Peacefully on July 23, 2013 at St. Peter’s Hospital in Hamilton. He will be sadly missed by his wife Jackie and Family. Special thanks to the staff of St. Peters Hospital , Lincoln Terrace, for their wonderful care. If desired memorial donations may be made St. Peters Hospital (Lincoln Terrace) Private cremation has taken place. We love you Chooch. What a difference a good man can make. Our world won’t be the same without him, but the next world has gained one heck of a soul.
I just heard of Hugh’s passing. My deepest condolences to the family. Hugh and I worked together at Serca Hamilton and he always brought joy every time I seen him. I am so sadden by this news he was my gentle giant …. My thoughts are with you Jackie.
so sorry Jackie to hear of Hughs passing. Our thoughts are with you. Will always remember his laugh and his outlook on life. Take care
Hey buddy, I’m sure things are a bit more peaceful for you now than the last few months. I won’t forget the 5:30am tee times we had, me you and Jet the dog… Such good times. I’ll keep an eye on Jackie for you OK! If you should hear that I’m coming up there, get the pair of us a really early tee time so you can kick my butt again. Miss you mate.

Hi Hugh. So sad to hear of your passing. Working at St Peters gave me a short opportunity to meet with you and Jackie. I loved listening to your CD’s when I was cleaning your room. It was a pleasure, however brief, to have made your acquaintance. You are missed and in my prayers.
Dear Hugh you are now resting in peace- God works in mysterious way’s
You will always have a place in my heart with your good old Scottish humour and your big smile and always have a story to tell. You will now have lots of time for your game of golf, hope what Marguerite said is not true having no Handicap system!! This would not be good but you will overcome. We will look after Jackie for you
Good bye Dear Hughie
I am really sorry to hear about Hughie. Let me add to Doug’s comment – I know for a fact that Hughie’s got a guaranteed starting time now and there’s no waiting on the tee but wait until he finds out there’s no handicap system. I am truly sorry. God grant you all the strength you need.
I am very sorry to learn of your loss of Hugh. There are many fond memories of one so dearly loved. We all need words of comfort and hope when we mourn. Revelation 21:4 assures us that God will end death. John 5:28,29 promises that there will be a resurrection. May this sincere condolence help comfort you and give you hope.
We miss Hugh for many reasons. His sense of humour, most of all; his caring and friendship over many years : the great vacations we enjoyed together with Jackie and Hugh: his zest for living: the many enjoyable golf games we played with him. We shall sorely miss him and never forget him. He will always be in our hearts. Kathy and Bob
We always looked forward to dealing with Hugh at Serca! He was the nicest guy and we looked forward to his phone calls. Gone but not forgotten.
Jackie, I will always cherish my memories of Big Hugh. I’m sure there is a golf course in heaven. Doug.
So sorry for your loss, Jackie, remembering the good old days with Hughie and you, you both danced at our wedding 35yrs ago, many happy times!
Hugh will be sorely missed by many, may he rest in peace. Hugs Doreen & Al
