Begona and family, I just viewed the beautiful tribute video of Mr. Hughes. You can easily see that he lived a  happy and blessed life.  He was smiling in every picture!   In the days to come, I will be praying for you and hope that you will find peace.

Our family extends sympathy to the family. Al was one of my favorites at Food Products/Piemonte/TPP many years ago. He was kind, considerate, easy going, and always treated his subordinates with respect. I bumped in to him a couple of times since and he never changed. That smile will never leave us. Super guy... I hate to see him pass. We'll all keep him in our memories and his family in our hearts.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Al was the sweetest gentleman and had a big heart for sure! He loved talking to everyone and making you smile. I will never forget the time we all went to dinner at Miyabi's  he told them it was my Birthday, when it wasn't, so i would get a cake and they would sing to me. He loved to make you laugh. And I loved how he was always asking about my precious husband and how Donnie was doing.. You will be missed Mr. Al for sure, please tell Donnie I love and miss him too! Your friend Leah

Al has been a real friend for over 25 years.  He served his country as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.  You could always depend on him.  You would never meet a friendlier person and he did not hide his opinion on anything.  RIP Al.

Al was a dear friend and person.  Always reliable to fix anything at my house or my clients' homes.
He knew everything about houses and construction and was the Best.
 Al always talked with such praise and love about his wife Begona and his children & grandchildren & his faith
   in God and his Church .
I am so saddened about losing Al.  He was a wonderful man and will be missed.

Begona and family, I was saddened to hear the news of Al's death. I have good memories of waiting on Al in the plumbing business. He was a good customer and I treasure his friendship. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

One memory I will never forget about Mr. Al was when I had just turned 10. Before I turned 10 he would always tell me I'm gonna be the big one O soon. I was having a birthday party on my 10th birthday. He pulled up to my drive way and I ran up to him and said "Mr. Al Mr. Al I'm the big one O, can you believe that!" as I said that he just had a huge smile on his face. He brought so much joy!
