I met Hugh when he first joined Stuart Community Concert Band. When we had a concert, I would drive to the Civic Center, meet Hugh and Allen Fetterman, the director, and we would load the tympani into the back of my Jeep. Then to the concert. I met his wife, Donna, on one of these trips and I felt like we were friends immediately. At band practice, Hugh always had a funny story to share . I thought about Hugh often after he left the band and am saddened by his passing. Condolences to Donna and his family.
