We have a nice posting dedicated to him in the memorial forum. Some of the other postings there have pictures. Hugh was extremely popular with many here and I thought it might be nice to get a picture posted if anyone has one.

Here's a shot of Hugh and his lovely wife Marg. I took it when they stopped in for lunch while on a "parts run" in upstate NY in July 2005

Hugh was both a character and a true gentleman. He is dearly missed...

I put a picture of Hugh and myself on this forum a couple yrs ago, now have to figure out how to search for it. Anybody know how to do that, be my guest!

My wife and I stopped to see Marg and Hugh in Sept of 2008, one year before he died. He showed me around his yard and his tractors, then Marg served refreshments in their back yard...sure was a nice time with them both.

The picture shows us standing in front of one of his little Farmalls, he was wearing an Oliver cap.
He looked fine at that time, little did anyone know what was soon to happen.

That was a great loss, for all of us.

Dave,
When I first met Hugh that day, I was surprised by the Oliver hat but I did not say anything. He loved Farmalls, but I figure hats didn't mean anything to him.

Seeing that other pic of him with Marg makes me think that was just his favorite hat for everyday use.

Hugh was a no-nonsense man, so that hat might have been his way of showing his independence.

I tried to edit the post last night, but couldn't. Contacted Chris about it, he and Kim are going to fix it this morning. I miss old Hugh, although I never met him, we emailed each other quite a bit, and spoke on the phone once or twice. He was a heck of a man!

Dave,

How do I find the Memorial for Hugh? When I click on the Memorial Page I get some memorials, but not Hugh's.

Bob M. Will you post this on the memorial forum. The one at the very bottom of this IH board.
I tried but got an error note as it is protected somehow.
