June 4, 1948 - March 12, 2020

Hugh Stacey/ Hewlett L. Stacey left this world on March 12, 2020. He will be sadly missed as he was the most generous, sweet, loving person the world could ask for.

He is survived by his son, Richard; brothers, Alvin DeWayne Stacey and Howard E. Stacey; sisters, Linda Stacey McDaniel and Nancy Stacey Stone; along with the two loves of his life - Patricia Micewicz and his beloved cat Orange.

He is predeceased by his sister Edith Rogers.

Hugh hailed from St. Petersburg, Florida where, after serving our country in Vietnam, he enjoyed a successful twelve-year career in the restaurant business. Then in his early thirties, he decided to pursue his passion and began a career in golf by enrolling in the PGA Apprentice Program.

In 1988 Hugh moved to the east coast of Florida where he managed outside operations golf programs at several clubs in Palm Beach County. In 1995 Hugh took over as caddie master at The Loxahatchee Club in Jupiter, FL where he nurtured and led one of the finest caddie programs in America until his retirement in 2016.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations in Hugh’s name to the South Florida PGA Foundation.

Hewlett was an extraordinary gift to the game, the culture of golf and club life. His wit was clever, often breaking through correctness but very funny and warm. If Clint Eastwood were looking for a super caddy Hewlett would match the test. He was a leader who quickly understood the personalities of the caddy and golfer. His effective management style was wholly visible in the esprit de corps and conduct of the entire caddy team. Humor is when events of the world meet an interior disposition of heartfelt merriment. Hewlett likely overcame much of life’s adversity by his character, courage and humor.
Hewlett was an everyday blend of John Wayne and Mel Brooks in the golf club venue. He was and is much beloved and certainly not forgotten by the few who encountered his soul.

Hugh personified everything that makes Loxahatchee so great and unique. His obituary says it all. Our Club is a better place because of him and he will long be remembered by those of us fortunate enough to have known him

To my Children you were Uncle Hew not biologically but in our hearts, from telling our son how you moved the holes on the golf course with a hole puller (cane) and rides on the golf cart and helping our daughter hustle Girl Scout cookies. Holiday dinners and everyday hugs
You will forever be in our hearts!
