Charles V. Dugo Obituary
Charles V. "Charlie" Dugo of Longmont, CO died peacefully Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012, surrounded by his children. Charlie was born Feb. 19, 1926 in Chicago, IL to the late Charles and Henrietta (Picchiottino) Dugo. A member of the Lane Tech High School Class of 1944, he graduated early to begin boot camp in Biloxi, MS. He served with the Army Air Corps in the European Theater during World War II. On July 21, 1951, he married Angeline Zaralo in Chicago, IL and together they made their home in Chicago and Northlake, IL, Bismarck, ND, Valparaiso, IN, and Longmont, CO. Charlie began his professional career in the "beer business" and remained a loyal employee of Anheuser Busch for 35+ years. He was respected by his colleagues for his business acumen and served as an advisor to many long after his retirement in 1986. Charlie will long be remembered for his quick wit and ingenious sense of humor. His journey included raising his six children, traveling, camping, and boating with his wife, trap shooting and hunting with his son, and sitting around the table "visiting". He made a mean meatball and was the best Pinochle player west of the Mississippi. Preceded in death by his loving wife of 54 years, Charlie is survived by his six children, Carol Schmid of Dallas, Caryn Dugo of Aurora, Linda Dugo and her husband Beau Jones of Dallas, Susan Russell and her husband Mark of Nashville, Charles Dugo and his wife Helena of Tampa, and Laurie Dugo of Longmont. He was the grandpa of Justin Schmid, Shane and Kent Russell, John Jeffrey Jones, and Katie Dugo. He is also survived by his sister, Kathy Umlauf of Barrington, IL. Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Howe Mortuary in Longmont, CO. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012. Visitation will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by the service at 11 a.m. Friends are invited to join the family for a reception at the conclusion of the service. Please share at
