Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this very sad time. Hugh will always be remembered in this community for the many outstanding contributions he and the family have made. I will always remember his thoughtfulness when I worked at Adesa and he would come back from BC and bring in a couple of boxes of fruit for the staff. Hugh was a great business man and I admired his integrity and commitment to community. He will truly be missed. Sincere sympathy to his family
