Charles “Bubba” Kreiser, 61, went home to be with Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior on October 2nd, 2022, at Orange Park Medical Center from complications after open heart surgery.
Bubba was born on December 7th, 1960, at NAS Jacksonville Hospital to Charles and Phyllis Kreiser. He spent his childhood on the Westside of Jacksonville, FL. and graduated from Forrest High School in 1979. He was an auto mechanic for 35 years until his retirement in 2007, spending the last 15 years of that with Mike Shad Ford.
Bubba loved Harley Davidson motorcycles and was the membership director of the Harley Owners Group of Adamac in Orange Park. He rode his motorcycle as much as possible. One of his favorite memories was being able to ride the Tail of the Dragon which was on his bucket list. If Bubba was your friend, you know that 90% of his wardrobe was Harley gear and he always wore his chain wallet. He also had a love for deep sea fishing.
Bubba’s love for family was unconditional. He was always there when you needed him. His son CB and grandkids were the light of his life. At every family get together you could count on Bubba to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
He met his wife Pennie where he was receiving kidney dialysis and the rest was history. They were married on June 16th, 2007. Pennie was the love of his life. She was his best friend, and he was hers. Their love and devotion to one another was on full display for the world to see whenever they were together.
Bubba touched so many lives and will be sorely missed.
Bubba is survived by his loving wife Pennie Allen Kreiser, son Charles B. (CB) and daughter-in-law Meghan (AJ), daughter Christina, grandchildren Charlie, Heidi, Dakota, Renaesmae (Reya), and Nathaniel, brother Gary and sister-in-law Gerri, sister Terri, nephews Little Gary and Chuck, and niece Kacey. He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Chuck, and sister Janie.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday October 8th, 2022, at 55065 Countree Life Way, Callahan, Florida.
In Lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to the Organ Donation and Transplant Association of America in Bubba’s honor.
