With loved ones by his side, at the Exeter Villa, on Monday, July 18, 2016, of Exeter in his 89th year. Best friend and loving partner of Lynda Johns.

Dear grandfather of Mark (Brianne), Jeff (Tawnya), Stephen (Natasha), Patrick (Shannon), Scott, Caroline, Kurt; and great-grandfather of five. Dear brother of Bob and Maureen Davis. Hugh will also be missed by Lynda’s family. Predeceased by his sisters Dorothy Davis (2008), Marion Taylor (2016) and her husband Grant, and his parents Ernest and Edith (Brock) Davis. Hugh was the manager of the Exeter PUC for 37 years, and worked for Ontario Hydro prior to that. He was dedicated to the town of Exeter, always wanting the best utilities for its residents. He always spoke very highly of his staff, and would always remark that the efficiency of the PUC was due to the commission and staff he worked with. Hugh’s family would also like to thank the Exeter Villa for their support of Hugh.
