In Memory of

Jerry Hughes

 

 

It is with regret to announce the passing of JERRY GLENN HUGHES who for several years was the official photographer for the Glacier Society. Mr. Hughes, a Naval photographer, was stationed aboard the USS GLACIER during OPERATION DEEP FREEZE and was an assistant WHITE HOUSE photographer. After his Naval career, he graduated from the Rochester Institute with a degree in optics and was employed by ITEK and LOCKHEED in the top-secret world of photo satellites. He was a world traveler and deep ocean sailor. May he rest in Peace...

With deep regret I pass this message along. Jerry was one of the several Glacier Crew who led the initial campaign to "Save the Glacier" with Jim Tinch and Jerry Seeney. We will miss him terribly! He worked alongside myself and the other volunteers with dedication and kindred spirit. He most graciously invited the East Coast Team to his home on one of the extended visits to San Francisco. His lovely wife Martie was always nearby, a great cook!
