Jim Hughes

Lost a dear friend yesterday after his struggle with cancer. Jim Hughes always knew how to laugh and more importantly how to make others laugh. There were times where he'd have us practically busting a gut from his jokes and his impersonations. He would do this impersonation of a backwoods Virginian (including eating possum and such) that would have be crying with laughter. He had impeccable taste in music, and he and I could talk Beatles/Clapton/etc. like very few I've known. Aside from his fun quirkiness, he is one of the kindest people I've known, and the service he performed for my family and countless others can never be repaid or forgotten.

I'll miss you, my friend. Until we meet again . . .



  1. Thanks for the post, Kirk. I agree with you completely. We've lost a great man and he'll be missed.

  2. I didn't know him but heard many good things about him. Sorry to hear he lost the battle. Nice tribute Kirk.

  3. Well put, Kirk. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and close friends. We haven't worked with him as closely, but I had a lot of respect for him.
