Most sorry to hear. Condolences to his family. Hugh (Boboy) was a true pioneer who took Tripoli to the US market a way not achieved by many, if any, other bands. His association with Liberace carried the sound of pan into venues that were not accessible to other bands of the era. His older brother Carl played with Dixie Stars in the 50's, and later the (first) Esso Steel band in Bermuda. May he have peace in the Big PanYard above.

Condolences, to Bobboy  Family and Friends.

I have fond memories of interacting with Hugh in Silver Stars panyard and on a Ash Wednesday with other pan stalwarts in Belmont sharing historical tidbits. May he Rest In Peace.

A true talent and a true gentleman. May he rest in peace.
