In Memory


Eddie Hughes

William "Ed" Hughes passed away December 11, 2016 at Olathe Hospice House.  His death was a result of many illnesses caused by his exposure to Agent Orange while he served in Vietnam.

Ed was a member of the Masons, Shriners, Lions Club, American Legion,  and was a charter member of Vietnam Veterans of America 912.  He participated in the riffle squad that performed many salutes for our fallen veterans.  He was active in the fund raisers to help patients at the VA hospital in Kansas and helped start "Welcome Home"  breakfasts for the Gulf War Veterans to insure they were not treated like the Vietnam veterans had been treated when they came home from war.

Survivors include  two daughters, Melinda Ashby and Janette Lute, both of Ottawa, KS.
