Rawleigh Dean Hughes

November 16, 1957 — December 20, 2023

Houston, TX


Rawleigh Dean Hughes of Houston, TX, formerly of Williamsport, IN, passed away at 11:06 p.m. on December 20, 2023 at Memorial Hermann, TX.


He was the son of Lowell Dean Hughes and Helen Lanean Renville Hughes. He is survived by his wife, Jackie Hughes, his son J.D. Hughes, his sister Rebecca Cappello (Jeff), his brother Bob Hughes, his sister Courtney Hughes Suiter (Jon), aunt Connie Renville Sorenson, brother-in-law Dennis Myers, sister-in-law Michelle Birnbaum, and stepmother, Shelby Hughes. He is also survived by 12 nieces and nephews and 10 great nieces and nephews. Dean is preceded in death by his father, mother, and sister Deb Myers.


Dean graduated from Seeger Memorial High School with honors where he excelled at tennis, baseball, and band. Dean’s love for Eagle Scouts was one of his fondest achievements. He attended Ball State University in 1977 and successfully made the Dean’s list during his college years. Dean moved to Houston in 1982 to begin his successful career in Brick Sales.


Dean was loved by all who knew him. His positivity and laughter were contagious. His passions in life were family and Houston professional sports teams. Let’s not forget his 1971 Pontiac GTO which won “Best in Show” and was his prized possession.


Dean will be missed dearly.


Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
