We are sorry to share that longtime resident since 1960, Jack Foley, has passed away. Jack grew up spending his summers at Candlewood Knolls. He was often found water skiing, playing baseball and frequenting the Candlewood Knolls dances. Like so many of us, Candlewood Knolls was his favorite place to be and his dream of being able to share it with his children also became a reality. Jack will be missed by so many lifelong friends he made in the Knolls Community he loved.

David Joseph McHugh
August 05, 1961 - February 13, 2020

David   Joseph   McHugh,   58,   passed   from   this   life   on   February   13th,   2020. He was a   devoted   husband,   father,   son,   brother,   uncle,   cousin   and   friend   to   so   many   people,   he   will   be missed   by all   who   knew   him.   He   is   survived   by   his   loving   family,   including   his   wife,   Jaculin (Haggerty)   McHugh,   his   three   children—Merrill,   Elli   and   Finn—his   parents,   David   M.   and Elena   Fiorello   McHugh   of   Fairfield,   and   his   brother,   Mark   McHugh   of   Boston.  

David   could always   be   counted   on   for   a   call,   text,   conversation,   piece   of   advice,   or   a   joke   to   lighten   the   mood.  He   will   be   remembered   for   his   incredible   sense   of   humor,   which   brought   such   joy   and   relief   to those   around   him,   as   well   as   his   constant   loyalty   and   support   for   all   those   he   loved.

An   avid   outdoors man,   he   competed   in   countless   events   throughout   the   United   States   and   Europe.  He   was   an   accomplished   AA   clay   shooter   who   also   participated   in   the   ESPN   Great   Outdoor Games   in   2001   and   2002.   David   was   a   member   of   the   Weston   Gun   Club   for   28   years,   including serving   as   president   in   1997.   He   loved   fishing,   from   Cape   Cod   to   the   Florida   Keys   and   Lake Candlewood.   His   passion   for   shooting   and   fishing—inherited   in   part   from   his   grandparents—was something   he   shared   with   his   children,   as   well   as   the   countless   friends,   family   members,   and students   with   whom   he   shared   his   gifts.

David   was   a   1979   graduate   from   Fairfield   Prep   in   Fairfield,   CT.   He   was   among   the   very   small group   credited   with   starting   Fairfield   Prep’s   lacrosse   program.   The   program—which   began   with grassroots   fundraising   and   iron-on   jersey   numbers—has   grown   into   a   multiple   state championship-winning   team.   At   Ohio   Wesleyan   University,   he   played   attack   and   was   a   high scorer.   He   was   also   a   member   of   Phi   Kappa   Psi   fraternity,   serving   as   the   chapter   president.

His   love   of   cars   took   him   across   the   country   and   around   the   world.   He   founded   Pequot   Motor  Sports,   which   started   out   in   his   parents   garage   and   would   later   fuel   a   lifetime   passion   for  car-racing—including   Formula   Fords—and   pretty   much   anything   that   went   fast.   From   there,   he  would   share   his   passion   for   cars   and   racing   with   his   colleagues   at   Volvo   Cars   of   North   America,   Skip   Barber   Racing   School,   and   Mercedes   Benz   USA,   taking   him   across   the   U.S. and Europe.

All   are   welcome   to   celebrate   his   life   at   Penfield   Pavilion,   323   Fairfield   Beach   Rd,   Fairfield   CT  06824,   on   Saturday  February   22,   from   2-5   p.m.   Remembrances   to begin at 2:15  p.m.   His family would   greatly   appreciate   any   photos,   stories,   or   memories,   to   be   sent

Please visit to leave an online condolence for the family. The Hoyt-Cognetta / Raymond Funeral Home in Historic Norwalk Has Been entrusted with arrangements.
