Hugh Paterson PhotoHugh passed away suddenly but peacefully on February 4, 2013 with his family by his side. He will be deeply missed by his boys, Mike and Chris, their wives, Judy and Dany, and the many good friends and family who loved him so. But most of all, GPaw will miss the love of his grandkids – David, Christopher, Briana, and Jordan. They meant the world to him. Hugh is predeceased by his parents, Jack and Edith, and his sister, Linda; and is survived by his sister, Anne, and his brothers, Alan and Rob, and their families. Hugh was an extremely sensitive, caring, and giving individual. He was a dedicated teacher who cared deeply for his students. He loved sport (especially hockey, skiing and sailing), he loved to travel and experience new cultures, and simply lived life to the fullest – Hugh did nothing half way. Hugh loved architecture and art and greatly admired the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, filling our homes with his replica Lloyd Wright stained glass. But, above all, Hugh loved his friends and family. He was extremely proud of his kids and grandkids, and relished in each and every accomplishment. We miss him dearly. Friends may visit with the family at KITCHING, STEEPE & LUDWIG FUNERAL HOME, 146 Mill Street North, Waterdown on Saturday, February 9, 2013, 2-5 pm. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice. Please sign the Book of Condolence at
