PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Dave

2019-May-11

Good Evening All,

Mike McEneney asks for our prayers for Dave Rice, Son-in-Law of Mike’s Friend and Class Mate, Tom Kelleher ’53. Dave has been in our prayers as we pray for him and his Family during his battle with Cancer. Dave’s Wife, Jane (Tom’s Daughter) has shared the following inspiring and loving update. Please raise the volume for this Good Man and his Family as they share this difficult part of their journey. We pray for complete recovery. We pray for the success of the current round of treatments and that the Doctors get the disease under control
and in remission. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

Jane Rice‎ to Dave’s Brave Fight

With Dave’s most recent scans it seems that his cancer is progressing…. It not only shows the tumors enlarging but also a new development in his left kidney. Hopefully that will be addressed by putting a stent in to help it drain. The cause has yet to be determined. We should know more once that procedure is done. Unfortunately, this means that he will need to begin chemo once again. Ugh, he’s been through so much already. He has been getting away with just a Herceptin infusion every three weeks to keep it at bay. It has taken us about a week to wrap our heads around this to post it. He looks so good and on the most part is feeling well. On a good note, we have been very diligent about spending quality family time and having fun. (Have I told you how wonderful our girls and their significant others are?) We most recently took a family cruise to the Caribbean. Lots of blue water, sunshine, fresh air and great company. We even got to parasail! We always manage to have lots of fun playing as a family!

Obituary: John C. Clegg
By John Corrigan

John C. Clegg, father of Clegg Promo (asi/45450) founder and CEO Tim Clegg and company president Kevin Clegg, passed away on May 4.

Clegg was class president and valedictorian in high school, a mathematics major at Manhattan College, a computer programmer at Sperry Gyroscope, manager of information systems at ATO/SMG and then chief information officer at Standard Products.

In 1994, Clegg threw himself into a new role as gadfly, ombudsman and outside factory rep for Clegg Industries. He relished traveling through Ohio and the Midwest, visiting distributors in offices, parking lots, homes and barns. Not only did he become a master at presenting the Clegg line, he also became well known on the trade show circuit. In addition to presenting, he was a tireless proofreader and editor for numerous Clegg and Americhip catalogs.

Community service was the work Clegg most enjoyed and for which he will be lovingly remembered. He was a coach, referee and commissioner of the basketball program for the Chagrin Athletic Association, a board member on the Chagrin Valley Rec Center, a lector at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church and a fixture at all Chagrin Falls High School sporting events for over 50 years.

“Our Dad loved Clegg and Americhip and he gave his all to make us a better organization,” said Tim and Kevin. “We were so blessed to have him as our father and equally as fortunate to have him as part of the Clegg and Americhip team. We’ll continue to work hard, do well, improve, treat people well and make a difference in what we do and in how we do it. We know that would make our Dad very proud of us.”

Clegg was a beloved husband to Eileen Dearie Clegg for 59 years. He was the father of seven children and 21 grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a “Membership Scholarship in the Name of John C. Clegg” at the Chagrin Valley Rec. Center, PO Box 84, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022.

POSITRACTION: Homeless Man Gets Housing and Work Thanks to Teen Girl

Homeless Man Gets Housing and Work Thanks to Teen Girl Who Saw His Plea for a Job at a Bus Stop
By McKinley Corbley – Mar 27, 2019

*** begin quote ***

A homeless man has been given a job and a roof over his head thanks to a teenager who saw his impassioned plea.

In a bid to find himself a job, 37-year-old Anthony Johnson posted a “Work Wanted” sign at a Hastings bus stop in Sussex, England.

The sign read: “I will do a trial for free to show how I work. I don’t take drugs or drink. I will also do dog walking/minding, window cleaning, shopping, gardening, car valeting/washing, housework, cooking.”

“Anything to earn a living and make life seem worth living,” he added.

Luckily, the note was spotted by 16-year-old Charlotte Howard. After she snapped some photos of Johnson’s sign and tent, she posted them to social media and started a GoFundMe page in hopes of drumming up enough cash to buy him a used caravan.

*** and ***.

“I wouldn’t have got anywhere looking for a job if it wasn’t for her,” he added. “She really is incredible.”

*** end quote ***

Amazing how a motivated teenager can solve a individual’s problem.

How many “opportunities” to do the same have I missed in my life?

Charity is best done by individual effort and look what one youngster can do.

Imagine what a society can do.
