The unassuming town of Rankin hosted hundreds of people in one place for the funeral of beloved Upton County Sheriff Deputy Billy "Bubba" Kennedy. "Bubba was a protector — not only for his loved ones, but for everyone he met," Kennedy's brother-in-law, Barry Portman, said. "He was never afraid, and that's why we're here today."
