Dear Liz,
Your dad was one of a kind. He literally had a twinkle in his eye and so much love and laughter that I always felt so loved around him.  I remember how much he loved to cook and how he showed my mom how to cook the best roast possible.  

Sending love to you and your mom during this difficult time.
Love, Jen

A friend makes you laugh, shares good times, shows kindness, & displays concern for others.  Arkie had all of these qualities & many more.  We will miss him but we will find comfort in many cherished memories.  Alice & Liz we share in your sorrow and keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Alice and Liz as I sit and read this obituary with tears running down my cheeks, I smile so big with all the wonderful memories we shared growing up! There were so many! I laugh with my own family telling them so many stories because they know you and your Dad because of the connection that holds us together, even though we are grown. Although Liz, you and Jono never did have your "marriage and poodles" we share a special bond. In times of sadness and sorrow it helps to remember... Sending all my love to you

Alice and Liz,
I have been at a loss for words since I found out about Hugo.  My thoughts and Prayers have been with you both, I know how much he loved both of you.  It was such a pleasure working for him, he taught me, more then I think anyone will know, and I thank him for that.  Even though he is gone he will live forever in the hearts and memories of everyone that had the honor of knowing him, and especially in the Love that you all shared as a family.  May you find solace and comfort with Our Lord, in the times to come.  You will always be in my prayers.

I am very sorry for your loss. Hugo was a great man. He had a big heart and I was very honored to have known him. He gave my daughter a chance when she was in her teens. He hired her at his restaurant and because of him she has the greatest passion for cooking. He was a family friend of my dad the late Harold "Sonny" Steadman. My heartfelt condolences to his wife and family. God Bless and Rest In Peace Hugo. with love from Kelly and the Steadman family.
