Mason Blake (Bubba) Hughes was born August 22, 2001 in Memphis, TN the son of D J and Jennifer Hardin Hughes.
Bubba was a 2020 graduate of Bartlett High School. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior on January 27, 2009 and was baptized at East Hill Baptist Church in Bartlett. Bubba loved his family dearly-he especially enjoyed watching movies with his mom and sharing TikTok videos with her, hanging out with "my dad" in the shop, and aggravating his brother and sister, of whom he was very proud. He loved to call his Nana and would occasionally ask her to bring him some supper if he didn't like what was on the family menu. Bubba enjoyed hearing his Paw tell stories from his childhood and would often share them with others. When asked where he heard that story, he would answer "Paw told me." Listening to all kinds of music, cooking on his Blackstone grill, playing with the horses, goats, and spending time with his two dogs Blue and Charlie were among Bubba's favorite activities. Everyone who knew him knew that he loved and lived life to the fullest.
Bubba departed this life on May 12, 2023 in Memphis, Tennessee at the age of 21 Years, 8 Months, 20 Days. He is survived by his parents, D J and Jennifer Hardin Hughes; a sister, Abby Hughes; and a brother, Nate Hughes, all of Rossville, TN; maternal grandparents Richard and Dot Hardin of Bartlett, TN; paternal grandfather Douglas Hughes of Germantown, TN; paternal grandmother Jill Graham and husband Larry of Bartlett, TN; two aunts, Lisa (Rick) and Kayley (Wesley); four uncles: Alex (Robin) and family, Lee, Troy, and Dalton (Robyn) and family; cousins Olivia, Maggie, and Mary Catherine; a great-aunt, Alcie Tacker and family of Bartlett, TN; and many extended family and friends.
