Hugh (known to his family as “Bud”) attended Incarnation Grade School and George Washington High School in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. He then won a scholarship for acting and attended NYU Film School. Bud enjoyed a successful career at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center where he worked in the Orthopedic Department and Registrar. He particularly enjoyed planning the Orthopedic Department’s Annual Christmas Party, often performing a magic show for the children in attendance, as well as, those in the Pediatrics Wing. In the early 80’s, Hugh decided to pursue his dream in film production. He founded JHD Productions LTD and remained CEO to the very end. His goal was to provide a high quality studio in Long Island at a reasonable cost. Along the way, he developed numerous friendships, living close to his long time, Washington Heights best friend and “brother”, Michael Butler. Hugh was always “glass half full”, determined and relentless in pursuit of his dream. Following a recent surgery, he couldn’t wait to get back to work in the studio. God had other plans.

He is survived by his sister Elaine Waller of Marine City, MI; brother Frank (Nancy) Daly of Syracuse, NY; numerous nieces and nephews; countless friends and colleagues.
