Cheryl Hug Obituary
Cheryl Fackler Hug Cheryl Fackler Hug, 50, passed away unexpectedly Feb 17, 2013. She was born in Oakland, CA and grew up in Cleveland, OH. She graduated from Wittenberg University with a political science degree and received her law degree from the University of Michigan. She worked for Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher in Washington DC where she met and married her beloved husband of 21 years, William Fackler Hug. They began their overseas adventures in Belarus, where Cheryl assisted in the development of the Belarus constitution and helped establish a public law library. They then moved to Menlo Park where Cheryl began working with Sun Microsystems, both in California and Geneva, Switzerland, ultimately becoming Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Chief Integrity and Compliance Officer. After Sun's acquisition by Oracle she moved to Hewlett Packard where she was a Vice President and Associate General Counsel.

Cheryl raised two wonderful sons with Bill, volunteered at their schools, and was always there for family and friends. She was a fierce advocate for causes in which she believed. She was the family organizer, relied on for vacations and family reunions, and a skilled multitasker.

She is survived by Bill and her sons, Nicholas and Colin, by her parents John and Naomi (Steege) Fackler, her siblings Kathy (John) Chapman, Karla (David) Grafton, John (Lee) Fackler, Dori Fackler, and numerous nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed.

Family and friends are invited to a celebration of her life on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 10:00am at Roller & Hapgood &Tinney Funeral Chapel at 980 Middlefield Road in Palo Alto.
