The Marshall “Bubba” Catterton third annual memorial blood drive collected 46 pints of blood from 53 possible donors recently at the Walterboro Elks Lodge.
Catterton and Casey Parrot were killed after being struck by a car three years ago. The two were attempting to remove a deer from the road hit by Catterton’s truck. Casey was killed instantly, but Bubba required 42 pints of blood during his unsuccessful fight for life.
