A Life Well Lived

Sad news in the Hughes-Kane-Lietz family. My grandfather, Guy Hughes, has passed away. Grandpa battled cancer for many years but decided he was ready to meet Christ. He was one of the best men I will ever know. He served his God, his country, his family, his community, and his church. Grandpa led men in prayer during wars, and brought lost, imprisoned men to prayer through his KAIROS prison ministry. He was 81 years old and deeply loved his wife of 56 years. He had a huge heart, was a big Longhorn fan, and he enjoyed traveling the world. Grandpa was the heart of a large and loving family, and he helped make each and every one of us a better person.

A song by Emerson Drive called "A Good Man" describes him well...

"(He left) a legacy of love and laughs and honesty behind (him)… (He) lived a good life, loved a good wife, and always helped someone in trouble... He was a father, brother, neighbor and a friend. He was a Good Man."

It may sound trite, but the very best way to describe Guy Hughes is as a Good Man. The very best man. And he will be missed.

He sounds like a fabulous man, who had a wonderful influence on so many. Grandparents are the greatest and have so much to share. It's wonderful that you got to know him so well. Some people don't have that opportunity. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
