    Born in 1928 in Newtonville, NS, Hugh started his military career as a Sapper with the Royal Canadian Engineers and served in the Korean War with 23rd Field Squadron (1952-53). After Korea he continued his military career in Chilliwack and Esquimalt, BC; Camp Borden, ON; Whitehorse, YT; Regina and Moose Jaw, SK; and Shearwater, NS; as well as in Cyprus with the UN Peacekeeping Force. During his career, he made a Trade change into the Foreman of Works field and, during this phase, he achieved his journeyman carpentry certificate and Engineering Technologist qualification.

    Upon his retirement, he went to work for the Saskatchewan Department of Health where he travelled extensively throughout Saskatchewan dealing with the design and upgrading of hospitals.
