Steven Franklin “Bubba” Reeves

Steven Franklin “Bubba” Reeves passed away in his sleep at his home in Amarillo, Texas Tuesday, September 4,2018 at the age of 36 years, 11 months. 

He was born on Sunday, October 4,1981 in Olney, Texas. He grew up in Jacksboro, Texas and graduated from the Jacksboro High School in 2000.

At a young age, he got his nickname from his niece Tamera. Most everyone knew him as only Bubba, when people say Steven, everyone says, “Who?” Bubba was a tattoo artist and loved drawing with a very deep passion. So for those who have gotten a tattoo from Bubba, you have a piece of his heart and soul. Bubba’s greatest passions in life were his art, motorcycle, Jess (Spike Darling), his dogs, family and friends. He was a kind, gentle giant ... a free spirit who touched the lives of many ... the road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Be blessed that Bubba was a part of your life. Hold him in your hearts forever.

Bubba was preceded in death by his grandparents, Wayne and Lois Smith; Ira and Eunice Rhodes; granny Flo Pierce and his two bassett hounds, Flo and Pancho.

He is survived by his girlfriend Jess; dog Jack; his parents, Susan and Thomas Rhodes; sister, Lindy Lucus and Richard of Blue Ridge, Texas; niece, Tamera Reeves and Ryan of Sayre, Oklahoma; nephews, Franklin Reeves of Seymour, Texas; Chance Lucus of Stephenville, Texas; brothers, Troy Rhodes of Round Rock, Texas; Edward Rhodes and Melissa; sister, Sue Ervin and husband Jimmy; and several nieces and nephews, family and friends all over the U.S.A.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, September 16, 2018 at Coker Funeral Home Chapel.
