Donald L. Hughes - 87

7/27/1930 - 9/14/2017

Clinton, IA

Donald (Don) Leo Hughes, age 87, of Bryant, Iowa, passed away Thursday, September 14, 2017, at Mercy Medical Center in Clinton, Iowa. Visitation will be held Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 2:00 to 7:00 P.M. at Pape Funeral Home, Clinton, Iowa. Prayers of the Rosary will be at 6:00 P.M. A funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 A.M. on Monday, September 18, 2017, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Sugar Creek, Iowa. Burial will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Bryant, Iowa. Pallbearers will be Cade Hughes, Loran Jacobsen, Floyd Marx, Dustin Rickertsen, Eugene Roling, and Michael Thiede. Honorary Pallbearers will be his four brothers Paul, Robert, Thomas, and Dennis Hughes; Harvey Evers, and Reynold Platt. Don was born in Brookfield Township, rural Elwood, on July 28, 1930, to Leo and Madeline (LaFayette) Hughes. He quickly learned the value of hard work by helping on the farm, as well as being employed to earn money to support the family. He graduated from Elwood High School in 1948. A hardworking, rugged man, Don loved being outdoors and working the land. He began farming when corn was picked by hand and workers walked behind teams of horses and oxen. He greatly enjoyed farming in the Charlotte and Bryant areas his entire life. In addition to farming, Don bought a milk truck and drove 130 miles a day picking up milk cans. He then went to work at Clinton Engines foundry, where he lifted 25,000 pounds a day of lead pail molds and where he met the love of his life. Don married Linda Thiede on April 20, 1963, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Sugar Creek, Iowa. Both Don and Linda were strong supporters of education, and they graciously established an endowment fund for scholarships. Their generosity has helped many young people in Clinton and Jackson Counties to further their education. The things most important to Don were his faith, family, and farming. He was a member of St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s Church, Sugar Creek. He served on St. Mary’s Church Council and Cemetery Board and taught high school catechism for a number of years. He was also a member of the Goose Lake Lions Club, Preston Knights of Columbus, and Northeast School Board. He greatly enjoyed following his children and grandchildren’s activities, traveling, and playing cards. After losing his beloved wife of thirty-nine years, he relished traveling with his grandchildren, whom he lovingly referred to as his “little monsters”, to Canada, South Dakota, Florida, Texas, and Colorado. He even tackled white water rafting at age eighty in Glacier National Park. One of the highlights of his life was seeing his beloved Cubs win the 2016 World Series. With twenty-seven year of sobriety, Don regularly attended AA meetings where he helped to mentor others. He will be greatly missed by Snoopy, his dog and constant companion. Don is survived by a daughter, Jeanne (Marty) Seyller of Downers Grove, Illinois, and a son Greg (Robyn) Hughes of Charlotte, Iowa. His is also survived by three grandchildren, Haleigh, Nicolle and Cade Hughes and two step-grandchildren, Emily (Nick) Hauser and Julia Seyller. He leaves behind four brothers, Paul (Denyse) Hughes of Maquoketa, Robert (Barbara) Hughes of Delmar, Dr. Thomas (Mary) Hughes of Geneseo, and Dennis (Debbie) Hughes of Park View, and many nieces and nephews. He was proceeded in death by his parents; his loving wife, Linda, who passed away on June 2, 2002; his uncle, James Hughes, whom he farmed with for over forty years; and his godson, Dillon Hughes. In lieu of flowers, the family has established a memorial fund to purchase park benches to be placed in Lyons, Iowa, and a beautification project for St. Mary’s Cemetery, Bryant, Iowa.

    When my brothers and I would help dad with chores, one of the highlights of our trip would be if we stopped at Don and Linda's. Don would always immediately offer us cookies and a can of pop. I'm going to miss driving by and honking at Don either sitting on his chair in the garage or on the mower. Don was great and will be missed by many!
