1939 - 2019

Hugh William Greenwood was born March 16, 1939 on the family farm East of Lousana, and passed away April 16, 2019 Innisfail Health Center after a courageous battle with Cancer. The oldest son of Bill and Rhona Greenwood. Brother to Gordon, Wally and Dale. Hugh married his wife Marilyn October 6th 1956.
Hugh started as a truck driver, driving truck at 17 for his dad. In 1969 Hugh and Marilyn purchased two trucks and the Lousana Garage and went into business on their own. J.O. Smith and Sons of Wimborne gave Hugh his opportunity to haul pure bred cattle all over North America. It was during this time that Hugh’s great passion for driving all started.
Trucking was the career path until 1979 when Hugh decided to stay closer to home when he purchased the UFA bulk fuel station in Delburne. Hugh and Marilyn serviced the farming community for ten years. In 1989 Hugh traded his work boots for dress shoes and a tie and entered his career as a Sunlife Insurance agent. In early 2000 Hugh decided to retire and enjoy the simple things that he loved in life. In Hugh’s retirement he enjoyed his years behind the wheel of the school bus and the silage truck during harvest season at Skocdopole Ranches.
Born into a chuckwagon and horse racing family, Hugh’s first passion was the chuckwagon life. Driving chuckwagons and outriding was in Hugh’s blood and something he loved. So many memories were made and lifelong friendships began. When Hugh was 40 he hung up his saddle and laced up his skates to coach hockey and enjoy sports he loved. Many years of senior men’s hockey with the Trochu Arena’s gave Hugh the skills he needed to mentor young athletes in the community. Governor of the Central Alberta Hockey Association for years. Umping ball was also a great service Hugh gave the community. Many years were spent behind the plate umping competitive ball. Curling rinks all over Alberta Hugh would travel to. Many mixed drinks were had in the lounges above the ice over the years. The hobby to top all others over the years was golf. Nothing made Hugh happier than hitting the course. Some of Hugh’s favorite places on earth were on the golf course.
Hugh’s happiest of days were days he spent with his family. Traveling miles to watch high school rodeos, ball tournaments and hockey games gave Hugh much pride and enjoyment. Grandkids and great grandkids were the light of Hugh’s life. Sitting around the fire, spending hours at the lake or Christmas dinners were where Hugh’s happiest moments were spent.
Hugh leaves to mourn his wife Marilyn, daughter Roberta Lang, son Bill (Jane) Greenwood, son Warren (Loretta) Greenwood, and daughter Holly (Wayne) Skocdopole, grandkids Kyle (Shanon) Shingoose, Tyler (Lyndsay) Greenwood, Sean (Taylor Woodford) Greenwood, Paige Greenwood, Kelsie (Calvin Dicker) Greenwood, Jessica (Gerard) Michielson, Shaun Shepard, Cody Shepard, Brooke (Kelly Buhler) Skocdopole, Hope (Adam Ternes) Skocdopole, Luke Skocdopole, and Chase Skocdopole, great grandkids Rhett, Chloe, Carver, and Kayne Shingoose, and brothers Wally Greenwood and Dale Greenwood. Hugh is also survived by his sister in law Susan Greenwood and numerous nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Hugh’s life will be held at the Lousana Community Hall on Wednesday,
April 24, 2019 at 2:00. If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made to the Trey Purdie Memorial Scholarship. Heartland Funeral Services Ltd., Innisfail entrusted with arrangements. 403-227-0006.

Our condolences to the entire Greenwood family. We always enjoyed Hugh's stories and appreciated his knowledge of the history of the Lousana area. He was always kind and had to be one of the most optimistic people we ever met. He will always be missed.
