Robert Samuel Hughes II, along with his sisters (left to right) Sally Hughes Trentman, Jane Hughes Kirkpatrick and Mary Hughes Hudson, accepted the honor after a heart-felt introduction by long-time friend Burns Hargis. Holding the Western Heritage Award’s Wrangler is Miss Rodeo Oklahoma 2015 Sierra Pecha. Robert Hughes said, “Dad was a great father; a great man; and he lived a great life.”
