George Clegg Jr.

December 29, 1947 ~ June 20, 2018 (age 70)

Mr. George Clegg Jr. age 70 of 500 Dudley Street Apt. # 405 Sanford, North Carolina passed on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at his residence.

Mr. George Clegg, Jr. “Bug / Big George” was born on December 29, 1947 to the late George C. Clegg and Annie Elizabeth Hooker in Sanford, NC and departed this life on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at his residence, 500 Dudley Street, Sanford, NC.

As a young boy, he enjoyed going to Tempting Congregational Church.

“Bug”, as he was so often called, attended W.B. Wicker School. He farmed with his uncle “Bubble” but he had a love for cars. After school, he enjoyed working with cars so much that he became a mechanic. His first mechanic job was with Mr. Tom Baldwin, later he worked with Mr. Fred Johnson. “Bug” was an excellent mechanic; sometimes he would work on their trucks and drive them around town, without a driver’s license!

He loved his buddies at the High Rise. They were so good to him and always looked out for him. He never obtained his driver’s license, but you wouldn’t have known it by the way he got around town. KFC was his favorite place to eat and his favorite phrase was “Big Head.’

“Bug” was a loving brother and would do whatever he could to help anyone. His favorite time of the year was Christmas when the family would dine at his sister’s house and would fill his appetite to the rim.

In addition to his parents, “Bug” was preceded in death by his stepmother, Lydia Mae Clegg and a brother, George A. McNeill.

He leaves to cherish his memories: one brother, Jimmy Thompson; three sisters, Gloria Williams (JD) of Sanford, NC, Clara Tilley (Rodney) Hamden, CT and Jessie Petty of Lemon Springs, NC; one uncle, Ed Hooker, Jr. of Charlotte, NC; three aunts, Helen Jones of Sanford, NC, Virginia Taylor of NJ and Thelma Maxie of Jupiter, FL., and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

“Bug” will be greatly missed by all who knew him, but his memories will linger forever.
