Clegg, Max R. (11/07/2012)
Max R. Clegg, age 82, of Winona, died Sunday, November 4, 2012, at Saint Anne Extended Healthcare, Winona.

Max Richard was born August 28, 1930, in Mankato, Kansas. He was the 11th of 13 children born to Chester T. and Viola I. Clegg.

Max spent his childhood in Mankato, and while still attending high school, he enlisted in the United States Army. He served his country for three years and was honorably discharged in 1952. He was a veteran of the Korean War.

While Max was still stationed at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, and on leave in Winona, he met Kathryn Ann Singer of Minnesota City, Minn. They were married on August 30, 1952 in Minneiska, Minnesota. From this union there were six children. Max and Kathryn were later divorced.

Max’s work history included carpentry, being employed at the original Bub’s Brewery in the late 1950s, driving cab for Winona Cab Co., and working for the Winona Street Dept., under Art Brom.

Before and after his retirement, Max enjoyed creating woodworking projects such as airplanes and birdhouses, watching the Cubs games on TV, and reading books, especially about the Old West. His favorite place to get these books was Paperbacks and Pieces on Mankato Avenue. He also enjoyed frequenting the restaurants in Winona, and became a familiar face to the friendly waitresses who chatted with him.

Those left to keep him in memory are his children: Deborah (Wayne Bohnhoff) Clegg, Dayton, Minnesota; Frosty (Jeanne) Clegg, Winona, Minnesota; Teresa (Steve) Forsyth, Greenfield, Indiana; Marie (Mike) Clegg-Moore, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Sheryl Clegg, Winona, Minnesota; “step-son” John (Elena) Meyers, Winona, Minnesota; two siblings: Ronald (Frosty) Clegg, Beloit, Kansas; and Sharon (Bill) Hunter, Denver, Colorado; 14 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; extended family and friends.

Max was preceded in death by his parents; 10 siblings; a daughter, Josie (Clegg) Timm; and a grandson, Scott Prondzinski.

Services to remember Max will be 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 7, 2012, at Fawcett-Junker Funeral Home, Winona, with Douglas J. Penning leading prayers. Military burial honors will follow the service at the funeral home and will be performed by the American Legion, Leon J. Wetzel Post 9, Winona, Minn. Max will be laid to rest in Mount Hope Cemetery, Mankato, Kansas.

Visitation will begin at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.
