I took from Mr Hugg, learned a lot, and enjoyed his class. He was an exceptional teacher who took the time to encourage and foster growth. ~ Kathy Johnson Young, class of 1963

Mr. Hugg meant so very much to me. I visited him at his home when he was 88;we had a wonderful visit. My husband and I attended his art show and I told him I would see him again...I will. I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful teacher/friend in my life. I am so sorry for your loss. I am just now learning of his death through a FB page for South Park Greenies or I would have been at his funeral. Much love to you, Pam Clark Dunivant

Mr. Hugg was a great art teacher at South Park High School. It was through his inspiration that I was encouraged to "create". I've been creating art in one way or another ever since. SPHS '67

Herman was such an amazing man. I only got to know him in the last few years, but I always enjoyed our visits and his phone calls. Even though he was in his nineties, his creative mind never rested and he always inspired me to see the possible and "Ask why not". Mike, you will be in our prayers, I was blessed to know your father! Danny West, Walnut Ridge, Arkansas

I will miss uncle Shorty's witty stories so much! I'm so proud to be related to him. He always embraced and encouraged my quirky artsy ways. A master artist in my book, one of the greatest! I'm really sad he's gone.

Herman, "Shorty" to me, was the last of the four Hugg brothers and their sister. They were all very special people. When a man like him is gone the world looses someone that can never be replaced. He has had a big impact on all our lives and we will miss him.

Mr. Hugg was such an inspriration to me during my years at South Park! Wish we had more teachers like him today. He opened my eyes to so much in art and life! You may have left this Earth but you are most surely coloring the Heavens in your most special way!

Uncle "Shortie" I well remember you always as the sweet, kind and gentle uncle with the weird and wonderful strange sculptures in your yard. I will always remember the old coffee table you made the sat in my Mom and Dad's living room and the praying hands of our Lord that you sculpted for our front yard. You live in our memories for now but with God for forever!

Please accept our deep sadness at the loss of this esteemed South Park teacher.
