About Bub

A benefit in honor of Charles “Bub” Bleakley

A 5K charity event taking place in Port Orange, FL. All proceeds to be donated to the American Heart Association and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Eternal optimist, Charles “Bub” Bleakley, passed away at his home on March 5, 2012. He bravely fought an ongoing battle with heart disease that lasted for over 30 years. He endured three bypass surgeries and an aortic heart valve replacement. He was our best friend and greatest inspiration.

Bub loved nothing more than spending time with his family and friends. He was a positive force and a sphere of influence who valued every opportunity life had to offer. He was an avid ATV rider who loved gardening, carpentry, inventing, and swimming in the pool with his four grandchildren. He was a man of ideas and great charisma who enjoyed life to the fullest every day. He was an amazing role-model with an infectious personality who touched the lives of everyone he encountered. He was a “one of a kind” father and husband with a radiant personality, who always remembered what is important. He understood what it meant to be a good person, and he taught us that the most important thing in life is being together.


Words alone cannot express all the joy he brought into our lives. He was the life of the party, and he filled every room with countless smiles and nonstop laughter. He was always positive, always active, always energetic, and always about having fun and doing what’s right. He never stopped giving and was always open-minded enough to give others the benefit of the doubt. He will forever be our hero, and not a moment goes by that we don’t think about him. We will cherish all the fabulous memories, and we will always celebrate his life and all the greatness he brought into this world. He made us the happiest family we could ever be, and we are all so grateful. We consider ourselves the luckiest people in the world to have him as our father. I can’t even begin to explain how much we miss him, and how much he means to us.
