meet our members

Hugh Lankford is a long-time member (1979) of the Lubbock Monterey AMBUCS. He was sponsored by Rick Sosebee and Jim Berrier.  Rick and Jim are life-long friends with Hugh. The reason Hugh decided to join Lubbock Monterey AMBUCS was to pay his civic rent. Hugh has been a president-elect, a president of Lubbock Monterey AMBUCS, and on many different committees. He was a Co-Sergeant-At-Arms for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

Hugh is now retired, (December 31, 2016), but prior to his retirement, he was in insurance for 35 years and focused on life insurance sales, and property and casualty insurance. He was the marketing representative for Trinity Insurance Company and CNA Personal Insurance, which later became Encompass Insurance Company, a subsidiary of All State. Later, he worked in an investing career for 10 years with Edward Jones & LPL Financial. Hugh states his goal is to help people who are less fortunate than him.

As an interesting fact about Hugh, he was reared in an 800 square foot house with both parents and 4 sisters. His favorite pastime includes working puzzles, Samarai, Sudoku, and crosswords in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times Sunday Editions, playing card games and dominoes. Hugh and his wife, Bobbie, were married February 14, 2014.  Hugh has two children and four bonus children. Both Bobbie and he have 17 grandchildren.
