Ronald Lee Chandler

October 4, 1973 — April 8, 2020

Ronald Lee Chandler ““Bubba”” left this world on April the 8th, 2020. “Bubba” was born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. He went to Okmulgee high school and continued to live the rest of his life in Okmulgee, remaining close to his family and friends. He was preceded in death by grandparents Martha l. Bigelow-McBee and William S. McBee and grandfathers James “Dick” Chandler and Buford Richardson.

Bubba lived his life to the fullest. He created many firsts in the memories of so many. The first child, the first grandson, the first nephew, the first cousin, the first friend, the first uncle, the first father and grandfather. He never met a stranger. His smile and laugh were contagious. He loved to fish, especially catfishing on the banks of rivers, and lakes. He loved wheeling and dealing at the flea markets, but most of all he loved his family. He was the gentle giant whose heart was so much bigger than life he loved snuggling his momma up close and telling her ‘you are disappearing” as he hugged her up close. Taken too soon but leaving everyone with the best lifetime memories until we see him again.

Bubba temporarily leaves behind his mother, Kathey Lynne McBee-Chandler, his father, James Ronald Chandler, a sister, Katrina Lynne Chandler, niece Diamond Harrington, nephews include, Rushon chandler, Jimmy Grummitt II, and Jacob Grummitt, four step-children Matthew Palmer, Katina Palmer, Kristy Palmer and Christian Palmer, several grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, great-nieces and nephews and his grandmother Dorothy Richardson as well as numerous friends.

Friends and family are invited to come write down their memories of Bubba on a card to share with the family. Doing so will allow the family to hold onto those memories in the days and weeks to come as everyone grieves the loss of Bubba. Memory cards can be received from Schaudt’s Okmulgee Funeral Service from 1:00 – 5:00 PM on Thursday, April 16, 2020. A Celebration of Life service will be held at a future date and time.
