I knew Hugh when he was at the Cancer Centre. I worked with him arranging the rides for the patients. He always had a smile and was great to work with. Am sorry to know that he has gone. He was a great guy

We are so sorry to hear of Hugh's passing. I remember him as a humble and cheery man. He definitely loved bowling & Doris & together they raised two very kind and loving kids.
It was good to see him a few years ago when Brent brought him up North during a dog show competition.
His kind spirit will be missed.

Wanted to pass along condolences from Maureen and I. My mother, Kathleen (nee Otway) wanted to say sincerely how he was a very kind person, always eager to help, and a true gentleman.
I think those characteristics are truly reflected in his photo. May he rest in peace, knowing his legacy will live on.

To Dear Angela, Brent and family

We are sad with you at the passing of your Dad/Papa and our Uncle Hugh, but we rejoice with you in a life that was well-lived.

We will remember Uncle Hugh as a kind, gentle man who loved and cherished his family and friends and who was loved and cherished in return.
We will remember his gentle sense of humour, his little jokes, his teasing comments and his proud dad and papa stories about the antics and achievements of his kids and grandkids - both 2-legged and 4-legged! He loved you all so dearly!
We will remember his giving spirit - his volunteer work at the Cancer Society and later at Kensington, greeting people, making them feel welcome and delivering the mail.
We will remember a man who enjoyed the simple things in life - a good bowl of cereal, a tasty bowl of soup, a drive with his family, a Tim Horton’s coffee with friends.
We will remember his spirit of adventure - despite health issues, he was up for a trip, a drive, an adventure. We were so happy and impressed that he was able to join us at the family reunion in Calgary in 2019!

So, as we say good bye to our dear Uncle Hugh, we will give thanks for his presence in our lives, for the examples he gave us on how to live a full, loving and decent life, and for the legacy he has left in his amazing children, grandchildren and in all whose lives he touched.

We have been blessed. And now, he is at rest with his beloved Doris.

Angela, Brent and family, as always, you are in our hearts, our thoughts, in our prayers.

Much love,

Joanne, Scott and Blake

Hugh and Doris were members of the church that I attend here in London. One of my memories of Hugh was each Sunday morning he would have a new joke to tell me. He loved to make people smile. I also remember him sharing with me how much he enjoyed being the "mailman" at Kensington Village Retirement home after he moved in.
Praying for his family as they mourn his death.
