An area resident for over fifty years, he had been employed as a Quality Control Engineer at Rotron for thirty-six years. Hugo served in the U. S.

He valued his community and was a good neighbor. Many years ago, he had been an active volunteer in Scouting, as well as a member of the Left Footer's Square Dance Group. He enjoyed being "part of the crew" that would man the chicken bar-b-que at the Overlook Methodist Church. He was also a past member of the Woodstock Fire Department. Hugo enjoyed camping with his family across America, and had an innate angling talent for fishing streams, lakes, and saltwater.
