Hugh and Agnes were friends and neighbors for 15 years. Built our house that we dearly loved and was always there with a funny comment. I enjoyed watching Hugh wash his work truck every Saturday afternoon. We still have and use the flower stand he made for Jane. He will be missed around Greater Lafayette.

So sorry for your loss. "Uncle Huge" is what I called him, and I was "Dr. Jim", the concrete doctor to him and the crew. He is absolutely one my my "top 10", and we go back a long way. I miss him already.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

So sorry to the Galema family for your loss. He is truly one of the nicest and most honorable men I have ever known. A talented craftsman, impeccable integrity, honest and fair in business, loving husband and father, and a quick wit—Hugh was a special person. He left a wonderful legacy with his family and the homes he built. He will be missed.
