Elvin Luke Allday, Jr., known affectionately as Bubba, passed away on July 23, 2023, at the age of 64. He was born on March 7, 1959, to Elvin L. Allday, Sr. and Jeanette Richardson.

Bubba was a talented Boiler Maker Welder who dedicated his life to his craft. He took great pride in his work and was known for his exceptional skills. His dedication and commitment earned him the respect of his colleagues and the admiration of all who knew him.

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Bubba will be remembered for his larger-than-life personality. With a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh, he was always the life of the party. His caring and generous nature touched the lives of many, bringing joy and happiness wherever he went.

In his free time, Bubba was an avid hunter and fisher. He had a deep connection with nature and enjoyed spending time in the great outdoors. Racing cars was another passion that brought him much joy and excitement throughout his life.

However, above all else, Bubba cherished his family and friends. They were the center of his world, and he made sure to always prioritize spending quality time with them. Bubba was deeply committed to his relationship with his wife. He told everyone that he had never loved anyone as much as he loved Diana. Together, they were blessed to weather the storms of life with the guiding hand of Jesus.

Bubba's proudest accomplishments were undoubtedly his children. Cariana Allday "Punkin" and Elvin L. Allday, III "Trey" brought immeasurable joy to his life, and he was immensely proud of the individuals they had become. His love for his children was endless, and he treasured every moment spent with them.
