March Resident of the Month
Heritage Hill Senior Community is pleased to announce that James McHugh has been named as Resident of the Month for March 2018.
James F. McHugh, son of James & Clara McHugh, was born on December 17, 1927 in Summit Hill Pa. He was one of 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls. He attended parochial elementary school and graduated from St. Ann’s High School in Lansford Pa in 1945.
James joined the US Navy upon graduation and was assigned to the USS Shelton. He spent 2 years aboard the USS Shelton, serving in Post-War Japan and China. At the end of his enlistment he obtained the rank of Radar-Man 3rd Class and was honorably discharged in 1947.
After taking the US Civil Service test Jim was offered a position at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC as an electronic technician. Here he worked in the Electronic and Sonar division. After 12 years in the Naval Research Laboratory Jim transferred to Naval Air System Command where he worked on aviation electronics.
Several years later he left the Naval Air System Command and proceeded to take employment as manager of the Naval Electronic Division with American Electronic Laboratories in Lansdale Pa. For the next 13 years, Jim traveled extensively as a contract manager/negotiator to help facilitate sound and navigation aeronautic requirements in their research contracts. Much of his work was under the very tightest of security.
In 1989 Jim retired and returned to his hometown of Summit Hill. Upon his return he once again enjoyed joining his friends on the golf course. Although he is unable to play the game now he enjoys watching it on TV. He is a devote Catholic and without his Catholic education he feels he would not have been as successful in his lifetime.
