Obituary: Hugh Saussy Jr.

Hugh Saussy Jr., at 90
Hugh Saussy Jr., a former Hull resident, died April 8 at the age of 90. 
Mr. Saussy had lived in Dania Beach, Fla., for the past 10 years. He was a former Episcopal priest at Holy Innocents’ Church in Atlanta, Ga., where he founded the Holy Innocents’ School. He was active in the civil rights movement and the Head Start program at the federal Office of Economic Opportunity. He joined the Federal Energy Administration in 1973 during the oil embargo and continued his public service career as Northeast regional director of the Department of Energy until his retirement in 2005. 
During his career, he was instrumental in developing and implementing many clean-energy initiatives, including the installation of one of the first wind turbines in Massachusetts in the town of Hull, his home for 34 years. He loved living in Hull and cherished the friendships he made here. He enjoyed taking the commuter boat and joining other commuters at Jo’s Nautical Bar. He will be remembered as a kind and loving man who was a great listener and an advocate for those in need. 
Mr. Saussy is survived by his former wife and dear friend, Maureen Saussy-Kennedy, and his children, Stephen Saussy and his wife, Pam; Lynn Saussy; Carol Saussy; and Lucy Saussy-Hannon and her husband, Tim. He also leaves his grandchildren, Steve Saussy, Jared Saussy, Madeline Edwards, and Luke Hannon; his great-granddaughter, Clara Saussy; and his brother, Charles R. Saussy and his children.  A loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, he will be greatly missed.
