Self-taught baker: first of bread, then of lemon poppyseed cake generously shared with friends and family. Music lover, Ice Dogs fan and hugger par excellence. A gentle and kind man who loved people and made friends wherever he went all through his life. Hughie always had a twinkle in his eye and loved a good story.
