John A. Hough, 72 of Taylorville passed away at 7:16 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 in his home surrounded by his family.

He was born on June 28, 1947 in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Howard and Helen (Williams) Hough. He married Kathleen Puglisi on November 18, 1968 in Oakland, Maryland.

John was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and previously attended SIU Carbondale. He retired after many years of working as a route salesman for various companies. Pappy, as he was known by his family and many friends, will always be remembered as a people person. He loved working in the garden, tending to his crop of tomatoes and lettuce. He enjoyed sports and was an avid fan of the Steelers, Cardinals, and Blues. Fishing was his greatest pastime throughout the years. Above all, his family was the center of his life. His wife, kids and grandkids meant the world to him.

John is survived by his wife: Kathi Hough of Taylorville; children: Trina Tullis (Brad) of Taylorville and Brandon “Chub” Hough (Holly) of St. Louis; grandchildren: Shelby Hough (fiancé Joey Wetstein), Jenny Tullis, and Jonathan Tullis; and brother: Hank Hough of Tennessee.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

John’s wishes are to be cremated and no services will be held. McClure Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Taylorville is assisting the family with arrangements. Memories of John, or condolences to his family, may be left online at
