SAPD Officer Mark Bjugstad dies following battle with lung cancer

Bjugstad was 20-year veteran with SAPD

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Police Department Officer Mark Bjugstad has died of lung cancer.

KSAT 12 first told you about Bjugstad's courageous response to his cancer diagnosis in October, when his fellow officers surprised him with a paid trip to Wisconsin to see his beloved Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Bjugstad was a 20-year veteran with the force.

One of the officers who surprised him at the time told us Bjugstad was one of the "hardest workers that he'd seen around. If anybody defines integrity, it's Mark."
