Obituary: Michael John Hughes

9/12/1974 – 4/24/2023

We are heartbroken and sad to announce Michael “Mike” Hughes died on Sunday the 24th of April in Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Michael’s absolute love was exploring the beautiful canyons and National Parks of the south west, on foot. He has made many backpacking trips into the Grand Canyon. 

He is survived by his son Asher, his brother Nate, his mother Mary Daubner Hughes, his father Richard Hughes and his stepmother Bic. Mike’s grandparents all deceased, are Steve and Marie Daubner, of Ellison Bay,  WI and paternal Grandparents Byron and Ora Hughes of Rochester New York. His beautiful dog Lily misses him very much. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Grand Canyon Conservancy in Mike’s name. Thank you to all that have reached out with their love. A Memorial service will take place at a later date.
