Charles L. Pugh, 77, died at home in the early morning hours of March 23rd, 2020 after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer. He was born June 19, 1942 in Roanoke, Virginia, the son of Nicholas W. Pugh, Sr. and Louise F. Pugh.
Charlie was very proud of his education, his Naval service, the various ways he served the communities where he lived throughout his life, and most especially his family. The work that he did early in life as an investment banker allowed him and his family to make his dream of moving to Mount Desert Island, Maine a reality. Since that time, Charlie made it a priority to live life to its fullest and help in any way he could for others to be able to do the same. One of his most recent and greatest passions was being a DJ hosting programs of the music that he loved at WERU community radio.
Charlie is survived by his cherished wife of 56 years, Patricia (Duncan) Pugh, who was by his side for every adventure in their lives together; his brother, J. Tyler Pugh, Sr. of Roanoke, Virginia; his beloved daughters and their husbands, Sherri and David Wilson, of Lanesboro, Massachusetts and Davonne Pappas and Ted Keultjes, of Mount Desert, Maine; his treasured six grandchildren whom he adored: Logan, Molly, Jane, Reiley, Ella, and Samuel; and his niece and nephew of Virginia.
A celebration of Charlie’s life will be held at a later time when we can gather together safely.
In the meantime, in lieu of flowers if you would like to remember Charlie with a gift, please donate to WERU Community Radio P.O. Box 170 East Orland, Maine 04431. Condolences may be expressed at

I always enjoyed talking music with Charlie when we crossed paths at WERU. Charlie and Pat are two of the kindest souls on earth. RIP, Charlie. I'll miss hearing your voice coming over the airwaves.

Dear Pat, I just received my copy of the Islander and read the sad news of your loss of Charlie. I know it has been a long road for both of you in the good times and the bad. The fact that you have always been there for each other speaks volumes about your special relationship. I picture him joining my parents in a better place.
Please know you are in my heart and I pray that your grief can be lifted by the wonderful memories you share for so many years. I remember the concert last summer when we were together and exchanged hugs.
Charlie and I send our love and hope to see you later this summer.
Kathy and Charlie Cepeda

Pat ~ Loretta shared the news of your husband, Charlie, and I want you to know I am thinking of you and your family. I have such fond memories of you, Aunt Edna, and Uncle Grey, back in the day when my family would visit Fincastle. I'm happy you have had a great life in a wonderful marriage. Enjoy your time with your daughters and grandchildren. (My husband, Charlie, died in 2008. My two sons and my grandson mean everything to me.)
Much love to you from your cousin.
Lydia (Grey) Powell Mugler
