Peter McHugh’s Death

We are sorry to hear of the death of Peter F. McHugh of Limington, Maine. Peter founded the Cedar Brook Burial Ground, one of only two green cemeteries in Maine. He was a strong supporter of the Green Burial movement, Do-It-Yourself burials, and of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maine. Peter spoke at our annual meeting on more than one occasion.

Peter set aside two acres of his 150-acre tree farm as a green burial cemetery, to preserve the natural beauty of the land in perpetuity. He was buried there on March 12th, next to the large stone marking the old Joshua Small family cemetery.
