Grady Hughes Obituary

Grady Howard Hughes entered into the joy of his Master on January 27, 2024, in Canyon, Texas.

Funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at Arden Road Baptist Church, Amarillo, Tx, with Rev. Aaron Denson and Rev. Gradon Schaub officiating. Burial will be in Memorial Gardens. Arrangements are made by Holley Funeral Home.

Pallbearers are Gradon Schaub, Steven Snider, Jeffrey Snider, Tyler Schaub and Ryan Lauhoff.

He was born on July 29, 1935, in Coryell County, Texas to Jap Arnold and Katie Gaye Hughes. He married Rose Charlene Camp on May 31, 1959, in Lovington, NM. In addition to being a loving husband, he was a devoted father to his two daughters, Vila and Leanna.

Grady served his country in the United States Army, worked for New Mexico electric companies for 12 years, farmed for 25+ years, and ended as a truck driver for Techline before retiring. He was a member of Arden Road Baptist Church for over 30 years, serving the church as an usher and deacon. He enjoyed traveling, taking his grandchildren on a special trip, as well as being an avid woodworker. His love of farming began as a child when he joined friends on custom wheat harvest trips to Kansas & Nebraska. One weekend, Grady took a trip on his own to the Hereford area to find his custom harvest friends, the Sawyers.  He came home, sat Mom down and explained that he was finished with electric companies and would like to get back to his love of farming.  He had found a farm north of Hereford that needed a hired hand.  He asked mom if she would take a trip to go see the farm.  Well……that was the beginning of their lives as farmers.

He is preceded in death by his mother and father, his brother Bill, and his beloved Uncle Cecil and Aunt Nina.

He is survived by his wife Charlene; his daughters Vila Snider of Lewisville and Leanna Schaub and her husband Russell of Canyon; 2 sisters-in-law, Kathryn Daniels of Duncan, OK and Leona Eubanks of San Antonio; 5 grandchildren, Gradon Schaub and wife Courtney of Granbury; Steven Snider of Lewisville; Kaleigh Lauhoff and husband Ryan of Bushland; Jeffrey Snider of Euless; and Tyler Schaub of Amarillo; and 16 great-children, as well as special cousins in the Austin area.

The family suggests that memorials be made to Arden Road Baptist Church Missionary fund.
