A great priest and educator who had a positive influence on many,including me. He provided opportunities to succeed. God has a very special place in heaven for Bishop Hughes. May he rest in peace.

A positive Mentor to many of us. He "showed us the way." He is walking the halls of heaven with that booming voice "Say there Fellow!"
Rest in peace good Father!

What a great blessing to the people of Hazard, Ky.! Rest in peace, dear friend.
When I heard of the Bishop's passing, I related to some friends that he embodied the traits that he set as the credo of Cardinal Mooney High School, which were Sanctity, Scholarship and Discipline. The 1956-1959 years at CMHS in Youngstown were wonderful years, largely because of Father's influence to all. May he rest in Peace.
