Bubba T was born June 6, 1956 in Charleston, South Carolina, a son of the late Eugene Leon Tisdale and Laura Blanton Tisdale. He was an avid fisherman and kept his "fishing holes" secret. Bubba T enjoyed music, dancing, parties and loved pets. He truly adored his daughter Melissa and never missed an opportunity to share how proud he was of her. Because of his love for cookies, he was given by Judy the nickname "Cookie Monster". Even though he was taken too soon, he lived a full and happy life. Bubba T will be remembered for his contagious laugh, big smile and kindness to help anyone in need. He is gone fishing...
