Gary Baugh, 67, of Hughes Springs passed away September 20, 2021. Mr. Baugh was born November 20, 1953 in Naples, Texas to BT and Jewel Baugh. Gary was a member of Cross Roads Missionary Baptist Church of Hughes Springs where he served as treasurer and moderator for over 40 years. He taught Sunday School to all ages and served in all capacities there. He was a Master Jeweler and owner of The Golden Touch II before retiring in 2012 so that he and Norma could spend more time traveling. The two of them visited all 50 states and many foreign countries. As an avid fisherman he also enjoyed bow hunting and camping. His favorite place to spend his downtime was at Kelly Creek on Lake Wright Patman. Gary loved his children, grandkids, and his great-grandchildren more than life itself. They all affectionately called him "Pa" and he was blessed to have them all live nearby. He was a quiet person who always listened first before speaking. When he did speak people listened.
