HAIGLER -- Lee S. "Stanley" Glegg, 86, died Sunday (Oct.15, 2006), at the Hillcrest Care Center in Wray, Colo.

After graduation, he moved to California where he attended Compton College.  While attending college, he became ill and was hospitalized.  It was there that he was give insulin shock treatments -- which were just in the experimental stages.  Consequently, he was over-treated and nearly lost his life due to the treatments.  This damaged his mental health permanently and he lived in health care centers for the rest of his life.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lee and Florence Clegg; and two brothers, Neal and Kent Clegg.

Survivors include his sister, Virginia Clegg and husband, Don; and nieces and nephews.

At his request, his body was donated to science to enhance and further the study of medicine.
