Millage Pugh Obituary

"I HAVE fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto them that also love His appearing." -II Timothy 4:7-8.

MR. MILLAGE EUGENE PUGH was born on SEPTEMBER 11, 1940 to the late Mrs. Lillie Pugh and the late Mr. Arthur Allen in Shubuta, MS.  He became affectionately known to all who knew him as "Bay."  On Monday, September 18, 2023, God saw fit to transition our beloved "Bay" from his earthly home to receive his eternal rest.

"Bay" was preceded in death by his parents:  Mrs. Lillie Pugh and Mr. Arthur Allen, and three brothers:  Larry Dixon, L.C. Dixon, and Willie James Dixon.
