Remembering Hugh with a big smile, just the way he would want!

Hugh and I became instant friends from the moment we met when he first became PLAC's Executive Director. I am sure the "instant friendship" quality of Hugh was experienced by all blessed to know his larger than life persona.

Hugh was so much fun, so energetic, passionate about the law and his friends and family, and so very supportive of us all. He also loved tackling a good challenge, as my tale below will demonstrate.

As a board member of the Product Liability Advisory Council for several years, I worked closely with Hugh. He was well spoken, extremely dedicated and extraordinarily organized - with a dash of good humor. It was a joy to work with him.

Hugh was a great leader at PLAC. He was creative, energetic, a terrific raconteur, and a delight to be with. Most of all, he was a great friend. My entire family will miss him greatly, but we can always appreciate the fact that we were privileged that he was our friend.

Hugh was my dear friend and mentor from the moment he joined PLAC in 1993. He was a champion of leadership opportunities for women, a man who verily "walked the talk." He was funny and fierce and larger than life, and I will miss him more than words can express.

Hugh was a great friend throughout our years at Hammond High School. From our first ping pong games after he moved to Alexandria to our classes together and finally our amazing summer of 1968 trip to Europe with Gayle and many other friends, Hugh was a uniquely funny and intellectually engaging presence. I am so happy that he and Gayle had their love and a strong family. I send love to all.
