Robert Pugh • July 5, 2022
Robert Leon Pugh, 82, of Pensacola Florida passed away on July 5th, 2022. He was born in Greenville Alabama on March 24th, 1940 to his parents Robert Leslie and Minnie Parker Pugh. He spent his last days surrounded by his family and friends.
Robert was a master carpenter for over 50 years, holding various positions but most of those years he happily worked at Seville Quarter in Pensacola until he retired in 2020. There, he was a long time member of “The Good Time Gang” and thought of them as family. Over the years he has built three houses for his family to call home, he owned his own company, he was a Construction Superintendent, and at one time he disassembled a locomotive in Pensacola and relocated it to Orlando Florida, where he reassembled it piece by piece.
He was a member of Charity Baptist Church where he spent every Sunday morning praising God. In his spare time he loved to hunt and fish, watch racing, build train tracks for his model trains, anything to do with vintage cars, and traveling with his family.
He is preceded in his death by his mother (Minnie Parker Pugh), his father (Robert Leslie Pugh), and his brother (Lonnie Brooks Pugh). He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Cecile Thrower Pugh, his children, Renee Pugh and Marcus Pugh (Connie Pugh), his grandchildren, Justin Hulen, Amanda Rostami, Austin Pugh, and Dawson Pugh. As well as his great grandchildren, Bria Hill, Sophia Hulen, MiaBella Rostami, Gianna Rostami, Jasmine Rostami, Malaya Hulen-Brown, and his sisters, Evelyn Bardin and Juanita Bardin.
The pallbearers will be his grandsons, Justin Hulen and Austin Pugh, and his nephews, Glenn Thrower, Adam Pugh, Robert Pugh, and Lonnie Pugh. Also, as honorary pallbearer, his grandson, Dawson Pugh.
The family will receive family and friends at The Pensacola Memorial Garden on Tuesday July 12, 2022 at 1:00pm. The funeral service will begin at 2:00pm.

Many prayers for all of you during your time of loss.
Such a beautiful story, he was a very talented, handsome man! I regret that I never had the opportunity to meet him, but I am blessed to know and love his beautiful daughter, Renee and Amanda, her beautiful daughter! Not to mention his great grands, Amanda’s girls! I count myself blessed to count them as “adopted” family. I can wait to meet the rest of this dear family! I have been thru similar illness with my own father and knowing that he is in Gods arms and in no pain is such a blessing to his family!
We love you so much Renee! We are with you.
Love, your tribe

Robert Pugh can be felt in every beam and brick of Seville Quarter. I have tickets to fly up to Pensacola, but got ill, and am trying to stay out of the hospital. I never could have built Seville Quarter without the help of Robert Pugh. He was a fine craftsman and a finer man.
I love you papa you will always have you in my heart forever I will never forget you I love you so much
