Hubert A. Verrier

EUSTIS – Hugh Verrier, renowned artist and inveterate entrepreneur, took flight early on May 31, 2023. soaring with the birds he loved. His sculpted watercolor birds are life-sized and unframed so you experience them as a bird in flight.

Hugh was a self-made man with an intense love of life, a good laugh and good bottle of scotch. He followed his dreams, pursuing them with vitality, and achieving great success. From commercial fishing to laundromat ownership to building the Birds in Flight art gallery, his creativity is evident all around Maine. And a few of his pleasures: avid skier, sport fisherman, world traveler, home improvement wizard, and prolific reader.

He is survived by his longterm partner, Jean Gutmann, daughters, Susanna Guerra and Victoria Dorsey, and their loving families.

At Hugh’s request arrangements will be private.
