Jeffrey Ferguson Obituary

Jeffrey “Jeff” Alan Ferguson, 44, of California, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully at the home of his parents in Uniontown, Pa., on January, 10, 2024, in the loving care of his immediate family and the comfort of his faithful rescue dog, Kenny. Born October 31, 1979, in Mt. Pleasant, PA, Jeff was the son of Susan M.(Bugosh) Cope of Uniontown, PA, and the late Ellis Truman Ferguson. After fighting a decades-long battle with alcohol addiction, Jeff lost his life from severe health complications associated with the disease. Jeff will be missed terribly by his family and friends and especially Kenny, his constant canine companion. Jeff is survived by his mother, Susan Cope (and husband Edward) of Uniontown; sister, Beth John (and husband Dave) of Orlando, FL; niece, Brenna John (and fiancé Abdias Garcia) of Philadelphia, PA; Aunts and Uncles: Judy and Ed Zuzak of Blairsville, PA; Michael and Barbara Bugosh, of Columbus, OH; cousins Ed and Marlene Zuzak of Greensburg, PA; Monica and Steve Moon of Merritt Island, FL; Deanna Bugosh Corbitt of Atlanta, GA; Chris Bugosh of Columbus, OH; and Wendy Bugosh of Columbus, OH; step-brothers Mark Cope (and Michele Salustri) of New York; Justin Cope (and wife Jessica) of Boca Raton, FL; along with many extended cousins and friends. Jeff was a 1998 graduate of Geibel High School and received a degree in graphic design from the Pittsburgh Institute of Technology (PIT) in 2000. Jeff was known for his kindness, sharp wit, and warm ability to make his friends and family laugh. He was a gentle person who loved music, art, and cooking meals for others. Jeff’s favorite days were spent enjoying the outdoors, hiking, fishing, driving through the Fayette County mountains, and taking solitary walks to the Jumonville Cross and Jumonville Glen. A private family service will be held at Frank Kapr Funeral Home, in Scottdale, PA, and internment at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Cemetery in the Bugosh family burial plot.
