Randy Hughes
Original name: Ramsey D. Hughes
Birth: Sep. 11, 1928
Death: Mar. 5, 1963
Camden
Benton County
Tennessee, USA

Patsy Cline had participated in a benefit concert in Kansas City for the family of a disc jockey ("Cactus" Jack Call) who had died in a car accident. Ramsey (Randy) Hughes, Patsy Cline, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and Cowboy Copas, were all in Hughes Piper Comanche, when it crashed just west of Camden, Tennessee in a hollow along a ridge line in a heavily wooded area known as Fatty Bottom, near a fire tower off Mule Barn Rd. in Sandy Point, about 5 miles west of the Tennessee River. The plane had left Kansas City about 1:30pm. The reported time of the crash varies sometime between 6:20pm and 7:00pm, March 5, 1963. Patsy's watch was reportedly stopped at 6:20pm. Ironically, Jack Anglin was killed in an auto accident on the way to Patsy Cline's funeral. Jack Anglin, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and Cowboy Copas, are also buried in this same cemetery. (bio by: Bill Walker)
