Hugh Hondorp


~ reading the morning paper with a hot cup of coffee

~ sampling a craft brew or rich merlot

~ quietly tending to his garden

These moments are only a small part of the rich life Hugh led.  His easygoing smile displayed on the outside illuminated a deeper purpose on the inside ~ a genuine caring and love for his family, friends and animals.  Hugh was a wonderful husband, amazing father and grandfather, and a true friend to so many.  His legacy will live on in those who were fortunate to have shared in his journey.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Hondorp Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following


Animal Friends for Education and Welfare (A.F.E.W.)

A.F.E.W. is not a shelter, but rather a network of foster homes that provide housing and socialization for the animals that come into the organization's care until a home can be found for them.  A.F.E.W. also works to raise public awareness of animal issues by promoting public education in fostering respect, understanding and care for all animals, as well as special emphasis on spaying and neutering to help stop pet overpopulation.

Hugh had a true love for animals ~ especially his loving dogs Gibbs, Cassie, Bosley, Brewster, Kenny, and Rizzo, and his cats Radar and Trapper.  He was a founder and President of Animal Friends of Education & Welfare, established in 1993.  A donation to the cause he founded would be a lasting tribute to his memory and his legacy.
