Born in Independence, Kan., the son of the late Lloyd Lowrey and Jess (O'Connell) Hughes, he had moved to Barrington 43 years ago. He had earned his bachelor's degree and doctor of law degree from Washburn University, in Topeka, Kan., and his master's in health administration from the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis. Mr. Hughes had been assistant general counsel of Kansas Corp., in Topeka, and superintendent of the University of Wisconsin Hospital, before coming to Rhode Island Hospital. There he had served as the hospital's assistant director, deputy director, executive director and executive vice president, later being named the hospital's president. He served as president and CEO of Rhode Island Hospital for 12 years, until his retirement in 1985.

In an interview just before his retirement, Mr. Hughes offered a characteristically unassuming assessment of his years as president: "The major part of my role was to simply point the hospital in the right direction and have people be enthusiastic participants in its activity." Mr. Hughes's professional memberships included service as a chairman, president and trustee of the Hospital Association of Rhode Island (HARI), a president and trustee of the New England Hospital Assembly, and a member of the House of Delegates of the American Hospital Association. He also had served as board manager of the Bethany Home, in Providence, and as a trustee on the boards of many local organizations, including the St. Andrew School and the Barrington Senior Center. An Army veteran of World War II, he served in counterintelligence in the Marshall Islands and Japan.
