Obituary of Jimmy "Bub" Chapman

Jimmy Chapman (Bub), 66, of Auburndale, Florida passed away on September 3, 2023. Born in Rensselaer, Indiana to Lewis and Ida Chapman.

He was an electrician by trade. He loved the outdoors. He had a passion for fishing, as long as the wind was right that day. He would never miss the chance to go hunting. He loved his family, adored all of his grandchildren and a few good ole red dogs along the way. He was born in Indiana but spent his youth in Tennessee. He spoke of those mountains and sunsets often. 

Bub is preceded in death by his brothers, Lenis Ray and Danny Lee; grandson, Jordan  He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Norma Kay; his daughters, Kendra Johnson and Kayla Chapman; sister Charlsie Gatlin; grandchildren, Trayton Johnson, Dane Johnson, Kadence, Brayden, Kinsley. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. 

I've finished all life has for me, I've been invited to the great hunting ground, where everyday is a wondrous day to hunt and fish. Don't worry or feel sad for me, for I'm hunting with the Master of the Hunt.  We'll miss each other for some time. For all that think of me, know that I am on a great hunt and happy as can be. To those that wonder of my early farewell, tell them I've gone hunting with the Master.
