The son of Walter and Eugenia Redd, Bubba was born December 6, 1946 in Meeker where he grew up with a host of siblings. He graduated from Meeker High School and devoted a portion of his career serving in the U.S. Army. He retired from Imperial Brown in Prague, Okla. and continued working there several days each week prior to his death.
Along with his military service and time spent living in Meeker, Bubba spent time living in Oklahoma City and Illinois. Through the years, his relationships brought him love (Ollie Redd, Rose Barnett, and Rose Cato), with three children (Kerry, Kimberly, and Krystal) added to his family. Following the passing of Ollie, Bubba spent time nurturing his relationship with Wanda “Windy” Jones, who frequently accompanied him at family reunions and gatherings.
Along with attending the Meeker Church of Christ and following Biblical principles, Bubba adopted the values of the Masons District 4. He was known for the Masons Saturday fish fry fundraiser where he served up “goodness” each month accompanied by his nephews (Tony and Teddy). Bubba enjoyed watching NASCAR races (viewed in person with his nephew Tim) and spending time with his family, where his fish frying abilities were integrated into annual family reunions.
Bubba departed this life on March 8, 2019 in Oklahoma City at the age of 72; he was surrounded by the love and presence of family who deeply loved him.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Walter and Eugenia Redd; his wife, Ollie Redd; his son, Kerry Redd; and his sisters, Jane Redd, Tonya Williams, and Arletha Zukowski. He leaves to cherish his memory: two daughters, Kimberly Redd of Oklahoma City, Okla. and Krystal (Mason) Parks of Moline, Ill.; eight sisters, Sylvia Shelton of Chandler, Ariz., Oletha (Edgreal) Wallace of Galesburg, Ill., Lena (Darnell) Davis of Chandler, Okla., Shelia (Dennis) Whitfield of Meeker, Okla., Tellia Redd of Oklahoma City, Okla., Rachel (John) Redd-Singleton of Edmond, Okla., Telonda (Robert) Meyers of San Diego, Calif., and Bianca (Jeff) Redd-Remigio of San Diego, Calif.; four brothers Harold Redd (Joyce) of Memphis, Tenn., Tucson Redd of Oklahoma City, Okla., Keith Redd of Shawnee, Okla., and Maurice Redd of Shawnee, Okla.; and Wanda Jones of Meeker, Okla., along with a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and admirers.
