Chris “Bubba” Huntsman, 58, passed away on July 9, 2019, at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. He was born in Corning, Iowa, on December 16, 1960, to Richard and Norma Huntsman.

Bubba worked as a foreman and supervisor for The Concrete Company in Des Moines. He was very proud of his work. To him this wasn’t only a job, but a family. He took great joy in mentoring each and every one of his co-workers. Bubba had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. One of his greatest accomplishments was his 16 years of sobriety. His daughter, Brooke was his pride and joy. Bubba also enjoyed cooking for his family and friends.

Chris is survived by his daughter, Brooke Huntsman; siblings, Pam Sandy (Lee), Jackie Greene (Mark), Jeff Huntsman (Lyndsay), Tim Huntsman (Kathy) and Jill Huntsman; special niece and Goddaughter, Chrissy Raskie Jessen, along with many other nieces and nephews; his cats, Baby and Itty Bit.
