Larry-BugenIt is with deep sadness that we share that Larry Bugen lost his valiant battle this week.
Dear TSD Community,

I know that many of you are aware that our Superintendent’s husband Larry has been under Hospice care for the past six weeks. It is with deep sadness that I share that he lost his valiant battle yesterday. Claire and Larry have been married for 43 years and together they have built amazing legacies of caring and commitment in our community. I know you all join me in expressing our sincere love and condolences for Claire, Erik and Jessica at this difficult time in their lives.

The Board has been in communication with Claire this past weeks and both she and I are grateful for the team effort that has kept things afloat in her absence. As Twyla says, we may not do things with her zest and enthusiasm but we try hard each and every day. The Board is thankful that Larry and Claire had time together at home to make this difficult transition.

A Celebration of the life of Larry Bugen will be held Wednesday, May 22 at 4:00 PM at the Wildflower Center in Austin. Tributes and additional information can be found at

With Regrets,

Walter A. Camenisch, III
