He was born in Brooklyn, NY on March 6, 1940, the eldest son to the late Anthony and Marie McHugh. He later moved to Aberdeen, NJ where he and Anne raised their four daughters.

He will be remembered by many as the nice man with the beautiful gardens. Along with his other interests he enjoyed his family, especially his 10 grandchildren, Bryce, Jennifer, Gavin, Connor, Spenser, Deaglan, Kate, Olivia, Craig and Tommy. For years, his backyard has been known as Camp-Run-A-Muk by his many nieces and nephews.
