Robert W. Hughes Obituary

On June 10, 2024, Robert W. Hughes, age 73 of Deptford, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by loved ones.


Beloved husband of Darlene (nee Kennedy). Loving father of Ryan (Kelly) Hughes, Courtney (Mike) Iuliucci, and Adam (Jenn) Hughes.  Also survived by 8 grandchildren Christian, Henry, Benjamin, Taryn, Aliya, Haleigh, Ava, and Alexa; one great-grandson Keyan; siblings Beverly (Richard) Ashman and Gary (Theresa); and many loving nieces and nephews.


Bob was raised in Clementon, NJ and graduated from Overbrook High School. He proudly served in the Army Reserves for over 20 years. He worked in customer service for Aqua American Water Co. in Blackwood before his retirement. He also formerly worked as a Phillies security officer, and was jubilantly on the field when they won the 1980 World Series. Bob was tremendously devoted to his children, attending every track meet, mall shopping trip, and soccer game for them. He became a Cub and Boy Scout leader where he made learning new things fun, and enjoyed teaching Army and life survival skills to anyone who would listen. Always quick with a joke, he had an infectious smile that could brighten the cloudiest day. He loved being "Pappy" to all his grandchildren and will be dearly missed.


Relatives and friends are invited to attend his viewing on Monday morning 9:30 am to 11 am at the: ORA L. WOOSTER FUNERAL HOME, 51 Park Blvd., Clementon, NJ 08021. Funeral services will begin at 11:00 am.  Interment will be private, and will follow at Gloucester County Veterans Cemetery with Military Honors.  


In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations can be made to fight Alzheimer’s at www.knightadrc.wustl.edu/donate.
