Hugh lived a full life with many interests, including camping, travelling, fishing, carpentry, card playing, being a Amateur Radio Operator and attending their regular get togethers. Hugh enjoyed his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a jack of all trades and a master of many. Included in his varied career was work on the electrical frequency conversion throughout Ontario and Panama. He spent the later years of his career as a General Foreman at Algoma Steel. After his retirement, Hugh kept busy helping his children with the numerous jobs they found for him to do. He will be missed greatly but we are glad we have had such a long time together.
