The short side of the story, after him was my Grandfather Charlie and my daddy. They were pretty much in the livestock trucking business for all their lives.

Listen as Charlie's Hughey's grandson, Kenneth Hughey, describes the Hughey Family business in this excerpt from an oral history interview with Mr. Hughey at the Orlando Public Library on July 13, 2016. Hughey Avenue in Orlando is named after this pioneer family.
