Our son passed away tragically
Without a goodbye or a reason
We will always remember him in a thousand
A song, a place, his favourite food, his laugh
And now we see him in his children.
Always loved, forever missed.

William Augustine Hughes
William Augustine Hughes passed away peacefully May 22, 2010.
Thirteenth born of a family that led to 6 children and 2 adults living in a 2 bedroom house in Dublin's South side. Born in 1928, Dad was the first of his family born in a hospital.
A few months short of his 82nd birthday Bill passed away having had, in his own words "a long run".
Liam outlived not only his parents, Michael and Brigid (nee Kinlough) also his sister Bridie, brothers Jack, Mick, Paddy and Brendan. Though not the tallest, he did tell tall tales as expected from a good Irishman! Trained as a draughtsman he worked briefly in that field before joining Dunnes for many years and then fate and a wee bit of an incident on a motorbike resulted in Bill coming to Canada with his old friend Eddie "for a year" as one of the first volunteer Frontier Lay Apostles.
In Prince George, Bill met another volunteer from Dublin and it was not long before Eileen White chased him down and they enjoyed 51 long years together. Government employment, working with those seeking jobs as well as those new to the country, was briefly interrupted with a trip to Eire accompanied by his wife Eileen and four children to Eire - the first visit in 15 years - but not their last."
Retirement saw Mom and Dad travel around the world, sometimes to visit the children they had encouraged to travel, another to do volunteer work with the UN Refugee program - appropriate as they were immigrants themselves. Bill and Eileen then moved from the cold North to Chemainus in 1995 and enjoyed Vancouver Island life and its people, making new friends and assisting those in need through local activities such as Meals On Wheels.
Lack of training on piano and voice did not deter Bill from trying his hand at both, joining in or solo with "Girls Were Made to Love and Kiss" taking a close second to "You Are My Heart's Delight". Bill was always ready with a story to entertain or a bite and a drink to fill you up. Friends old and new were always welcome to visit or stay at a moment's notice.
A visit to Ireland and Europe in 2009 was postponed after Bill broke his leg. Progress with "the new leg" was going well until Dad entered the hospital in May as his years finally caught up with him.
Bill is remembered by his wife Eileen, children Phyl, Pat, Joan and Chris, grandchildren Bailey, Zak, Megan, Sara, Ashten and Hanna, great grandchild Rowan, and many friends and relatives both here and overseas including the old country - Hughes, Bellew, McGreevy, Stanley, etc., and in particular Lena, his friend from childhood in the old neighbourhood.
Bill and the family also say a big thank you to the friendly and expert medical staff they came to know during their time in Duncan, Chemainus, Victoria and Prince George.
Service was held in Chemainus on May 25th.
Service to be held June 2, 7pm at Domano Chapel, 6500 Southridge (Domano Renewal Centre), Prince George.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the charity of your choice.
