Obit: Former Madeira Beach mayor Hugh Lamont dies

MADEIRA BEACH – Former Madeira Beach mayor and civic leader Hugh C. Lamont died at home on Aug. 11, 2017. He was 81.

A native of Glasgow, Scotland, he served in Special Air Service Regiment of the Royal Air Force in Jordon, Iraq and Cyprus. He emigrated to Atlanta in 1958 where he owned and operated a textile dye works and carpet cleaning business.

He was a resident of Madeira Beach for 40 years and a civic activist for three decades. In the early 1980s, he worked with the Florida Legislature to establish a “Slow Down-Minimum Wake” zone at John’s Pass and a subsequent ordinance was passed at the city level to protect boaters and sea life.

In 1987, he urged city leaders to consider installation of parking meters in John’s Pass Village as he felt the Village was destined to become a tourist area in future years.

His concern for civic involvement by the residents led him and others to form the Madeira Beach Taxpayers Association in the mid-1980s. He served as mayor from 1988 to 1990. He also served on the Planning Commission and with the youth soccer program for many years.

Survivors include his partner and wife of 47 years, Deby Weinstein; his son, Hugh W. Lamont, and daughter Cynthia Lamont.

At his request, no service is planned. In lieu of flowers, a gift to SunCoast Hospice/Empath Health is appreciated.
