Born in Blacks Harbour NB on August 13, 1959, he was a son of the late Arthur and Beatrice (MacVicar) McVicar. A loving father, grandfather, brother and friend, Hughie is survived by his children: Andrew McVicar of Saint John NB, Zack McVicar (Sally Mcadam) of Pleasant Ridge NB, Aileen McVicar (Kyle Shannon) of Tower Hill NB and Vanessa Tinker (Chris Sprague) and her children of Eastport ME; grandchildren: Maddy, Lilly and David; siblings: Patti McVicar of L'Etang NB, Geri Johnston of Utopia NB, Debbie (Peter) Cormier of Blacks Harbour NB, Mary McVicar of L'Etang NB, Jacqueline (Russell) McVicar-Ferguson of St. George NB and Bessie McVicar of L'Etang NB; chosen brother: Chris (Vicki) Lord of Rollingdam NB; and many nieces, nephew and cousins.

Hughie was a simple man who lived to love and support his family. He spent many hours on the road as a trucker and loved to have his children in the cab beside him when they were able. Hughie had a great sense of humor and had a way of telling you how it is. A friend to all he met, Hughie will be sadly missed by all.
Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. A graveside service will be held at the Rollingdam Cemetery on August 6, 2022 at 11:00 am. In his memory, donations to the NB Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
