Paul Junior Cogar, 78, of West Salem, passed away at his residence surrounded by his family, Tuesday August 18, 2020.
Paul was born October 18, 1941 in Centralia, West Virgina, the son of the late Richard Paul and Wilcie (Bleigh) Cogar. He attended Roosevelt High School in Nutterfort, WV until he enlisted in the U.S. Army where he served his country during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Once his military service was finished, Paul obtained his GED.

Paul moved to Mansfield OH in 1964, and later to rural West Salem in 1974 with his wife Mary Anna (Fleming) Cogar to whom he was married November 21, 1973.

Praying for you, MaryAnn, Alan and the family. Paul (Bub) was my first cousin and a friend. He valued family. He didn't make a "big splash", just a steady, faithful, friend. We are missing him and there will always be a BIG hole in the family circle until we meet again, in Glory!!

Love, Ken & Patty, Kenny & Joshua Wilt And Stan &
