-

On Tuesday, December 15, 2020, Hubert “Bud” Santos, of Cleveland, TX, loving husband and father of three, passed away at age 82.

Bud was born on February 28, 1938 in Zwolle, LA to Phillip and Christene (Procell) Santos. On January 24, 1959, he married Shirley (Ellis) Santos, his wife of nearly 63 years. Together they raised two daughters, Brenda and Amanda, and a son, Gary.

Bud was a talented drummer and played with stars such as George Jones, Jeanie C Rylie, and Johnny and Edgar Winter. He was also passionate about wildlife and trained Cardinals and Squirrels to eat peanuts from his hand when he whistled. He was also known for his love of Elvis and colorful clothing. He never went anywhere without matching from head to toe.

Bud was preceded in death by his father, Phillip and his mother, Christene. He is survived by his wife, Shirley; his children, Brenda (Santos) Myers, Amanda (Santos) Burks and Tony Freeland, and Gary and Elizabeth Santos; his brother Bobby and Sissy Santos; and sister, Shirley (Santos) Taylor; his grandchildren, Joe, Justin, Josh, Amy, Kaitlyn, and Grayson; his great grandchildren, Dyanne, Angel, Ruby, Benjamin, Malakai, Ean, Bruce, Scarlette, Christian, Falicity, and Christi; and several nieces and nephews.

RIP Uncle Bud! I will never forget you bringing my brother Randy into playing the drums. Feeding the cardinal and squirrels out of your hand, your love for music as we all have and your Yorkie dog “Elvis” 😍

I hope you and Randy are in Heaven playing the drums together and Jenna and Roger “Bubba” are watching!

Until we meet again!!
