To the family,
Hugh was an amazing man!
I owe my career in freight claims to him. He loved what he did and had a passion for "Doing the right thing".

I will miss your stories, books, paintings, home made cakes and most of all you!

With Love and Deep Respect,

To the family, I am very sorry for the loss of this great man.

I was honored to work with Hugh for years at Home Depot. He was so full of knowledge and was eager to share. I always enjoyed our long talks and mostly enjoyed his art. His talents were many and I will miss him.

May you rest in peace my friend!

I will always remember the good times and all the Georgia and family history you shared with us all. God has taken you home but we will carry you in our hearts forever.
