Terrence “Terry” James Hughes, age 64, died suddenly at home on Saturday February 16, 2013. He was born on October 20, 1948 in Columbus, Ohio to the late Dr. & Mrs. Thomas M. Hughes, Sr.; he is also preceded in death by sister Mary E. (Hughes) Mitchell; brother John P. Hughes; infant sister Anne Hughes; father-in-law Wayne Wright and brother-in-law Larry “Barney” Jones.  Those who knew Terry well will remember his devotion to his family, Notre Dame and Lake Erie.  As a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, Terry proudly served his country from 1967-1971.  Following his service in the Marines, Terry graduated from Ohio University in 1976, where he met his wife and best friend, Paula Wright. For the last 15 years he was employed by the Franklin County Clerk of Courts.  Terry was the beloved husband for 34 years of Paula and proud father of children Erin (Brandon) Caldwell and Patrick.

Dear Paula, Erin and Patrick,

Please accept our most sincere condolences over the tragic passing of Terry. Whether having a beer at a party, sharing our feelings on Notre Dame football or helping us with car/boat titles, he always did it with a smile on his face. He always asked about our kids before talking about his own, and always had a story to tell, be it football, or family or Lake Erie.

We will continue to keep him and all of you in our prayers. God bless all of you.


David and Beth

I had the great opportunity to see Terry about twice a month through work. We always had a great time talking about movies, his grand-children, and going to Lake Erie. Terry always seemed very fond of spending time with his family at Lake Erie. Me and my family's deepest sympathy and prayers are with the Hughes family. I feel truly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Terry, and will miss him dearly.
