He was in the Army National Guard stationed at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas. He married Rita Darlene Dixon on November 22, 1964, in Laredo Texas. Together the couple had four children.
Bubba was an excellent chef and mechanic and had owned several restaurants and automotive repair shops during his lifetime. He was a dirt track race car driver at one point in his life and even got his wife involved in the women’s division. He was also an avid golfer. Many felt if he would have practiced more he may have made the PGA tour. One thing that Bubba was known for was his work ethic. To him, working was relaxing. He never took a vacation his entire adult life. He was also a great story teller who would usually leave his listeners in tears of laughter.
In addition to his parents, Bubba is preceded in death by his wife of almost 50 years, Rita Darlene Dixon, his daughter, Donna Darlene (Dee Dee) Dixon, his son, Joe Albert Dixon and his brother, Jerry Dixon of Oak Hill Texas.
