Former Maryland Governor Harry Hughes is dead at the age of 92.  

Governor Larry Hogan confirmed Hughes' passing in a statement released this afternoon:

“The First Lady and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Governor Harry Hughes, a longtime friend and Maryland legend whom I deeply admired. His dedication to our great state – as a distinguished member of the Maryland General Assembly and as our 57th governor – and his service to our nation as a member of the Navy Air Corps during World War II leave a legacy behind that will be forever remembered.

“Our most sincere prayers are with his two daughters, Ann and Elizabeth, his family, friends, and loved ones in this time of grieving. We will give him the celebration of life that he truly deserves.”



The Governor says that Maryland flags will fly at half-staff until sunset of the day of Hughes' burial.
