Leo’s Obituary
U.S. Veteran

Leo Edward Barron, 86, of Gales Ferry, Connecticut, a devoted husband and father who was known for his strong Catholic faith, love of country and sharp sense of humor, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019, surrounded by his loving, grateful children.

He leaves behind five children, 19 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

Born the fourth of five children to William and Angela Barron in New York, N.Y., on Dec. 7, 1932, Leo attended the Good Shepherd School and Cardinal Hayes High School, before earning a bachelor’s degree in business from Manhattan College in 1958.

In 1958, he met the love of his life, the former Lorraine McColl, in New York City’s Inwood Lounge. The two were married in 1960 and shared “54 years and one week’’ together, before she passed away on April 30, 2014.

He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, from August 1952 to July 1954, and had a distinguished, 25-year career in the U.S. Navy Reserve, retiring as a Commander.

Leo joined the Naval Investigative Service (NIS) in 1960, beginning a successful career as a special agent. His career would take his family to Port Orchard, Washington; Mundelein, Illinois, and Marlton, New Jersey, during his 25-year career. They also lived in the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and Guam, before they settled in Gales Ferry in 1981.

Retiring from NIS in 1985, he embarked on a successful 15-year career as a private investigator. In 2002, in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Leo returned to work with NIS, traveling to London, England; Rota, Spain and Naples, Italy.

A very active parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Gales Ferry since 1981, he served as a lector, Eucharistic minister and volunteered for Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

In 2018, Leo established the Leo E. and Lorraine A. Barron Endowment within the Catholic Foundation in order to support the parish and its outreach.

“I have been so blessed to have been married to my best friend for over 50 years,’’ he said at the time. “Our marriage resulted in five great adults to give the world, who, in turn, married and are raising more soldiers for Christ.’’

Leo was a past Grand Knight and longtime active member of the Knights of Columbus and the Ledyard Lions Club. He also enjoyed serving on the Blue Mass Committee for the Diocese of Norwich, Connecticut.

An incurable sports fanatic, he could always be counted on for the latest news, trades and scores of his beloved New York Yankees and the New York Football Giants. A die-hard Yankees fan, Leo was known to verbally joust with anyone who didn’t share such allegiance. “You look too smart to be a Red Sox fan,” he’d say, lightheartedly, to many of his New England friends.

A season ticket holder for 50 years, he’d cheer on his New York Giants in any kind of weather, with Lorraine and other family and friends by his side at Giants Stadium.

He also loved to travel and visit his children and grandchildren, thinking nothing of hours-long drives or flights to support them at their school and sporting events.

During his retirement, he and Lorraine visited Ireland, and took cruises to Alaska and Nova Scotia. They also made dozens of trips to Lorraine’s favorite place, Walt Disney World.

In recent months, as his health waned and surged, Leo made no secret of the fact that he looked forward to eternal life. “I’m rounding third,’’ he’d say with gratitude for the joyfully full life he’d been blessed with. A man of deep faith, he’d note that he was not afraid to slide into home, head first.

Surviving are his two daughters, Jeanne Knudsen (Paul) of Ridge, New York, and Kerri Ann Charette (Brian) of Gales Ferry; three sons, William (Michelle) of Long Valley, New Jersey, Daniel (Ann Marie) of Long Valley, New Jersey, and Matthew (Jodi) of Memphis, Tennessee.

He is also survived by 19 grandchildren: Thomas (Lindsay), James (Elizabeth), John and Mark Knudsen; Kevin (Allison), Peter, Conor, Patrick, Kelly, Amy, Leo, Brett, Luke and Shane Barron, and Andrew, Matthew, Christopher, Summer and Joy Charette. Additionally, he is survived by one great-granddaughter, Sydney Knudsen.

A visitation will be held on Tuesday August 6th from 5-7 pm at the Byles Groton Memorial Home, 310 Thames Street Groton, Connecticut. A Mass of Christian burial will be held 10 am Wednesday August 7th at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Gales Ferry, Connecticut. Interment will follow with military honors at Gales Ferry Cemetery.

The family suggests donations be directed to the Leo E. and Lorraine A. Barron Endowment Fund at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Route 12, Gales Ferry, CT 06335 or St. Jude Children’s Hospital 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

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.
