Dennis L. Hughes

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — Dennis Leroy Hughes, age 72, Saybrook Township, Ohio, went to meet our Lord and Savior on Friday, June 28, 2013.

Dennis was born on June 5, 1941, in Baltimore, Md., the son of Kenneth S. and Josephine (Jurio) Hughes. He married Millicent Ann Alex on July 28, 1962. His first child, Kym Elizabeth was born on May 29, 1965, and his son, David Lloyd was born on Sept. 26, 1966.

He worked 38 years for the Social Security Administration, starting Oct. 8, 1961, as a file clerk in Woodlawn, Md., and retiring Dec. 31, 1999, as District Manager of the Ashtabula District Office. In the 38 years, he worked in Maryland, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, returning to Ohio where he retired and lived the rest of his life.

He was a 30 year member of St. John Lutheran Church in Geneva, where he served in various positions. He was a Sunday school teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, Chairman of Evangelism, Elder, Chairman of the Elders and Stephen Ministry Leader. He was always willing to share the faith that he held and lived-that our salvation and eternal life with God in heaven were paid for by Jesus on the cross. Following his massive heart attack and cardiac arrest on August 25, 2011, he felt God allowed him “more time” to accomplish a task. Since the Bible tells us that faith is a gift from God and the strengthening and maintaining it is through the Word of God, Dennis felt compelled to tell others that they needed to be in church regularly to hear the Word that will maintain their faith.

Dennis is survived by Millicent, his wife of 50 years; daughter, Kym (Bill) Tome; son, David (Lorie) Hughes; four grandchildren, Bryce Tome, Alixandra Hughes, Dillon Hughes and Gage Tome; and a brother, Donald (Joan) Hughes of BelAir, Md.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his first grandchild, Austin Elliot Tome, in 2010 at the age of 14 after a three and a half year battle with cancer.
