David Allan PUGH, 57, of Arispe, Iowa, died Feb. 26, 2006. Son of Muriel and Lester R. PUGH (both now deceased), he graduated in 1966 from Camelback High School in Phoenix, Ariz. In 1968, he entered the U. S. Army during the Vietnam War, serving two years. After his discharge, he worked as a bookkeeper in Phoenix, then married Merle Lee BARKALOW in 1979. They settled in Arispe, and he worked in nearby Afton as a certified nursing assistant. In 1979 he reactivated the newspaper formerly known as the Diagonal Reporter, becoming publisher of the Diagonal Progress. In 1998, he purchased the Afton Star Enterprise newspaper, and became owner and publisher of both papers. He also worked with the Americorps After-School program through East Union School District, volunteered with the Canoe kids and served as their PTO reporter. He served on Arispe City Council and was active in the Union County Republicans. He was a member of the Arispe United Methodist Church, where he helped with Sunday School. He was one of the founders and a board member of the Diagonal Printing Museum.

Survivors included his wife, Merle Lee PUGH; daughter, Margaret Jean PUGH; step-mother, Carol PUGH; and mother-in-law, Barbara BARKALOW.
