In Memoriam: Michael McHugh of Division #1 in Yonkers





In Memoriam: Michael McHugh of Division #1 in Yonkers








Mike McHugh, 59, “Big Mike” to all who knew him, passed away suddenly, at home. He went out laughing with his wife, Valerie, in his final moment.

Mike is survived by his wife, Valerie Lacey, with whom he joyfully shared the last eight years in Warwick, New York. He was beloved by his children, Michael Joseph McHugh and Caitlin McHugh, and stepsons, Paul Jannicelli, Andrew Jannicelli and Adam Jannicelli. He is survived by seven siblings, as well as his adoring nieces and nephews. Also surviving is Michael and Caitlin’s mother, Lisa McHugh.

Born and raised in Yonkers, New York, the son of Frank McHugh and Ann Morrison McHugh, Mike attended Iona Prep High School, going on to graduate from Manhattan College in 1980, with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. He immediately began his 38-year career with Moretrench American Corp., culminating with him in the role of Executive Vice President. Mike built a very successful career in which he forged countless friendships and associations, his expertise and work ethic earning him the respect of all those in the construction industry.

Recently retired, he began to strike off items from his bucket list with the gusto he was known for, including a three-week trip with Valerie to Ireland to visit the land of their ancestors. Renting a car and covering nearly that entire country, Mike dubbed the trip, “Driving Ms. Lacey.” He enjoyed fishing and golf; Pink Floyd; and Jack with a cigar. Humor and teasing were his expression of love. The more he loved, the more he busted chops.

There are no memories of Mike that don’t bring a smile to the faces of all who knew him. With a heart bigger than he was, and a spirit of generosity that knew no bounds, he left an imprint in this world and on everyone he touched, including the children he coached in Ardsley Little League, for which he was so very proud to be President, as well as the engineering students he never stopped mentoring. Mike steered more people into their careers than anyone will ever know, some of whom will never know themselves.

His legacy of dedication continued through the years in the many associations he served, including The Moles, where he first met Valerie, and where he never stopped giving of his time to the Education Committee; the American Society of Civil Engineers, where he was Past President and Director of the Lower Hudson Valley Branch; the General Contractors Association, where he served on the Labor Committee; the Civil Engineering Department of Manhattan College, where he served on the Advisory Boards for the Engineering Department and the Mentoring Program; St. Joseph’s Hospital, Yonkers, NY, where he served as a Board Member; the George Fox Conference, where he was a UC of SME member and lecturer; the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, where he was Past President; and the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division #1 of Yonkers.

Big Mike will be sorely missed, but he will live on in the treasured memories of those who were fortunate enough to know him. Let his tremendous generosity inspire your own life. That is his legacy.

Visiting hours will be held at the Flynn Memorial Home, Yonkers, on Monday, August 6th and Tuesday, August 7th from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 pm on both days.
