Brian Patrick McHugh

Brian Patrick McHugh, age 51, of Odessa, passed away at his home on Sunday, September 8, 2019.  He was born in New York, NY on June 21, 1968 to Frank and Elizabeth McHugh.  Brian had worked at the general manager of Cane D'Oro Pizza, where he was affectionately known as "Master Spinner."  They plan to rename one of their pizza "The Angry New Yorker" in his honor.  He was most recently employed at the "Rusty Bucket BBQ and Tavern."

Brian was on the autism spectrum and channeled his inner Forrest Gump on an amazing trip to raise autism awareness.  He started on his in-line skates in Montauk Point, NY going across the country to Laguna Beach, CA.  This roundtrip journey across America took him about 6 months, with the final leg of skating all the way back to Jacksonville, FL before a return trip to New York. In spite of the many challenges he encountered on this trip, it was worth it all because of the awesome families whose lives were touched and who shared with him how he had given them hope.

Brian had been a special part of the food truck community in Odessa for about six years.  He was passionate about making food and always gave it 110%.  He loved Rock-n-Roll and was a Bruce Springsteen fan.  Brian was a people person and a generous and humble soul who never wanted any recognition for his giving, but didn't mind telling you his opinions.  His new interest in repairs made him an aspiring handyman.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate you sharing in Brian's giving spirit by donating in his honor to SHARE, 3500 N. A Street, Ste. 2500, Midland, TX 79705 or online at
