Rustburg - I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Hugh Pendleton. From my perspective, I knew Mr. Pendleton as a big sports fan.
In addition to having the sports complex at Rustburg named after him and being a member of the Virginia High School Hall of Fame, I would see Hugh and his wife Emily at lots of Hillcats baseball games and especially at Rustburg Red Devils games. Didn't matter the sport, if the Red Devils were playing, there was a good chance you'd see him in the stands or on the sideline. Pendleton loved Rustburg, he will be greatly missed.
