George J. “Pete” McHughrn Pete McHugh, most recently of Moorestown and a longtime resident of Delran passed away January 15, 2013.rn It has been noted that being male is a matter of birth while being a gentleman is a matter of choice, and Pete was nothing if not a gentleman. He seldom left the house looking anything less than dapper, and he never had a bad word about anyone. Thanks to his job as an Executive Account Manager with TWA he was able to take his family on trips around the world. But, he showed his true dedication by simply always being there for them. When blessed with grandchildren, any one of their sports games would not be complete without him in attendance. Devoutly religious, Pete would do anything for his church, St. Casimir’s in Riverside. He was a member of the Holy Name Society, a Lector for the 7AM Mass, a member of the bowling team, he worked bingo and the carnival and was an usher in his later years. But, truth be told, it was part of his social nature as well. It wasn’t uncommon to find him having a gathering with family at home, co-workers at TWA events or just some friends at the White Eagle. And, being a diehard Eagles and Phillies fan he was always up for catching a game.rn As a young man Pete met a secretary named Frances (nee Corrigan) who worked for the same company as he. It wasn’t long until their relationship developed into a 65 year marriage. Before her passing in 2009, their lives were blessed by their children: Peter (Louise) of VA, Shelly Licursi (Paul) of Cinnaminson and Claire McHugh (Chuck Sides) of Moorestown and again by their grandchildren: Amy Serlenga (Matt), Ella McHugh, Kevin Licursi, Ryan Licursi and Bridget Sides as well as by their great-grandchildren: Carly, Allie and Matthew Serlenga.rn Come celebrate Pete’s 91 wonderful years Friday from 6-8 PM and Saturday from 9-10 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside. Mass of Christian Burial to follow 10:30 AM Saturday at Resurrection Parish (St. Casimir Site), Riverside. Interment Lakeview Memorial Park, Cinnaminson.
