John Clegg Death, Obituary – In loving memory of our dear brother John Matthew Clegg, we are publishing this memorial today in his honor. John suffered an illness that came on very suddenly and went away on December 13th. His cherished other four sisters are inconsolable by his passing; yet, we find solace in the fact that John is finally reunited with our cherished mother Barbara.
When John was a child, his uncles Terry Blomgren and Richard Hayes served as important examples to look up to. Additionally, he respected and cherished his grandpa Carl Blomgren, whom he resembled physically and looked up to.
On the 13th of November 2022, John celebrated his 58th birthday. The struggles that John endured throughout his life continued right up until the very end. However, if you met him, you would never guess that fact! He never failed to give everyone a warm welcome by flashing his dazzling blue eyes and dazzling smile. There were no strangers in John’s eyes; there were just people he hadn’t met yet. He was a guy of tremendous effort who placed his devotion to God and his family above all else. The phrase “heart of gold” does not even begin to do justice to the compassion that John had for other people; in fact, he would and did frequently give away his last assets to those he thought were less fortunate.
John was a tall, lanky Southern gentleman who possessed the warm and compassionate heart and carefree attitude of a young man despite his advanced years. John spent a significant portion of his life searching for himself and making poor choices when he was younger. He devoted the rest of his life to leading a sober lifestyle and trying to atone for the decisions he had made in the past. Even though he didn’t have much himself, he made it a point to donate to others less fortunate than himself each and every day. John’s relationship with each of his four sisters was one of a kind and very significant to John. He was our dearest, most adorable great-great-big brother, and we will miss him terribly each and every day.
There will be no funeral or memorial service held for the deceased. This blog post will be the only written obituary that is published in memory of this remarkable man. As John’s surviving relatives, we felt it was important to pay him the tribute of love and respect that he deserved. He was a decent human being. An honorable man who was firmly committed to being kind and aiding those in need; we were grateful that we could call him our brother. Keep them close, then bring them even closer to you. No matter whether you are related by blood or by love, or both, family is everything. Please make it a point to tell them how much you love them whenever you get the chance. You can never demonstrate or express it sufficiently enough.
