Our Shipmate Billy Bugg and Perry Plank Owner has taken his final voyage May 4, 2012. As it is with us all, the Perry held a special place in his heart that is witnessed through his personal photo album posted on our website some time ago. I know his son Matt had exactly the same feeling when he uncovered the Perry photos among Bill's personal affects that prompted him to contact us.
Bill was an exceptional man that will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege to know him and will be especially missed by his wife Juanita of 65 years. Beyond his passion for music that played an important role in his life, his legacy of five grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild is notably his greatest achievement.
Billy will be remembered at our New Orleans reunion during the roll call of all our shipmates that have 'sailed on' since our last reunion. His name is now entered into our Perry's ship's roster of shipmates 'gone but never to be forgotten'.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to the Bugg family.
Expressions of sympathy can be sent to:
