With a sad heart, I must report the passing of Andy Pugens (Andrew G. Pugens) this past Thursday, September 4, 2014.
The magic of Andy inspired so many youngsters and adults over his vibrant 62 years of life! Having first meet Andy while still a teenager, I am humbled to still call him a friend 38 years later. We will all miss you Andy. A great man, magician and friend...
Our prayers go out to Angie, Andy's guiding light for 42 years, and his relatives and friends.
Andy was a member of the I.B.M. Ring 41, Houdini Club of Wisconsin, and the SAM Assembly 61.
