My deepest sympathies to dear Phyllis and all the Albea kids who grew up with the Lacey kids on Winding Way. I remember Hubert as a generous, joyful spirit, and I learned from knowing him the power of giving to others and celebrating life as much as possible. Enjoy your heavenly home, Hubert. God will pick up the tab from now on. ❤️🙏

So many fond memories of Hugh..........from working with him (oh the stories he could tell) and laughing with him in Key Colony Beach. He will be greatly missed!

Hube was like a father to me while I was growing up. His love and acceptance was invaluable in so many ways. Love to Hubert and his loving family. You all will always be near and dear to me.
