i knew and worked with Hugh for many years during his tenure at Atlas Steel. He was a kind and caring man of high character and unmatched integrity. Faithful in all matters of personal and professional responsibility he made a lasting impression on all who knew him. God only made one Hugh Buzzard and he will be deeply missed.

Rest in peace my dear friend. You will not be forgotten....

Hugh was a great guy that I always enjoyed talking to. He took great pride in attending his grandchildren's sporting events. I was always amazed that he and Ginny would drive 2 hours to Canonsburg to watch a basketball game! Heaven gained an angel.

Ms. Ginny, we were so deeply saddened to hear that Mr. Hugh had passed. Although we only met you two 4 years ago when Anthony came to Marietta...you made us feel we had known you for a lifetime. You both made us feel like family from the start. We can never express how much your kindness and friendship meant to Anthony, and to our entire family. Mr.Hugh and Anthony shared their love of their alma mater, Linsly...And their love of Coleman's Fish! May you, your children and grandchildren be comforted in knowing how many lives he touched. He was a gift to the men of the Marietta Men's Basketball Team. Thank you for sharing him with us!

Barbara and I were deeply saddened to hear of Hugh's passing. Our deepest condolences to You and your family. Having known Hugh for over 40 years, and having worked together with him at three separate companies over those years, leaves me with many fond memories of Hugh. So many of us have a lot of acquaintances, but Hugh truly had many friends. I will remember him for his love of family, love of God and for the value that he put on his friendships. Hugh will be certainly be missed, but his memory will be alive in all of us.
