Hugh was a special friend that felt like family to us. We will so much miss him stopping by to check on us old folks. If our garage was open he would come in our back door just to scare us. Not really think he just felt at home like we wanted him to feel. I feel sorry for all the family left to try to move on in horrible times. Our prayers are with all you .if we can help in any way we are just down the street. Hank ,jo and family

Hugh was a great guy. We always enjoyed talking with him at work. All of us at The Harlan Company had a special way of answering the phone when he called in. We will miss him. Praying for the family.

He was my hero and the guy everyone wanted to be around. As his younger brother, it was like being a part of his celebrity - I was immediately recognized as Hugh’s little brother and therefore automatically accepted as one of the gang. Everyone knew he was an exceptional athlete drafted to play professional baseball right out of high school, but he was also a gifted and skilled football player. As just a ninth grader, an article came out in the newspaper saying Hugh Mendenhall was the best football player to ever come out of Kearns, Utah. Baseball was his love and he chose to concentrate in that arena. I would be remiss not to mention that he was an outstanding basketball player, pool player, golfer, or whatever else he chose to do.
Many days were spent at the park - me pitching the baseball with as much heat as I could muster only to watch him hit almost every ball at least 400 feet over the fence! Of course I would retrieve all the balls and do it again. Every once in a while he would let me hit a few. It really didn’t matter because it was fun to be with my big brother and hero. He also had a sense of humor - one that put fear in the hearts of many of my friends. There were many times my friends just didn’t show up due to a threat of sorts from Hugh!
I cherish all the memories of the best brother anyone could have ever had. I sincerely recognize that the amazing Hugh Mendenhall was indeed my big brother. He molded my life in ways that I will never be able to share with him. I send my love and heartfelt sympathy to Yvonne, Sammy, Joey, and all those whose paths he crossed who are experiencing this loss. Hugh Mendenhall - thank you for being my amazing big brother.

I send my prayers, love and sympathy to Yvonne and all of the family. I will miss Hugh a lot and I know the church will too. He did work at our home for the past 10 years and every time he came, he took time to visit and ask how our family was. When my husband passed away in 2014, he came to the door, gave me a hug and cried with such emotion that I knew he deeply cared for our loss. He enjoyed my husband's friendship. Yes, he was a "people person" and one who was very caring, kind, hard worker and a great guy. I will keep the family in my prayers. We will see Hugh again in Heaven where there will be no sickness. God bless you all with God's comfort. Love, Gail Hughes White
