George “Larry” Clegg, 82, of Thompsontown went to be with the Lord on October 5, 2020 at Lewistown Hospital. He was born on March 5, 1938 in Harrisburg. He was the son of the late John and Mildred (Nissley) Clegg. He was also the brother of Linda Billet of York.
Larry was a Patriot. He retired as a MSGT in the United States Airforce after 22 years of service. He also worked for the Quaker Oats Factory, Carlisle Tire and Rubber, served as a Deputy Sheriff, and in his retirement he hauled amish all over the country.
Larry was a straightforward man. He always got right to the point and didn’t mince his words. He was known as a great story-teller, had strong political views, loved working on all kinds of projects, and wanted things done “TODAY!”.
Racing was his passion as well as a big part of his life as the owner and supervisor of the Clegg Racing Team. He also enjoyed hunting, traveling, and spending time with his friends and family. He was a member of the Mifflintown American Legion, The Millerstown Moose, The Elks Lodge in NM, and the Curry County Sheriff’s Department Posse in NM.
