Adolph “Bubba” Pfeffer passed away peacefully on November 15, 2021.
Born in Houston, TX, he was educated at St. Anne’s Elementary School, St Thomas High School, The University of Texas, and graduated from the University of Houston while raising his first rice crop. He was deeply involved in family, rice milling and farming, banking, Texas history and The University of Texas football. Those who knew him remember his love for Waller County, myriad of friends, infectious and humorous conversations, dogs, planting and nurturing trees at the farm, and his ‘my word is my bond’ honor. His greatest and deepest attribute was his love of God.
