Obituary of Peter McGuigan
It is with great sadness that the family of Peter R. McGuigan announces his passing which occurred on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, at Kennebec Manor Nursing Home. Born in Dundee, Scotland, on January 17, 1930. He was a son of the late Michael and Julia McGuigan.
As many of you who were fortunate enough to have met Peter, you know he had two passions and love, his wife Alison, and boxing. Since arriving in Canada in 1995, he became a coach and mentor at Saint John Golden Gloves Boxing, he was involved in every aspect of boxing. Since a child having traveled all over Great Britain attending boxing events. His greatest memory was getting to meet, picture, and autograph of the late Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), he met a lot of the greats throughout his travels.
He leaves to mourn besides his wife; grandchildren, Brian, and Lisa (Michel) of Saint John and Michael and Alison (Gareth) of England, and ten great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Peter was predeceased by his two sons, Michael of England, Brian of Saint John, and great-granddaughter Rebecca.
