Showe, Hugh
1929 - 2017
Hugh Burkley "BURK" Showe, of Upper Arlington, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by his loving wife, Peg, and family on Tuesday, October 17, 2017. He was born to the late Hugh & Irene Showe in Kenton, Ohio on February 18, 1929. Burk was Valedictorian of his class at Aquinas High School. He attended The Ohio State University and was a member of ROTC. After college, Burk enlisted in the Air Force which began his life- long passion for flying. With his children and "family" of associates at his side, Burk created and nurtured a thriving real estate development, construction, investment and management corporation with property locations from coast to coast. Many decades ago, Burk discovered New Mexico and Hawaii and thus began his curious attire of aloha shirts, bolo ties and cowboy hats. His stories were grand and jokes slightly rated. He always enjoyed a fresh audience and was quick to pass out a $2 bill, a can of macadamia nuts, a Showe knife, stingray wallet, or koa wood pen to those that he met. Burk adored his family and enjoyed sharing his interest in boating, flying, fishing, snow skiing and scuba diving with them. His summers were shared with family and friends at Bar Harbor on the shores of Lake Erie. In addition to his parents, Burk was preceded in death by his former wife, Phyllis "Kitt" Showe and son, Burkley D. Showe. He is survived by his wife, Margaret "Peg" Showe; his loving children, Hugh (Heidi Koch fiancé) Showe and the mother of his children, Candace Showe, Kevin ( Patty) Showe, David Showe and his former spouses, Nancy Showe and Lisa Showe, Eric ( Debbie) Showe, Miriam Reed and the father of her child, Richard Reed, Andrew ( Melissa) Showe, and Christopher Peterson; former daughter-in law, Molly Broughton; grandchildren, Carrie ( Kevin) Rohyans, Alexis Paige ( Derek) Rogers, Lauren Showe, Cassandra (Tyler) Lucks, Burkley Gannon Showe, Ashley Showe, Gannon David Showe, Hugh Burkley ( Chynna) Showe III, Colin Showe, Diandra Showe, Carson Showe, Kirsten Showe, Austin Burkley Reed, Harrison Showe, Blake Showe, Pierce Showe, Emma Showe, and Victoria Showe; great-grandchildren, Kevin Dylan Rohyans, Walker Lucks, Charlotte Rogers, Poppy Lucks, Mackenzie Lucks, Wake Lucks, Wylie Lucks, Bodi Showe and extended family members and friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 10 am at Our Lady of Victory Church, 1559 Roxbury Road, Columbus, Ohio with a celebration of life luncheon immediately following at The Worthington Inn, 649 High Street, Worthington, Ohio. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Burk's memory may be made to The Boys Scouts of America, 807 Kinnear Rd., Columbus, Ohio 43212 or The Hospice of Central Ohio, P.O. Box 430, Newark, Ohio, 43058.
