Obituary for Trustee George J. Pugh

George James Pugh, was born June 17, 1931 and departed us peacefully, surrounded by family, friends and caretakers on August 17, 2017. George, A.K.A., “Uncle George” had a heart full of love, faith, peace, humility and a million-dollar smile that warmed your heart and filled the room. He was a very gracious man that many learned the true meaning of following Christ and what it meant to be Christ like.
George is preceded in death by his parents: Herbert Pugh, Sr. and Carrie Lee White Pugh. His siblings, Maude Pugh, Delia Pugh, Jimmie Veronica Pugh, Enola Pugh Douglas, Carrie Mae Pugh Franklin, Herbert Pugh, Jr and Charles Pugh. Nieces, Caroline Hooper, Claudia Hooper and Linda Pugh.
George leaves his true testament of true love and commitment to his soul mate and love of his life for 61 years, his wife, Lebertha Bellamy Pugh. In addition, he leaves to treasure his memory and legacy of having complete faith and trust in God to his siblings: Sallie Pugh Smith, Daisy Pugh Watts and Juanita Rachel Pugh McGee, including his foster children from Uganda, Harriet, Georgiana & Grace Joanitar Kalema, also Sr. Goretti Namutebi and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
George was an over 50-year member at Macedonia Baptist Church in Denver, CO, where he served on the Trustee Board, Choir and was a faithful servant. After leaving Denver, CO in 2015 due to declining health for he and his wife, he united with Bethlehem Baptist Church located in Pueblo, CO.
As a result of George’s smile and compassion, he touched many lives where ever he was, and with that a Memorial Service will be held in Pueblo, Colorado at Bethlehem Baptist Church in September.
Special thanks to the many family, friends, caregivers, church members that were a part of George’s life. He truly appreciated you and loved each and every one of you.
