I never met anyone who loved his family as much as Bubba did. That was one of the first things that endeared me to him - the way he talked about his relationship with his son. As I got to know him better, I had the privilege of spending time with Pat & Bill as well and realized that his love of family was something he learned from his wonderful parents. Goodbye, Bubbabear. It was a blessing to have you in my life. Love always, Gadget

Bubba was a friend of mine from the first day i met him. When we were kids we made Gods Eyes at his house..then later on we played in the rock n roll world for a good long time were i think he really shined! He Loved more than anyone to be around the bands. He loved the drums and the brotherhood that a band gives you. I will always see bubba alive an well in my mind because you cant stop that kind of person. He is a true friend and rock n roller. He would always say to me before I would go on stage..lets do this...go get em . He was so cool. God BLess Him,,he will be missed.

... To know a "Bradbury" was or is not to know a person. It is to know an honest and true friend. A FAMILY. You are invited into a home. Laughter, smiles, gatherings. You do not know them for a year or even twenty as I have... it is a lifetime of memories, of "moments". Billy "Bubba", had so many moments that I cannot simply explain in a few thoughts one or two, but I can simply say to all of you... Thank you for the light he brought to this world. For it is so bright that I am sure that even after it has been put out that it shall burn bright. And we will all be guided by that star, because the grace of the men in this family I know of- will shine on. ... I love you all. Nikki Murdoch

Friday night I lost an old friend, Bubba. I knew him for nearly 20 years and my wife only knew him for the 6 years she has been up here, but we will not forget him. He had a smile on his face that was infectious and would bring anyone's spirits up. He was a great person and a great friend. Thank you for all of the veggies you brought by for us from your garden. Your memories will brighten our days at Timmy's "Summer House". And the garden we're gonna start will make you proud. RIP Bubba, you will be missed. We were the lucky ones to have known you. Oh yea and Old School. Love ya man. Erik and Donna Luciano
