Robert J. Hughes

Mr. Hughes, a longtime resident of Amityville, L.I., died on Wednesday, December 23rd at the age of 75 years.

Bob, as he was affectionately known by those who loved him, was a Viet Nam veteran; and a member of the Amityville American Legion. His friends knew him best as a model train aficionado, but his greatest passion was his devotion and beloved caring of cats. He adored cats, and took care of all the felines who were fortunate to have crossed his path.

He is survived by his many dearest friends and neighbors who were his family, especially Michael Hamchuk and Linda Iacona.

Visitation will be open to friends on Wednesday, December 30th from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. The Funeral Mass will follow at St. Martin of Tours R.C. Church in Amityville. Interment will take place at Calverton National Cemetery with a prayer service and Military Honors conducted by the U.S. Army Ceremonial Guard.
