Hugh enjoyed spending time with family and friends telling tales about family and the crazy things he has done. He had a love of music and taught himself to play guitar. He also enjoyed fixing and tinkering with things whether they needed fixing or not.
He has left this world behind for his next great adventure. His absence will be felt by the many that loved him and he will be remembered fondly.
