Peter Hugus

Peter Hugus was born on January 6, 1955 in Newport, Rhode Island.  He was 64 when God called him home on February 17, 2019 in Waco, Texas, and we are comforted that he is cancer and pain free.

Service Information: To be announced at a later date.

He was a Christian man and lived by the principles and values that he held close because God was in his heart.

He worked for Bechtel Corporation for 39 years which allowed him and his family to live across the USA and Australia.  Due to his work they experienced wonderful adventures.  He lived life to the fullest, but his focus was always what was best for his family. We never doubted how Peter felt about us because he constantly expressed it to Gena and his children.

He is survived by his wife, Gena; daughter, Meredith Beliveau; son, Austin Hugus; and brothers, James  “Chip” Hugus and Steve Hugus.

He will be missed more than words can express. We love him very much and will see his handsome face someday.

In lieu of flowers you are welcome to honor Peter by donating to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network or in Peter’s name.

  10. Gena, I am so sorry and in shock as I am sure you are. Peter was a dear man. One that cared for others and always looked out for those that reported to him. His logical thinking and easy, soft spoken ways, caused others around him to remain calm and work together toward a common good. I realized that I had known you and Peter for almost 30 years. Although our kids never met, we knew about each of their ups and downs.

    Please know Lee and I are thinking of you.

  11. Bill and Etta Mae

    We are so sorry for your loss. I am sorry we never got to meet him. He sounds like everyone should have meet him and learned from him. I am so happy for you Gena that you got to experience such a wonderful marriage, very few people have the blessings you two experienced. We will continue to keep you and the children in our prayers. Much love is sent to you.

  12. To The Hugus Family, Peter brought me on to the Wheatstone Project with Bechtel to work alongside him which was a pleasure.
    Deepest Condolence’s for your loss all my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  14. Gena and family,
    My deepest condolences to you and your family. I was shocked and so saddened to hear of Peter’s passing. I worked with Peter in Australia and knew him as a compassionate and caring leader to his staff, with a soft spoken manner and gentle sense of humor. I hope it may bring you some comfort to know he will be missed by many at Bechtel.

  15. I have known Peter for a few years while he was in Western Australia and in the US. He was an awesome person with great thoughts and beliefs. May his soul rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to his family and May God Almighty provide them with the Heavenly peace as they go through this hardest moment in their lives.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Peter was an inspiration and a gentleman. He always maintained a calm demeanor in the midst of a storm, and he did it with a smile on his face. He is missed so much by his Bechtel family; but we agree with you … we are happy he is pain free again.

  17. Chrissy Kellerman

    I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. He was a wonderful man and such a pleasure to work with. Peter was my manager when he was working for Bechtel in Frederick, MD. Our team was so lucky to have him. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
