Robert L. “Bob” Hugus

On February 15, Robert “Bob” Hugus, 73, of McCandless passed away peacefully at home. Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He will be dearly missed. Bob had the amazing ability to make everyone around him feel special, loved, and important. He had the best laugh and gave the greatest hugs.

Bob was a very proud United States Veteran. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1967 and served with pride until he was honorably discharged in 1972. He worked hard as a Marine and became a Sergeant and expert marksman during his time in the service. Bob truly was “Marine Tough” while at the same time being a caring and loving man.

Bob loved to be active in his retirement and work with his hands. Tinkering with tools, making furniture, working on his truck, and doing renovations in his home were some of his favorite things to do.

Bob was an avid Pittsburgh Pirates fan. He loved going to the games, watching them on TV, or listening to them on the radio. He often wore his Pirates hat with pride and believed “this could be their year”.

Bob is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Karen (Dougherty Obringer). He is also survived by his five children, Michelle (David) Atkinson of McCandless, Matthew Hugus of Cranberry Township, Justin (Laura) Obringer of Washington D.C., Kevin Obringer of San Diego, and Jack Obringer of Chicago. He is also survived by his brothers, William (Patricia) Hugus of McCandless, Edward Hugus of Cranberry Township, and sister, Ruth Hugus, of Pittsburgh. Bob was an amazing “Pap” to his six grandchildren: Nicholas (Ashley) Atkinson of Franklin Park, Nicole Atkinson of McCandless, Jackson, Carter, and Lincoln Hugus of Cranberry Township, and Cole Obringer of Washington D.C. He was also a “Great Pap” to his two great-grandchildren, James Benjamin Atkinson and “baby boy” Atkinson, coming soon. He will also be greatly missed by his dog, Sidney Clare. He was preceded in death by his mom, Lillian (Goerlich) Hugus. Funeral services will be private.

  • Michelle Hugus Atkinson

    I can’t believe you are gone. My Dad with nine lives. ❤️ You taught me all of the important things about life: do the right thing, be kind, love with your whole heart, have forgiveness. You’d tell me each day is a gift and a bonus and you were right. I often find myself asking “what would my Dad do” in situations throughout life. You were always there for me and our family. You are and have always been my hero. Your love, support, and wisdom are irreplaceable. You were the best Dad, Pap, and Great Pap ever. I love you and I miss you Dadoots. 😘😘😘

    Bob was a great cousin. I remember being so proud of him in his uniform. The best memories were the fun we had at our grandmother’s. My heart goes out to his wife and family as they navigate this difficult time.

  • Edward D. Hugus

    I couldn’t want more from a big brother. I truly enjoyed our Saturday AM breakfasts, even though they weren’t as frequent as before. You will be forever in my heart and my thoughts. Thank you for being a great brother and friend. Love you, I’ll miss you.

  • William Bud Hugus

    I like to remember him as always doing the right thing no matter what the cost to himself or others.
    I would hitch hike down to Paris Island several times when I was 16 just to ride back to Pgh. when he would come home on leave. We also worked together at Rorich Toyota for a short time.
    We may have lost touch for a bit but he is and always be in my heart. Miss ya Brother
