Hyde County experienced the death of two very well known people this past week in the deaths of Edith Sadler Pugh and Jack Mason, Jr. Both represent personalities that made long lasting contributions in this county and will long be remembered.  Jack Mason, Jr. will be remembered on Thursday in a memorial service scheduled for 2 pm at Calvary Presbyterian Church. Jack was a Swan Quarter native who dearly loved Hyde County. He was connected in many ways to many people. He is remembered as a family man who is survived by his wife, Ann, and two children Tracy and Todd, his grandchildren, and his brother Phil. Jack was the manager of the Hyde County Water System and was well known for his expertise in building a system that was superior in quality and he was recognized around the area for his leadership in the area of utilities. When he was not serving Hyde County and her people by "keeping the water running," he was probably crabbing which was a special hobby of his. Jack experienced health problems that required special care and he was able to be more secure living nearer his medical doctors and the hospital so they moved to Winterville a few years ago. He often returned to Hyde for visits and day trips to keep in touch with family and friends.  The church today remembers both these families and lifts them up to the special strength and care that only God can give in times of sadness and loss.  (Soule Church Newsletter - June 3, 2013)
