Panton, CPO who recently passed away. Hugh tirelessly gave of his time down
here in Florida for decades, volunteering and contributing to the FAOP, the
FCAAOP, as well as to our State O&P Licensure Board. Thanks Hugh.
Hi,Friends and relatives
…This is a pix of myself George and my brother HUGH on the right..
He was my HERO as a brother and I’m sure a hero of many others with His
tireless work with Amputees around the world ..devoting endless hours of His
time doing the magic of His Trade..
On one of Our fishing trips to Costa Rica I watched His “magic” one
evening with the mate of Our fishing Charter Boat ( named WHITE MAGIC..
Captain Danny Arnold) .The mate had lost his right hand and almost his leg
in a trajic car accident claiming his wife and child…Hugh tirelessly
measured and measured to make a mold to go home and send the prosthesis
later ;;;for gratis ,free, no charge ..
That was my Brother ..Hugh..
I cannot express my saddness over This great loss ;not only to myself, His
Family ;;wife Jo Ellen ,Hughie ,Joey and Jo Ellen’s sweet Mom…and all of
You within this E-mail ..God Bless You All and continued good health .
Brother, George Panton
P.S. If I’ve forgotten anyone please forward this e-mail to Them
