Terrence Hugo

Obituary of Terrence Eugne Hugo

Please share a memory of Terrence to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Terry E. Hugo was born April 2, 1946 to Lorraine (Cnudde) and Eugene Hugo. He was their only child. Terry was born in Bay City and raised in Essexville. He graduated from St. John High School and attended Delta College before joining Essexville Public Safety. While starting out in public safety, Terry also owned a fencing company. He worked his way from patrolman to the Director of Public Safety before retiring in July 2000. Terry was a graduate of both the FBI National Academy and the National Fire Academy.

  Family was very important to him. He has three children: Bruce Hugo, Barry (Sheila) Hugo, and Stephanie (Bill) Brown. Terry’s grandchildren were his world. He leaves Sophia Hugo, Chris Hugo, Nicole (Devin) Morris, Dylan, Dalton, and Abigail Brown who will forever remember their “Puppa wisdom”. He also was able to enjoy two great-children, Aiden and Ava Morris. His time spent with his grandchildren were his most treasured and he’d share their stories over and over. From traveling to and watching countless football and volleyball games, Terry’s love for sports and competition showed through. From heckling refs to after game chats, his passion for their grandchildren’s adventures were shared. He is survived by his wife and best friend, Kathy (Shreve) Hugo. They enjoyed 30 years of marriage, and their contract was renewed annually. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Maureen Shreve and Ginny and Tom Darnell and a cousin who was like a sister to him, Rosemary Fehrenbach. He is also survived by his “much older” children’s mother, Anne Asselin Barnard.

  His summer mission was to mow the straightest lines on the block and to have the finest manicured lawn in town. Besides his obsession with his lawn, Terry also enjoyed several golf leagues throughout the years. He loved his travels to Venice, Florida during the winter. His favorite pastimes were shark tooth hunting, watching the manatees at the jetty, and napping on the lanai. His law enforcement passion never left him, and he continued that through his avid reading. His sense of humor, sarcasm, and cussing ability will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him. They surely will carry on his traditions.

  A Memorial Service will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 2, 2023 at Trahan Funeral Chapel with Fr. Jack Johnson presiding. Private interment will be at Floral Gardens Mausoleum. Visiting hours will be on Monday from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Those considering a donation in Terry’s name please consider Disability Resource Service Center (DSRC), St. Jude’s Children Hospital, or your favorite charity.
