As so many have commented, Bubba has not been on ES for some time. While Bubba was a huge presence on the board, he respected his private life a great deal.
There are many of us who are fearing the worst. While we don't know 100%, and might never know for sure, there is quite a bit of evidence to suggest that the worst might have happened.
I would ask you to all keep Bubba and his family in your thoughts and prayers. A great Redskins fan and a great dude.
We are deeply saddened to inform you that we have confirmed that Bubba passed away on March 16, 2010. He was 45. He is survived by his wife and two sons. This is a matter of public record. Out of respect for his privacy, we will not offer any more details, and we know you all will respect that.
This is a very sad day. Rest In Peace, Bubba. We love you.
