December 12, 1938 - November 16, 2015


Oscar Sergio Bugarini, Sr. 76, passed away on Monday, November 16, 2015 at his beloved home in Yorba Linda, CA. He was born on December 12, 1938 in Chihuahua Mexico.

A United States Navy sailor who, after honorable discharge, obtained his undergraduate degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills and went on to obtain his MBA from the same school.

Making his career as an electrical engineer and manager, he worked for Boeing, (originally Mc Donnell Douglas) where he worked for over 30 years.

Oscar married Maria Mercedes in 1961. They were happily married for 54 years. Oscar was a past president of the Lions Club in Cerritos and the founding President of the Yorba Linda Lions Club. He was also a board member of the Lions Eye Foundation and was an integral part of raising funds for District 4L2’s eye mobile. He was also a founding grand knight of the Knights of Columbus for St Martin De Porres Catholic Church in Yorba Linda. Oscar also supported his wife in serving the Littlest Angel’s Guild of CHOC Hospital, Orange County.

He enjoyed dancing with his wife, charitable events, gardening, camping, playing a monthly poker game and spending time with his family and friends. He was the best “bingo card seller”, a self-nominated church choir member, an incredible pancake flipper and the most compassionate pet lover-especially of his grand dogs, Winston, Bella and the pee-wa-was. He also received multiple awards for his contributions to his philanthropic organizations and was known to bring a positive word, an attentive ear, a corny joke and a warm smile to everyone he knew. Oscar is survived by his beloved wife, Mercedes; his children, Elsa Yocca (husband Nicholas), Oscar Jr, (wife Anthika) and Yvete Minor (husband Stephen), who all lovingly referred to him as “el Viejo. He is also survived by his grandchild, Enzo Bugarini.

A Rosary and vigil service will be held at St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church in Yorba Linda at 7:00 pm, December 6th. The funeral mass will be held at St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church at 10:00 am on December 7th with a reception immediately following. Burial will follow at Loma Vista Cemetery in Fullerton, California. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to the Lions Eye Foundation or the Littlest Angel’s Guild.

    Our entire family is saddened by Oscar’s passing. How do you put into words just how wonderful a person could be? He always had a welcoming smile, a warm hug and was so quick witted. My father loved joking with Oscar every chance he got, they both love to make people laugh. However, he also loved talking with Oscar because he was such an intelligent man, so knowledgeable about so very much, he was a true scholar. Oscar was a loving, caring and warm person, it shown deeply from his eyes. We are all so thankful to have met Oscar and had the fortune to become caring friends of his and Mercedes. We will truly miss him, his smile and genuine warmth.

    With Sincere Sympathy,
    The Russell Family,
    Jake, Judy and Kassie
