolized his great-grandpa, Francis Johnston, which is why his goal was to join the Navy to follow in his footsteps.
