Hugh Henry emigrated to St. Thomas from Antigua in the late 1950’s. He started working for the Education Department in 1978 and retired from the Property and Procurement Department in 2007.

Hugh spent many of his early years on St. Thomas working as head waiter and maître d at the Virgin Islands Hilton Hotel and the Virgin Isle Hotel. Hugh also managed a paper company in St. Thomas until it burned down in the 1960s. He loved cricket and was instrumental in the start of cricket on St. Thomas; he was among the first incorporators of a cricket club and he was a team captain.

Hugh was a serious body builder throughout his life, loved to argue about politics with his friends, enjoyed meditating on the book of Psalms, and loved his family.

Hugh’s lifelong friends were Leona Hodge, George Goodwin, Keithley Joseph, Joseph Hennis, Lionel Jacobs, Pedrito Lanclos and a host of others too numerous to mention. He was related to the Elvins and Henrys of St. John's, and the Lakes of Cedar Grove, Antigua.
