On Monday, June 5, 2017 Tanner Hughes, age 16, passed away in Swift Current, SK. Tanner James Hughes was born February 6, 2001 to Jay & Alison Hughes in Swift Current. Anything Tanner put his mind to, he did with all he had. From an early age he loved to play games and learned to play chess at age six. He could run like the wind and excelled in school.
