The family of John Stegall is having a celebration of life for him on June 23 at 11 a.m. They stated that we all knew he was not a formal or professional person, so they felt they wanted to remember the man that he was in a way he would appreciate.
Guests are asked to bring a lawn chair or folding chair to the gravesite and plan to share a story or memory of him or read a favorite scripture verse(s) if willing and would like to. No one is required to speak if they so chose.
Lunch will follow at the house, so bring that lawn chair on over so you’ll have a seat there as well.
