    Born at the family farmhouse in Richfield Springs on Aug. 28, 1924, he was a son of the late Joseph and Victoria Sagac Hugick. A lifelong Richfield Springs resident, his grade school education was in a one room schoolhouse in Richfield Springs, and he graduated from Richfield Springs High School. In 1967, he was united in marriage to the former Rosemarie Breuer in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, West Winfield.

Michael had a strong belief in God and was a communicant of St. Joseph’s the Worker Catholic Church in West Winfield. He will be remembered as a hard working, gentle man, who had a strong love for the outdoors and nature. He will be greatly missed by his friends and especially his family.
    Surviving are his devoted wife of forty-five years, Rosemarie; his son, David Hugick, of Richfield Springs; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Peter and John Hugick, and five sisters, Mary Kiersztyn, Clara Lesniak, Helen Peplinski, Amelia Kozak and Lottie Kozak.
