Raymond Pugmire passed away peacefully into the loving arms of his dear wife Afton with
his children by his side on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, in St. George, Utah at the age of
88. Dewey was born November 14, 1922 in Montpelier, Idaho to Raymond David and Ettie
Lorenia Bridges Pugmire. He married Afton Mary Johnson of Georgetown, Idaho on August 17,
1948 in Montpelier, Idaho. They were sealed for all eternity in the Logan Temple on
October 28, 1958.
Dewey grew up in Montpelier, Idaho with a love for the outdoors, boxing, and watching out
for his brothers and sisters. Dewey was honored to serve his country as a US Army
infantryman during WWII where he fought in Normandy, northern France, and the Rhineland as
part of General Patton's third army. His life continued in service to his Heavenly
Father, his family, and to his fellowmen. Dewey was an active member of the LDS church
where he served faithfully in many callings and humbly honored his priesthood. Dewey was
no respecter of persons and loved and served people from all walks of life with the same
sincerity. There was not a person who met him who did not deeply respect his character. He
sacrificed much of his own needs and wants to serve his family and friends. There was not
a person living who could out work him. He was tireless in living and working towards what
Dewey is survived by his five awesome children: Michael (Darla) Pugmire; Ann (William)
Graff; Cathy (Joel) Olson; Lindsay (Esther) Pugmire; Tammi (Rob) Thomson. He is also
survived by his Brother, Jerry Pugmire; Sister, Betty Rae (Doward) Bronson; 21
grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.
His family is deeply grateful for the loving care he received at Ridgeview Gardens
assisted living center and Rocky Mountain Hospice care.
Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday Oct 8th at the Morningside Stake Center
881 South River Road St. George, Utah. A viewing will take place at the same location just
prior to the services from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. Interment will be at Tonaquint Cemetery
