Hugh was a man of strong Catholic faith and fiercely proud of his Irish heritage. His sense of humor, quick wit, and understanding of the power of laughter will be remembered fondly. He was always ready with a kind word, a funny joke, a warm smile, and a soft shoulder to lean on. He was loved by all who knew him. He worked for many years in auto sales and management and retired from a successful career at Valley Cadillac. He loved his daughter Anne Margaret’s cooking, Steve Harvey, scratch-off lottery tickets, playing golf, riding around on his golf cart in Gypsum Mills, his two cats Sammie and Stewie, playing Bingo and Euchre, going to Fran’s cottage on Waneta Lake, the Buffalo Bills, Notre Dame football, Syracuse basketball, the NY Yankees, going to Mass, and above all else – his children. He served as the President of the Gypsum Mills Cooperative Board for many years and loved his neighbors in the Gypsum Mills community.
