McFARLAND [East Bay Newspapers, On-line Obituaries, July 2006, Providence RI Journal, Saturday 8 July 2006] John Vincent McFarland, 89, of Barrington, died Thursday, July 6, 2006. He was the devoted husband of Alice M. McFarland. Prior to his 40-year residency in Barrington, he lived in Winchester and then Andover, Mass. Born on August 16, 1916 in Medford, Mass., he attended Medford schools and received his undergraduate degree from Boston University. He entered the armed forces from Medford, completed Officer Candidate School and during World War II, served as a navigator stationed in Europe flying missions in a B-24 Liberator to targets within Germany. At the conclusion of World War II he flew the B-24 thousands of miles from Europe back to this home air base in Lubbock, Texas, where upon landing the ground crew pasted the aircraft with the warnings “Unsafe to Fly,” not a surprising revelation to him. Having put all his equipment “back where it belonged” he retired from the United States Air Force as a Lt. Colonel. Immediately prior to his retirement from business in 1982 he had been a financial executive with the Ann & Hope retail companies. Earlier in his career he had worked with the Jays, United Farmers, Gilchrist’s and Pollard’s, all in Massachusetts. He was a parishioner of St. Luke’s Church and a former member of the Barrington Yacht Club. Mr. McFarland found his greatest enjoyment, before and after retirement on Narragansett Bay. Whether it was a motorized chase to fish a school of blues on a feeding frenzy in the upper bay or the final turn north at Beavertail followed by an early evening sail before wind returning to his Barrington mooring, he found that these settings joined by his family and friends sustained a zest for life in his soul. In addition to his wife of 63 years, he leaves his son and daughter-in-law, Frank and Ronnie McFarland of Bristol; a daughter, Marie McFarland of East Providence; a grandson John L. McFarland of Riverview, Fla.; and many nieces and nephews. The funeral will be held on Monday at 10:15 from the Smith-Mason Funeral Home 398 Willett Ave., Riverside with a Mass of Christian burial in St. Luke’s Church Washington Road at 11:30. Burial with military honors will be in Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Providence.

He was born in Attleboro on April 11, 1987, the loving son of David H. and Ann H. (Keating) McGinnes. He was a lifelong resident of the City of Attleboro and was an active sophomore at Attleboro High School in May of 2003 when he was beset with illness. In the third grade, Chris was introduced to the theatre and the world of drama through his role as a munchkin in the Attleboro High School's production of the Wizard of Oz. From that moment on, Chris's love for the arts grew with each new project. He performed in numerous high school musicals and drama productions, often playing the lead role. His love for entertaining also had him demonstrating his talent on stage at TriBoro Youth Theatre productions. Chris was an honor student who was comfortable with all types of people and would not hesitate to pick up the microphone and speak to a crowd of only a few or a few hundred. His dynamic personality did not go unnoticed. He served his fellow classmates as the president of his freshmen class, and was a member of the Attleboro High School Student Council.

As an avid runner, he was a member of the Attleboro High School cross country team. He was a communicant of St. Stephen's Church in the Dodgeville section of Attleboro, and it was there that Chris received his first communion from Fr. Richard Roy, then pastor of St. Stephen's Church.  Chris was an inspiration to all who were his family, friends or even a newly-made acquaintance long before his illness, and he certainly demonstrated a strong will and positive attitude. Although his years may have been few in numbers, he left a lasting impression on the world. An athlete, Chris enjoyed downhill skiing and running and was a fan of the New England Patriots. He loved the ocean and treasured the annual family vacations to Aruba. Listening to music and playing the guitar were among his favorite pastimes. His sense of humor and his love for laughter will be forever remembered. Chris let everyone know about how proud he was of his Irish heritage.  Through the years of illness, he relentlessly demonstrated his love for his family. His family was his rock and support, and he had an absolute admiration and love for each of them, and in particular, his beloved sister, Liz. In addition to his devoted Mom and Dad, he leaves his loving sister, Elizabeth "Liz" McGinnes of Attleboro; his maternal grandmother, Regina (Spencer) Keating of Attleboro Falls; his paternal grandfather, John E. McGinnes of Cumberland, R.I.; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and caregivers. Chris's dear brother, Bryan Patrick McGinnes, died in 1993 at the age of 13.

He was the husband of the late Mary (Pickering) McHugh for over 59 years, until her death on December 9, 2000, and his first wife Elaine (Armstrong) McHugh who he lost in the hurricane of 1938. Born in Johnston, RI, on June 19, 1908, he was the son of the late Francis Joseph and Annie (Wood) McHugh. An island resident since 1934, he was an avid walker and a familiar figure strolling the Broadway-Washington Square area. A 1974 retiree of the Naval War College, Mr. McHugh was known nationally and internationally for his lectures and writings on war gaming. From 1974 to his retirement in 1983, he was a Senior Systems Analyst at Pacer Systems, Inc. Mr. McHugh was drafted in early 1943 and served in the 1258th Combat Engineers, a unit of Patton´s Third Army. He was awarded three battle stars. When Mr. McHugh started at the Naval War College in early 1934, war games had been a feature of that institution since its earliest day. Under the direction and supervision of naval officers and war gaming experts, he performed plotting and recording duties and prepared graphs and nomograms for strategic, tactical and logistic games. With the advent of the analog Naval Electronic Warfare Simulator (NEWS) in late 1957, Mr. McHugh was promoted to Operations Research Analyst. He became involved in data collection and analysis, as well as game model design. He also participated in student and Fleet games as both umpire and player. During this period he gave lectures on the history of war gaming and simulation and other related topics to staff and students of the Naval War College and to Fleet, reserve and foreign officers. He also participated in the requirements, development and the phased utilization of a digital war gaming system (WARS). Mr. McHugh retired from the Naval War College on June 30, 1974. He then joined Pacer Systems as a Senior Systems Analyst. In this capacity, he provided on-site guidance and support for the WARS until 1983. Mr. McHugh´s Naval War College publications include "Graphic Methods of Presenting Statistical Data," 1950, "Visual Aids at the Naval War College," 1952, 1956, and "Graphic Presentation",1956. "Gaming at the Naval War College," an article in the March, 1963, issue of US Naval Institute Proceedings, provides a brief overview of gaming at that institution. His best known book, Fundamentals of War Gaming, ran three editions, 1960, 1961 and 1966. This seminal work includes all aspects of war gaming and simulation up to the time of publication, from the one-on-one to military-political games. Topics include the history of war gaming, rules and procedures, war game models, data, strategic chart simulations, tactical board games and the pre-Word War II US- Japanese games. Issued to all Naval War College Staff and students as well as Fleet and Reserve gaming participants, it received wide distribution. The third edition of Fundamentals of War Gaming was chosen by the Advanced Research Project Agency for its 1972 "Reviews of Selected Books and Articles on Gaming and Simulation" (R-732-ARPA, June 1972) it was examined in great detail and received a very favorable review. On the occasion of Mr. McHugh's final retirement, his colleagues presented him with a plaque inscribed "Master War Gamer of Them All", a fitting tribute to one who devoted half a century to the art and science of war gaming. He is survived by two daughters Patricia F. Mullette of Caldwell, NJ, and Sharon E.
