Commander Wayne L. Hughes

In Memory of 

Commander Wayne L. Hughes

Date of Birth: June 26, 1928

Date of Death: Dec 31, 2015

 

The following was written by Craig Kissock of Travis Settlement

 

For me to honor Bud, one must first understand the kind of relationship we shared. I’m sure that anyone that ever overheard any of our phone conversations would have thought “how in the world do two guys find that much to laugh about’” Let’s just say that we experienced more laughs than any two guys should ever be able to have, when they are stone cold sober. So, everyone better put on their seat belts. Bud would not have wanted it, any other way.
