Greg Hughes has died
It is with sadness that I have to tell you Greg Hughes died on December 23 of an apparent heart attack. He was 75 years old. He will be buried in Ancaster, Ontario.
Over the years Greg was a very active ACT member. He certainly holds the record for the most ACT program advertising sold!! His last advertising was for Evita. He attended all shows, if in town, and was an avid participant of ACT reading clubs and/or ACT Outs/Aways whenever they were held.
But Greg’s interests and activities were broader than ACT. He was an avid reader and bridge player. He was very interested in Genealogy and had been active in that community for a long time. He loved classical music and attended concerts frequently, wherever they were held. Greg was also the first certified teacher of Scottish Country Dancing on PEI and ran a SCD group in Charlottetown for many years.
Greg worked for the Federal government for many years. He was with DVA when the decision was made to move the department headquarters from Ottawa to Charlottetown. He retired from DVA more than ten years ago. Since retirement he took the opportunity to travel fairly extensively, both on cruises to interesting locations like the South America (including Machu Picchu) and Egypt’s Nile, and to visit friends and family. ACT Trial by Jury members may remember Greg’s relatives sitting in on our first run through in Summerside.
Greg will be missed by his many friends in ACT.
