A Tribute to my Big Brother
My Big Brother Bubba (Val Kenneth Mayers) was born on Sunday April 10, 1932 in Lafayette, Louisiana. He was the second born of five kids to his mother, Florence Isabelle Smith Mayers, and his father, Leon Bernard Mayers.
At Lafayette High School Bubba was an amazing athlete, Track Star, State Champion Boxer, All State Football Player, and the best Fisherman and Hunter there could ever be.
After graduating from College (SLI) in Lafayette, Louisiana Bubba joined the Air Force, served his tour of duty and came back to Lafayette and opened Val’s Restaurant (Serving the best food ever!).
He went on to have an extremely successful career as an Insurance Salesman. Bubba was the best Brother anyone could ever have, and I just loved him more than anything. He died on Saturday August 22, 2020 in Gulf Shores, Alabama. I miss him! He was my Ideal. And although I’m in no hurry, I do look forward to seeing him in Heaven.
