Hugo Riddell Davenport

May 15, 1945August 4, 2019

Hugo Riddell Davenport graced this world with his presence on May 15, 1945, in London, England. Even as a young schoolboy, Hugo excelled at every and anything he attempted. Hugo grew up in and around the London/Cambridge areas of the U.K. He attended the Cambridge School of Technology, having interests in several areas of study. He was a self-taught computer guru, even back to the pre-windows era of using DOS commands as opposed to Windows. In fact, Hugo disliked Windows very severely. Hugo knew more about the history of England than any book ever written. Hugo moved from the U.K. to Texas in December of 1999 to be with his beloved Kathy. They were married in October of 2000. He was employed and still worked for Justin Brands, Inc. He dearly loved his job as a web developer. It was when he started working for Justin that his attire changed from suit and tie to cowboy boots and jeans. Hugo suffered for 10 years with the after-effects of pancreatic cancer. He spent many, many days in the hospital and had enormous pain. His final battle took him home to his maker on August 4th at 3:20 am. Surviving Hugo are his wife, Kathy, his sons Christopher and William, his daughter Katy, his sister Natalie, his brother Roger, brother-in-law Norm and his wife Sue, "adopted" children Kelly and husband Jake, Billy and wife Lorri and Thom, "adopted" grandchildren Elise, Darcy, and Jake Hunter, "adopted" great-grandchildren Westin, Waden, and Wylen, along with a host of dear friends and acquaintances. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. Services: Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 10am in Laurel Land Chapel of Chimes.
