Hugh’s parents Albert Spencer Myrick and (PAT)Fordham Myrick were Greensboro natives but lived for a short while in Charlotte where Hugh was born on May 20, 1951. He graduated from Greensboro Page High School in 1969. Hugh was a natural born athlete throughout his life playing football, basketball and running track at Aycock Junior High school. He lettered in football, basketball and track at Page High School. He was in the choir and the Buccaneers quartet at Page. He once sang a solo ”You will never Walk Alone.”  “When you walk through the storm, hold your head up high”; those words were very appropriate for the storm that he went through. Hugh was a graduate of UNC Pembroke with a BA degree.

Hugh was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed home gardening and landscaping, fishing, hunting, and golf. Hugh always had a smile and an upbeat attitude. He had a great sense of humor and a deep love for his family and friends.

Hugh was a devoted father to his son Luke and stepdaughter, Danielle.  He was very proud and enjoyed supporting all their activities. He was a loving and supportive husband to his wife Cynthia. Hugh loved spending time at the family cottage at Sunset Beach.
