Hugh Maughan of Athens, TN left the cares of this world on Thursday November 5th at the age of 91. He was a member of Keith Memorial United Methodist Church for 51 years. A native of Ducktown Tennessee, Hugh was preceded in death by his mother, Claudia Griffin, his father, Taft Maughan, and step-mother, Gertrude Maughan, and by his son-in-law, Michael Shumer. He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 70 years Marilyn Mason Maughan. They were utterly devoted to each other in every way. His daughter, Susan E. Shumer. His beautiful granddaughters, who he was so proud of, Erin Carney (Craig) and Kristin Pratt (Justin). They will miss their “Grandaddy” dearly.

Special neighbors who were like family, Jessica and Lebron Skelton, and their daughter Baleigh, who will all miss their “Pa.” Special Neighbor friends, Kate, Holland, Dixie, Isabel, Ava, Eli, and Israel the “Lawnmower Man.” Hugh served his country with great distinction as a United States Marine in the Korean War during the height of the conflict.

His family is so immensely proud of his service to our nation and to the people of South Korea. Hugh was also a devout fan of Alabama Football, having season tickets for much of his life. He was a vigorous man who loved to help the members of his community. At one time, he mowed over 5 different yards in his neighborhood. An avid worker, he loved working in his beloved garden. “The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11.

What a true Blessing Hugh and Marilyn was to me. I was a short term care taker of (pa)&(ma). And grew to love them both. And Susan was a blessing also. You will be missed Hugh by so many people who you have touched there hearts. You were such a kind and gentle man and the love I seen between you two was rare and beautiful. Ma I pray for you for peace and guidance and strength to live on and Susan i pray that you find stength peace and comfort in God to help you get through this process with another loss. And to make the right decisions with your mom. Prayers are with you all. Gussie Hall

My Dad's yard was one of the five that Hugh regularly mowed. And that was just one of the many ways in which Hugh and Marilyn were truly wonderful neighbors to my parents. I am truly grateful to them both and send many healing thoughts to the family.
