  5. Bob Hugh was a great man who touched the lives of many people – but especially those of us who lived and grew up in Scio. Bob was my coach and a dear and close friend of our family. His family had the good fortune of having Bob as a father, husband and foster father. I am proud to have been able to have Bob call me a friend and his smile and gentle good nature will be sorely missed – not to mention his lifetime of service to many, many people. God Bless Bob Hugh and comfort Betty and all his beautiful children.

  6. Deepest sympathy to the Hugh family. Mr. Hugh was a wonderful principal to our building. He worked so hard to better the community that he loved so much. I will always have fond memories of Bob Hugh.
