To the family of "Bubba" Usry. Bubba Usry was one of the finest men I've ever known. Intelligent, even tempered, kind to all, a father, a husband, a Christian, a college graduate, and a Veteran of the United States Military.

The impact he has had in the Ellaville/Schley County community will be surely missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family.

Sincerely, Tommy Barnes
