Paul Richard Bugos passed away Sunday, April 15, 2018 at the age of 77.
Paul was born September 14, 1940 in Washington, D.C. to Stephen and Hilda Lee (Johnson) Bugos. Growing up in D.C. with his big sister Ruthie and twin Pauline, Paul loved playing basketball. He also really enjoyed riding and training horses. As he grew, he began to enjoy cars and going to races. While going to high school in Washington, D.C., Paul developed an interest in electronics, which he put to use after he graduated and enlisted in the Air Force in San Diego.
Paul met the love of his life, Velma, while at a dance. The two were married in Schertz, Texas and were blessed with 46 years of marriage. Paul loved being married and was a wonderful father to their son Stephen and daughter Carolyn. He worked very hard as an appliance repairman and forklift operator to be sure his family was well provided for. He wanted to ensure his children had the best education possible. His family always came first in his life, and he enjoyed taking his family to Washington, D.C. to visit his parents. They had a good time talking about the old days when they were first married.
Paul was a very honest man who went out of his way to help other people, especially his neighbors. He did not like people who stretched the truth. In his free time, Paul enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandkids. He was a CB and ham radio operator, and savored the time he was able to go on trail rides and take care of his horses.
Paul leaves behind his wife Velma, his son Steve, his daughter and son-in-law Carolyn and J. B. Wilson, his granddaughter Shannon Wright and her husband Lance, his grandson Scott Wilson, his great-grandson Dalton Wright, his great-grandson Cayden Wilson and his great-granddaughter Amber Wilson.
