In Loving Memory

Paul William Connor

October 7, 1939 - March 13, 2020

Paul served In the United States Navy prior to taking a chance in the pest control world and starting Bug Master in 1978.  Paul’s hard work ethic and commitment to his business from its inception, was unparalleled!  When Paul and Pete partnered up in business in the 1990’s, it allowed him to breathe a little easier knowing that his hard work up to that point was not in vain and his legacy would live on. The business foundation that Paul laid for Bug Master was solid, and the fresh, modern, creative changes that Pete brought to the business continued to solidify it!  Paul was not only a business partner; he was father figure, a mentor, and a true friend to Pete. 


His infectious personality, and his pride were displayed through everything he did, whether business or personal.  Paul continued to work in the office with his desk next to Pete’s, until he was physically unable. There are not enough words to define what Paul meant to all of us at Bug Master. His memory will forever be remembered!
