Arthur James Shugars, Jr.

Arthur James Shugars, of Bethesda, Maryland passed away on Thursday, January 31, 2013, at the age of 100, in Charles Town, West Virginia. He was born in Washington D.C. on July 22, 1912, and was the son of the late Arthur, Sr. and Irene Shugars. He worked for the Interstate Commerce Commission, and then for the D. C. Transit, where he was a tour guide and limosine driver for many famous people. Arthur was an accomplished dancer, who danced with over 62 big bands during that era. In later years, he followed the Russ Morgan Orchestra on dance cruises and where they appeared in many different locations around the country. He was a "Fanatic Redskin Fan", according to a 1985 Montgomery County Journal news article; he was a season ticket holder for 68 years. Arthur was an avid golfer at Congressional Country Club and in Florida during the winter months, until shortly before his death. He was a member of Moose Lodge #453, BPOE Elks #2332, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Central Lodge and the Big Band Society. He was preceded in death by his first wife Martha Raley, a daughter, Linda Middleton, a son, Allen Shugars, an infant son, Allen Shugars, one brother, Glenwood Terry Shugars, and one sister, Shirley Jean Guglielmi. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann, of Bethesda and Lighthouse Point, Florida, his son George Shugars (Regina) of Aspen Hill, Maryland and his daughter Marilyn Hancock of Mt. Airy, Maryland. Also his step-children, Kathleen Quinn (Terry) of Fredon, NJ, James Kiley, Jr. of Kansas City, Kansas, John Kiley (Mary) of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and Michele Kiley of Aspen, Colorado. Arthur is also survived by his sister, Geraldine Brown, of Middletown, Virginia, 20 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Arthur Shugars will be held at a later time at the discretion of the family. Donations in memory of Arthur may be made to the charity of your choice.
