The funeral was attended by colleagues such as Vince Vaughn.
Hughes, hallowed as the scribe behind the 80s teen movie wave -- "Breakfast Club", "Pretty in Pink", and the aforementioned "Bueller" most prominent among them -- lived and worked in the North Shore. He died last Thursday of a heart attack in Manhattan. He was 59.
The service at Wenban Funeral Home was invitation only. Security personnel checked off names at the door.
