Hubert Alfred Brown “Hugh” was born Aug. 1st, 1939, weighing 1 pound 8 ounces, in Harrison, Arkansas to Ambrose and Rubie (Huckabee) Brown. Hugh moved to Idaho with his widowed mother and younger brother, Don, in 1944 and settled in Wilder where he attended schools. He married his best girl, Kay Schneider in 1961. Hugh entered the Army in 1962 serving at Fort Ord, California as a mechanic and then in the Military Police. After finishing active duty, he worked for his uncles at Two Hucks Mohawks service station in Fremont California, then as a chemical reactor operator at Borden Chemical. Hugh and Kay moved back to Idaho in 1965 with their three children. Hugh worked as a chemical analyst for Feed Service and then decided he could better provide for his family as a truck driver. Hugh then went on to drive truck for Union Seed Co. driving millions of miles across the US and Canada. His desire to be close to home prompted him to start his own landscape grading and excavation business. He fine- graded many new homes in the Treasure Valley as well as backhoe and excavation work for many local builders. He loved playing in the dirt. Hugh was the most avid hunter and fisherman you would ever meet. He loved running the Snake River in his jet boat to catch bass and catfish and loved taking his pontoon boat to CJ Strike for perch and crappie. He dearly loved deer, elk and upland bird and waterfowl hunting. Hugh was an amateur radio operator (HAM), his call letters were K7HGH. He was a life member of Voice of Idaho radio group. His greatest love was his family. He enjoyed nothing better than fishing with his grandchildren and his good friends, and most especially, brother-in-law Dan Book. Hugh is survived by his wife Kay, his daughter Denise “Cricket” Roskos (David), grandchildren Elisabeth Kuehn (Chris), Keegan Brown (Taylor), and 7 great grandchildren, brothers Donald Brown and Haskell Martin. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sons Donnie and David, infant daughter Debbie, grandson Justin and his sister Stella Saunders. Please wear casual, comfortable clothes to the service. He wasn’t a suit and tie type of guy. The family would like to express gratitude to Nampa Davita Dialysis and Blue Bird Hospice of Meridian. Much love and thanks to Dan Book for the countless hours given in support of Hugh’s needs.
