DCA Mourns the Loss of Teacher and Alum
Brooke Tometich

It is with a very heavy heart that I need to inform you that Mr. Benjamin Pugh, a middle and high school Social Studies teacher, a coach in our community, and a member of the class of 2009 passed away on July 2, 2021.  Mr. Pugh was diagnosed in June with germ cell cancer and was hospitalized a week later

due to a cardiac event that he suffered.  As a result, he was in an induced coma as the doctors worked to stabilize his condition.  Although we trust that Mr. Pugh has gone on to be with the Lord, this is certainly a sudden and difficult passing for the family and our community.  Please be in prayer for his family during this difficult time.

As memorial service arrangements become available, we will notify the DCA community of those details.  We will also communicate further information when appropriate.
