Worked with Hugh for many years at Deere & Company in Personnel and Labor Relations.
Hugh was always a very thoughtful guy and so very sincere. Anytime he would say something you knew he had thought things through and had the best interest of employees and the company as well. He will be missed.
I'm sorry I was unable to attend his services.
