Hugh was a very quiet man who loved his family deeply. He was a very hard worker and his strong work ethics served him well. He is probably best remembered for his work with the Village of Lougheed. He enjoyed curling, bowling, horseshoes, floor curling, bingo, cards, and coffee row.
Being part of the community was very important to Hugh. Always enjoyed a visit with whoever he ran into.
A memorial service for Hugh will be Friday, January 19, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lougheed Community Hall. Memorial donations in memory of Hugh may be made to a charity of the donor's choice.
