COUNTY ATTORNEY HUGHES DIES

Ringgold County Attorney Arlen HUGHES, 61, died suddenly Monday evening, January 15, at his home at 405 West Madison Street, Mount Ayr, after apparently suffering a cardiac arrest. Probably because of its suddenness, news of the death of HUGHES was received with disbelief throughout Iowa and telephones at local places of businesses and at the Ringgold County Courthouse, particulary at the sheriff's office, were ringing almost nonstop with inquiries that would confirm what had happened.

NOTE: Arlen was born September 15, 1934, the son of Russell Santford and Lois Edna (ALLEN) HUGHES of Kellerton, Iowa. He granduated from Graceland College at Lamoni, then went to Drake Law School in Des Moines, graduating in 1959. He served in the National Guard during the Vietnam War era. He married Dorothy Lea WRIGHT of Russell, Iowa in August of 1960 and they were the parents of Russell Santford II, Mari Gay, and Susan Kay. He shared the family farm located southeast of Kellerton with his brother Jack. He served as Ringgold County attorney for 35 years and had a private law practice in Mount Ayr. He died January 15, 1996, and was interred at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton.
