Bugg, Richard H.-Buddy

Richard Hobert Bugg
May 13, 1942 – April 4, 2024

Richard Hobert Bugg was born May 13, 1942, in Enid Oklahoma to Hobie Bugg and Opal (Fogleman) Bugg. He was the youngest of four siblings and the only boy. Buddy grew up in Enid and graduated from Enid High School with the class of 1960. He was a member of the track and football teams. In July of 1963 he married Betty Fay Tydings and they were married until Betty passed away in September of 1995, after a long battle with cancer. During their marriage, two children were born Cordell Bugg in April of 1966 and Joshua Bugg in April of 1974, both born on the same day eight years apart. Buddy owned and operated his construction company RH Bugg Construction for most of his life following in his father’s footsteps. He was known for the quality and care he put into projects no matter how big or how small. He did it more for the love of his craft than he did for the money. He enjoyed the smile and pleasure he put on people’s faces when he was done with their project. Buddy’s greatest blessing came when he became a grandad (Poppy). He loved spending time with his grandkids, whether they were drawing at the kitchen table, playing tag in the yard, woodworking at his shop, he traveled all over to watch them play sports, be in dance recitals or anything else that they may be involved in. His love for his grandchildren was unmatched. Buddy wanted his obituary to say, “If you knew me you knew it all.” Though he will be missed by many, he is no longer in pain and the suffering is over. Buddy is survived by his son Cordell Bugg and wife Tracy of Tulsa, son Josh Bugg of Enid and grandchildren Addison, Carson, Cooper, Creighton, Emmerson, Callen and Cambrea.

Rest in peace!!!!

Duckett Knaus, Marilyn S.

Marilyn Sue (Duckett) Knaus, age 81, passed away peacefully on Saturday morning, January 13th, at Touro Hospital in New Orleans, LA.
Marilyn was the granddaughter of original settlers of the Cherokee Strip in Oklahoma, through grandparents on both sides of her family. She was born on March 30, 1942, to Audrey Muir Duckett and Harold Frank Duckett.
She grew up in Enid, OK, and graduated from Enid High School in 1960. She attended Oklahoma State University, where she was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, before completing her Bachelor of Arts degree in Education at Little Rock University in 1964. That degree fell in line with a family of mostly teachers.
She married Darrel Emmett Knaus in 1963. She taught lower and middle school math and/or science in Little Rock, AR; New Orleans, LA; Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX; and Bedford, TX; and the 2005-2006 St. Vincent’s School yearbook was dedicated to her.

Marilyn moved to New Orleans shortly after the passing of Darrel, to Vista Shores (Summer House). Moving to New Orleans was hard, but true to Marilyn’s spirit, she made several friends and was able to be an amazing grandmother, enjoying playing boardgames and making muffins for the grandkids.
Her health was a constant battle, even before moving to New Orleans, but she took it all in stride. With every set back she was determined to get back on track, continually fighting and in control, making decisions, until her unexpected end. She had a determination in life that was second to none and always pushed herself to get better.
