Guestbook

My dad Deacon Robert Bouchum was a TRUE WARRIOR. He was a hard worker starting at the age of 8 years old to help my grandparents pay for college for his sisters. After leaving the nest he ventured out to start a life of his own. He married our mom in 1960 and remained married until her passing. Around age 78 he still worked until a car wreck took a toll on his body. He lived to see the age of 93 years . Dad I really miss you and seeing you every day. You're still and will always be my baby.

Mr. Elmore, I would like to thank you for the memories you've shared. Our father was a great man in our eyes and he will be greatly missed by our entire family.

I knew Mr. Bouchum when I worked at Strohs Brewery Co. He always had a story or a joke to tell, that I enjoyed. I remember that he would drive a lady to Brookshires on the weekends, when I would run into him there we would joke with each other. I remember him telling about his son and a trip he took to California.

I knew Mr. Bouchum when I worked at Strohs Brewery Co. He always had a funny story or a joke to tell. I had a lot of respect for him and enjoyed his stories. I remember him driving a lady to Brookshires every Saturday. When I would run into him there while he was waiting for her to finish her shopping we would joke with each other. I remember him speaking of his son and a trip he took to California. Buck Elmore
