Basil Thomas James Hughes
March 2, 1944 – January 11, 2021
76, It is with great sadness that the family of Basil Hughes announces his sudden passing on January 11th, 2021, at home. Born in England, March 2nd, 1944, to Basil and Olive (nee Colley) Hughes, he immigrated to Canada with his family in 1958.
Basil is survived by his loving wife Diane (Kedy), sons James (Ruth), David (Vickey), Robert (Jodi), Glen (Jen), brothers Billy and Stuart (June), sister Violet, grandchildren Amanda Brown (Shawn), Tabitha Hughes, Zack Hughes, Chad Hughes, Garion Hughes, great grandchildren Sophia and Liam Brown, sister-in-laws Charlene Logan, Lillian Fraser (Billy) and brother-in-law Art Kedy, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Basil and Olive.
Basil enjoyed spending time with his friends, both at home in his garage, and at his camp. He will be greatly missed not only by his family, but by his buddies, in particular his brother Stuart, and friends Bruce, Gordie, Terry and Chris.
There will be no funeral service. A private gathering to celebrate Basil will be held at a later date.

Diane, the boys and families, so sorry to hear of Basils passing. I think of you all often and have many great childhood memories and laughs of all of our adventures growing up in Sheldrake Lake as neighbors and friends. With 8 boys between 2 houses we were a handful. Basil was always good to us and had a great sense of humor.. He’ll always be with you as Bill is with us...take care of each other. Maxx Marrs

Diane, I am so sorry to hear about Basil, a very sad time indeed, for you and the family. I will always remember the times in Five Island Lake when he came calling, looking for you at Anne’s. And the beautiful wedding where I caught your bouquet. Nice memories. Karen Holden (nee Coolen).
