Beverly Legend Hugh Nelson Passes at 94

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Hugh Nelson, on the legendary Beverly High athlete’s passing on January 17 at the age of 94. Hugh was a superb baseball and football player, a member of the Beverly High Athletic Hall of Fame and for many years a fierce but friendly competitor on the Beverly Golf and Tennis Club golf course. A nicer man you will never meet. My father was one of Hugh’s chums from their high school days and could talk about his greatness as an athlete and man for hours. Hugh in return thought the world of my dad, “Ol'” Russ Larrabee. It was an honor to know Hugh, most recently through the friendship my son Kevin shared with Hugh’s grandson, Jeff.
