John "Skip"'s Story
John "Skip" Joseph Bugbee Sr., 86, joined the Lord in Heaven on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
Mourning the loss are his wife of nearly 67 years, Dorothy, and his children John "Skippy" Bugbee Jr. (Luanne), Linda Hawke and Penny Bowers (Jerry). Also feeling this great loss are his grandkids, Nicole, Aaron, Marissa, Nathan, Jessica and Nicki, as well as great grandsons Dylan and Lennon.
By trade, Skip was an automotive graphics designer but in truth he was so much more: a proud veteran, religiously devoted, quick witted, loyal, strong in his convictions, a great grandfather, grandfather, father and husband. Whether he was laughing along with family over a game or praying over a meal in the dining room, he was steadfastly by his wife's side. With never a cross word about anyone, he will forever be remembered for his easy smile and infectious laugh. The world lost an amazing man but a tremendous guardian angel has now been gained. Rest in peace, Papa.
