Hugh died at St. Simon's Island, Ga., on Nov. 12, 2002, at the age of 88. A native of Orange, N.J., he came to us from Choate.
A graduate of the US Brewing Academy, Hugh began his career with Peter Doelger's in Newark. He then went to New Philadelphia Brewery in Ohio, and then was brewmaster for Pan-American Industries in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, before he retired. He also worked for Schiffenhaus Packaging and Displays in Newark.
In our 40th yearbook, Hugh listed his hobbies as woodworking and golf. In addition to his membership in Sea Island Golf Club, he also was a member of the Essex County Country Club in West Orange, the Dorado Country Club in Puerto Rico, and the Santo Domingo Country Club in the Dominican Republic.
A memorial mass was held at St. Williams Church on St. Simon's Island, where he had lived for more than 20 years. To his devoted widow, Sherry, daughters Barbara B. Power and Lindsay B. George, son Hugh III, seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and a nephew, William R. Barrett Jr. '66, we offer our sincere condolences.
