Kwame Benjamin Anwar Stewart-Pugh Jr.

January 11, 1995October 9, 2020

On Friday, October 9th 2020, Kwame Benjamin Anwar Stewart-Pugh Jr passed away at the age of 25.

Kwame was born on January 11th, 1995 in Fayetteville, NC and lived in Charlotte, NC from age 3 until his passing.

Everyone that came to know Kwame could feel how gentle his soul was. Though he tried to ignore it, at heart he was really a big softy. He was honestly a full faceted person. He helped ones in times of need when he didn’t really have much to give. Anyone that knew Kwame well knew his passion was cars, he really loved working on cars. Kwame could fix a car - he could fix anything really.

When Kwame was younger, he also was a competitive gymnast and was coached by his uncle Enouch. He won State Championships on the Pommel Horse event. He was really good on Rings, High Bar and Floor too.

Kwame is survived by parents, Kwame Pugh Sr & Tina Hardrick; grandparents, Sharon Stewart & Enouch Pugh Jr; and Richard & Marilyn Irwin; siblings, Jessica Mealer, Nichole Collins, Andrew Pugh, & Shyla Pugh; Uncle, Enouch Stewart; Aunt Gekesha Strickland-Pugh; nephew Caleb Collins; and his other loving aunts, uncles, and cousins and many great friends.

A funeral service will be held via Zoom. Please contact the family to receive that information.

You will be missed dearly, I didn't know you that long but I could see how good of a person you were. I'm sorry for what happened to you, you or anybody deserved what happened to you.
I remember one day when my husband and I saw you and you helped us and bought us something to eat. You have no idea how much we appreciated that. I could see from the first time I met you that you were the type of person that would give your last ten dollars if they needed it. You'll be missed and always in our hearts. Til we meet again Kwame, you'll always be in our hearts and our condolences go out to your family. We are here for them if you need us for anything. You & my husband (Ramon) were friends from the first day you worked together & I'm so happy I was able to meet and become a friend of yours as well. Until we meet again my friend ❣️❣️!!
