To the Lee Family. so sorry to hear about Bubba. Many years ago I remember him as a young man always working the Flying L Arena and with the livestock.

Sorry for the loss of a true Cowboy and wonderful man. He will be missed by so many. My prayer go out to the Lee family.
Man what can you say about our ol' friend Bubba Lee, he was a fixture in rodeo in Arkansas for decades, as was his father. I remember one time Bubba was going to a rodeo with me at Searcy and he got some bulls up for us to practice on before we went. I did not even know he was sick but it looks like he had peace when Christ called him home, what a kind soul he was, happy trails my freind.
I am deeply sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Bubba will be missed by young and old alike - he was a man with many friends. Find strength in the fact that you will see him again. I'm sure that he will be patiently waiting to greet you with that big smile and a warm hello, as he has done for so many people.
I am so sorry for your loss. Bubba will truly be missed - He had such a caring soul, always making sure others felt welcome at the Flying L and making sure that they were enjoying their time there. He was always so very helpful to the children and sharing his love and excitement for the sport. He will be missed by many.

"Bubba" will be forever present in the thoughts and memeories of countless rodeo fans around this community. He loved and knew bulls and could have easily been know as the "bull whisperer". His kindness and respect for others was a characteristic to be cherished that few people have in today's society.The last text I send him said "We don't know what tomorrow holds but we know who holds our tomorrow". Bubba's tomorrow has come and he is now in the arms of Jesus. We love you Bubba.
Bubba will be greatly missed by all that knew him. I feel lucky to be able to call Bubby a friend. To the family my prayers are with you GOD will see you through.
I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you in my prayers.
We are praying for the peace ya'll need ! The Henley's

Joyce and family lease accept my condolenses on the loss of your brother. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Our sympathy goes to all of Bubba's family. We haven't seen you in several years, but often think of back in the Rodeo days. I first met Bubba in 1974 at the Plainview Rodeo. In fact, he introduced Donnie and me. He told me that he had a friend (a bullrider) he wanted me to meet that Saturday night. So, as soon as Donnie got to Plainview, he hunted me up and introduced us. We were married in 1976. We are forever grateful to Bubba. You all special to us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.
Sorry for your loss.
Ms Kris & Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Bubba was such a good guy. I remember all the great times we all had as kids, spending a lot of our young lives up there at the Flying L Ranch. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. It is so great to hear that Bubba had Became Reborn. May God Bless Him and you all. Dickey Goss

Barbara, Joyce and the rest of the Lee family. We are so sorry to hear of your loss. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Bubba was my friend for our entire lives. He was always so kind and polite. He stopped by to see me often and was always smiling.We talked one afternoon about his salvation and I know where he is. I am thankful that some day I will get to sit down and talk with him again and knowing he isn't in anymore pain gives me great peace for him. He is now in the presence of the Master and bathing in His love.I am thankful to have called Bubba my friend, and will only say farwell untill we meet again.
There has never been a better man to come out of MV. Bubba was a true friend to our family and will be greatly missed.
