I had mentioned in an earlier post what someone had told me about death. He said: "If, when you think of someone who has died and you smile, that person was worth knowing." After his funeral. yesterday, there were lots and lots of smiles.....and laughter. His funeral was "typically Jud". The music was amazing, the pastors were fantastic, his eulogies were great, and he had requested that when the service was over the BeeGees be played as we exited the building. The song? "Staying alive"!! That funeral was "pure Jud"....and lots of people were smiling.

I am Mike Spargo, brother of Jud Spargo. He and I had many conversations about religion, death, burial options, etc. He asked me on several occasions to "write a funny obituary". Sorry, Bro, but today is not the day for a funny obituary even though I could tell literally a dozen stories that would generate a ton of laughter...maybe later.
Jud was preceded in death by parents Howard Spargo, Sr and Jean Spargo Dellinger. Also by younger brothers Ron and Chuck and many aunts and uncles. He is survived by Jud Spargo III, Lisa Morelock, and Justin Spargo and grandchildren.....and a host of good friends and golfing buddies.
A good friend once said, "if..when you think about someone who has died and you smile, that person was worth knowing". Jud was certainly worth knowing as a brother. It would take a page for me to write about all the positive things he did for me.
I miss him already, but I am smiling.
