Eugene Raymond “Pud” Hugus, 86, of Wheeling, WV passed away on April 2, 2022. He was
born April 20, 1935. He was married to his loving wife and comedic partner, Ruth “Teeny”
Hugus for 63 beautiful years.
He was preceded in death by his mother Nellie Hugus, his wife Teeny, daughter Charlene,
brother Robert Hugus, and brother-in-law Charles “Buddy” Jacovetty.
Strong and handsome, he was known by many and loved by all. His dry humor and wit could
bring anyone to laughter and tears. He enjoyed keeping his car immaculate and clean, daily
drives while listening to his favorite crooners, and being a semi-professional gambler. He was
the go-to handyman for the whole family, a lover of all sports, and was the best pool player
you’d ever meet. He was a lifelong Cave Club member and retired from McCann Distributing
after 30 years. He was a man who couldn’t be bothered to sit still for long and enjoyed
bartending even after retirement.
He is survived by his daughters Darlene Hugus and Charlotte “Charshy” Bryan, brother Gregory
Fedczak, sister-in-law Charlotte Jacovetty, grandchildren Clayton (Molly) Dietrich, Hunter
Bryan, Chloé Bryan, Caleb Bryan. Many nieces and nephews, great-granddaughters, and his
furry best friend Grizzy.
Family and friends will be received on Wednesday, April 13 from 4-8 p.m. at Altmeyer Funeral
Home, 1400 Eoff St., Wheeling, WV, where a funeral service will be held Thursday, April 14, at
11:30 a.m. Entombment at Mount Calvary Cemetery in the Garden Mausoleum will follow.
Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
A tall can of Miller Lite should be toasted in memory and in honor of one of the greatest men to
have ever lived.

Sorry to hear about Pud. I worked with him at McCann Distributing and he was a hard worker. He had a funny wit about him. We were neighbors on Kettler Avenue. Drank a few Miller Lites together. I will mis him. RIP

I’m glad he’s with your mom. He was surrounded here on earth with love, and now in heaven.
