Obituary - Jerry Hughes

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/23/24 | 2/23/24

Jerry W. Hughes of Conesville passed away peacefully with family by his side on February 11, 2024, following a short illness. Born on August 2, 1948 in Stamford, NY, Jerry lived his entire life in Conesville surrounded by the mountains that he loved to call home.

Upon graduating from Gilboa-Conesville Central School in 1966; Jerry attended Cobleskill College where he met his wife of 54 years while receiving his degree in agricultural engineering.

An employee of the New York Power Authority for 32 years, Jerry also spent his time welding and running his logging/ firewood business. Following his retirement; he spent many years enjoying camping with his family, and became a regular at many of the local car shows where he enjoyed sharing his love of Ford Mustangs and classic cars.

A proud local with an unmatched gift for gab, Jerry never met a stranger, and was a friend to all. He loved to visit and share numerous anecdotes of his time growing up in the area. Nothing made him more proud than his family and the life he built in the country that he loved.

Jerry is survived by his wife Wendy, three children, Kelly Hammel, Tracey (Christopher) Goodwin, Cory (Kim) Hughes, as well as his six grandchildren, Jason and Abigail Hammel, Emerson and Maya Goodwin and Chloe and Olivia Hughes. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and a long list of friends.
