FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has ordered state and U.S. flags to half-staff from sunrise ’til sunset Tuesday in honor of the late U.S. Army Spc. Huguens Pierre, 21, who will be buried at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne.
His wake is today, Presidents’ Day from 2 to 6 p.m.
His funeral is Tuesday at St. Stephen’s Church in Framingham at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 22.
SPC Huguens Pierre, immigrated to the US from Haiti with his family at the young age of six.
The family settled into life in Framingham and became a part of its fabric relatively quickly.
He attended Charlotte Dunning Elementary, Fuller Middle School, and then onto Framingham High School.
There was no question about it, Huguens was a good athlete he excelled in both football and wrestling, and was named as a top 5 wrestler more than once. In the middle of his senior year at Framingham a move to Sharon was inevitable, and he wrestled to another top 5 and graduated from Sharon High School in 2019.
He was a calm and “chill” presence in any situation, and known as fiercely loyal to family and friends. Two traits that not only served him well, but his country as an SPC in the US Army based in Fort Campbell, KY.
Sadly, Huguens died unexpectedly on Saturday morning February 5, 2022 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident at the age of 21.
