William C. “Bill” Hughes


Of North Braddock, age 68 on Friday August 26, 2016.

Bill was the beloved husband of Dawn Strub for many years;

Dear brother of Daniel Hughes of Florida, Dennis Hughes of California, Deborah Sklenar of Turtle Creek, Orville Hughes of Texas, Cynthia Alfer of North Braddock, and Ted Hughes of Huntingdon, and loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Bill is preceded in death by his parents Orville Hughes and Thelma Nash, as well as his brothers Ron, Roy, Robert, and Roderick Hughes, and his sister Candice Hughes.


Bill lived his life, as a giving person. He was always helping friends and neighbors in any way he could. Anyone who knew Bill would not be surprised that he lived his final breath trying to help and provide for others. He will be missed so much.

Bill was a Mechanic at Walmart of North Versailles for many years. He also worked at the Jet Air Produce Yard in the Strip District in his younger days. He was also a die-hard Steeler fan and loved watching the games with his family and friends.

I will miss seeing Bill at Walmart. He was a great guy and Co-worker. I'll miss his Saturday morning greeting to me as we walked into work, 'Well, we're here",, and just joking around.Bill, you truly will be missed by all. IN GODS PRESENCE"

I remember all the Sundays you came to the house to watch the Steeler game and have dinner with us while Dawn worked and how we laughed at my Dad while he hated on the Steelers. My best memories are when I would get you up to dance at a party or karoake to what I call our song, "Play That Funky Music White Boy." LOL. My ultimate best memory is when you called me Baby Girl. Regardless of anything, I have always loved you. I am glad we understood each other in the end and even for a short while, I am glad you returned on Sundays just to spend time with us. I know my Dad is looking out for you even more so now than on earth. Give him my love and rest in peace.
P.S. If they have karoake in heaven, please do not fall off any chairs.

Uncle Bill,
Well, I guess this is goodbye until we see each other again. Even though we may not have talked or seen each other for a while, I have never stopped loving you. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I want to thank you for being the man you were when you came to my Mom's a little while back on Sundays to spend time with us and to talk about my Dad. Regardless of what has happened in the past, you have and always will be loved. I remember you coming to the house for dinner on Sundays when Dawn would work and I would always nag you for your Steeler necklace when you died. You always would just laugh. I wish I can still nag you for it now. Although I cannot do anything with how our relationship turned out, I will never have any regrets of spending time with you and we always departed with an "I Love You." Please know that I will think of you often and remember our fun times.

Your Niece Carrie
