Dr. Chad Patrick McHugh, son of Louis McHugh & Anne Gaydos, passed away 22 August 2021 in San Antonio, TX. Born 7 February 1952 in Pittsburgh, PA, he was raised in Texas far removed from the family tradition of coal mining. Encouraged toward public service, Chad joined ROTC and completed a Bachelor of Science at Notre Dame before he proudly flew in VA-196 for the US Navy. He returned to school & earned: Master of Science, Texas A&M; Master of Public Health, UC-Berkeley; Ph.D. Entomology, UC-Davis. During these years, Chad fell in love with Dr.Sara Kerr; together they became World Experts in research & prevention of Leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease. Preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Dan McHugh. Survived by his wife Dr.Sara Kerr, daughter Julia, son Conan, sister Kathy Kempf, and brother Tim McHugh. Chad's gruff demeanor belied the love and pride he reserved for family and close friends. We will always carry his sharp wit, respect for nature, and belief in education close to our hearts.
