He was preceded in death by a granddaughter Warren Brooke and a brother Rupert G. Pugh.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America or the Ronald McDonald House, Greenville, in memory of Paul.

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, July 22 at 2 p.m. at Pleasant Grove Church of Christ. The family will receive friends at the church and later at the home place of Mack and Sandra Carawan, Fairfield.

The family would like to give special thanks to Hospice Care of South Carolina for the care they provided.
