Obituary of John Peter Beuglet

Beuglet, John Peter

It is with tremendous sadness for the family of John Peter Beuglet to announce his passing on Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance after a traumatic illness. 

Born in Windsor and raised in Chatham, he was the son of the late William Beuglet & Donna Kee (nee Willis).

John will forever be missed by his wife, Kim Beuglet (nee Clogg), daughter, Dawn Beuglet-Pidgeon, son-in-law, Kim and his furry companion, Maggie. 

He will be reunited with his late son, Michael (1997).

Dear brother of Michelle Cornies (Richard) of Chatham, Susan Hoffus (Wayne) of B.C., David Beuglet of Dresden, Lizzy (John) Bard of Chatham, brother-in-law of Scott Clogg of Erieau, and Fred Castle of Chatham. 

Predeceased by his sister, Barbara Castle (2010) and his brother, Jeffrey Beuglet (2017). 

Missed by several nieces, nephews as well as many longtime and loyal friends. 

John was a fan of many sports and his allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys was unwavering. A weather aficionado, he was often referred to as Sunny Beuglet. He loved the simple pleasures of landscaping and yardwork at his home and the Kent Club. John loved blackjack at the Windsor Casino and playing Bolo Ball. 

He began his career at Union Gas, moving on as an Insurance Adjuster for 20 years with Beuglet Insurance Adjusting alongside his father. He then became the Steward of the Kent Club for over 30 years. He continued to work at the Kent Club until his hospitalization on March 14th. 

He was fun, loving, & dedicated, could tug at your heartstrings while at the same time, had a cantankerous side, which only endeared him to us more. 

As per John's wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Kent Club, 287 King Street W., Chatham on Sunday, April 21, 2024 from 2:00 - 5:00pm.
