Johnny Gaylan Hughes, age 56, of Birmingham passed away on Wednesday, October 24.
He graduated from Hewitt Trussville High School in 1980 and was an outstanding first chair trumpet player for the Hewitt Trussville Husky marching band. Johnny served in the retail industry for over 41 years and ultimately managed for Fresh Value Market Place. He was a kind soul who remained the rock of his family until his death.
He was known for being a hard worker and wonderful provider to his family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and many funny sayings. He was a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan, but most of all he was a loving son to his parents, devoted husband to his former wife, a loving father, and grandfather, a wonderful brother and good friend.
Johnny is survived by his former wife and mother of his children, Jenny Hughes; his three children, Jessica Ann Hughes, age 34 and his two grandchildren, Meadow and Maximus Brewster, Jordan Thomas Hughes, age 31 and Jonathan Hughes, age 24. He is also survived by his parents, Billie G. and Patricia Hughes; siblings, Debra Brown, Dianne Wood (Shawn), Greg Hughes and his fiancé, Shelly Muller, and Gary Hughes (Jennifer); twelve nieces and nephews, and seven great-nieces and nephews.
A funeral service will be held for Johnny at 10:00 a.m. on November 2, 2018, at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville. The visitation will be held one hour prior.
