Columnist and Attorney Hugh Holub Dies

Posted By on Mon, Sep 19, 2011 at 11:59 AM

Our condolences to Tucson Weekly contributor Annie Holub who lost her father Hugh Holub early this morning. Holub, an attorney, was a regular contributor to the Weekly's sister newspaper, Inside Tucson Business:

Hugh Holub, 65, who wrote an opinion column Another Point of View and was a regular blogger for Inside Tucson Business, died suddenly at 12:30 a.m. this morning (Monday, Sept. 19) at St. Mary's Hospital.

He had been diagnosed with pneumonia about three weeks ago, which was brought under control with antibiotics but then he had a flare-up last week and was airlifted from his Tubac home to the hospital over the weekend, according to his daughter, Annie Holub.

An attorney, Holub was an expert on water issues. During his life he interned with U.S. Rep. Morris K. Udall, worked for the City of Tucson Attorney's office and the Pima County Attorney's Office under Dennis DeConcini. In addition to running his own law firm, he was an attorney for the City of Nogales.

Besides his legal career, Holub's writing included being a reporter for the Tucson Citizen newspaper and he was the editor and publisher of an online satirical publication, called The Frumious Bandersnatch.

Details about services are being developed.
