Gregg Andrew Clausen

Gregg Andrew Clausen, age 51, passed away on May 12, 2020 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The son of Charles Clausen, deceased, and Mary Clausen, he was born on January 9, 1969. Gregg grew up a sports enthusiast, and was first, last and will always be a Spartan, including becoming a graduate of Michigan State University. Rooted in Okemos, Gregg - with a ready smile - made many loyal friendships that hold to this day. Backyard pickle, driveway hoops, golf, fall football formed the framework and his undeniable loyalty cast those friendships for a lifetime.

Gregg spent his last eleven years in Arizona practicing real estate appraising and enjoying the warm sun of the Southwest after 40 years on the banks of the Red Cedar. Even so, he really loved being on the water and found ways to plant himself on two islands for a handful of summers in between. Wherever Gregg laid his head at night, he always had comfort of mind and heart at the family cottage on Mullett Lake, where family and friends who love him dearly would bring out the best in him. There, behind the wheel of Meg, Gregg is sure to have found sanctuary.

Gregg will be greatly missed by his mother Mary of Okemos, MI; brother Eric (Nicole), and niece and nephews Kate, Ben and Max who reside in Naperville, IL. In addition, friend Katy Price, and many close uncles, aunts, cousins and good friends will miss his charms, high spirited and comedic energy, and above all his comradery. In these difficult times, please use his passing as a rallying cry to lend a hand to a brother in need.

A graveside service at Evergreen Cemetery in Lansing will be scheduled at a later date.

Dear Mary,
For an old word merchant I am totally at a loss for words that would adequately express our deepest sorrow and grief at your loss. He was a wonderful son and I know you have many memories to hold close. We got the word through the OHS alumni page and then to learn you also lost your brother. We are so so sorry. Love, Diane and Tom

My Family and I were heartbroken with the news of Greggs passing. We were friends growing up on the same block and the memories of going over there on snow days in the cold Michigan winters,lots of us playing sports and Greggs Mom always feed us. We will always remember what a kind person he was.

Gregg, a great Cornell Elementary hoops/kickball playground & classroom desk bud, we watched Magic Johnson/Special K MSU natty in 79, growing up thru Kinawa, OHS and then around campus at MSU, a true Spartan brother. Paths fade over the years, but strong memories remain. RIP Claus and were always in Green & White together, forever. Sincere Sympathies to Mrs. Clausen, Eric & family. Brian White

So very sorry for your loss.
I have sweet memories of Gregg standing in our doorway In Okemos asking to visit my little brother Chris. So touched during a visit to Arizona decades later where I shared a laugh and witnessed Greggs amazing kindness and enduring friendship with my brother and their Okemos Crew.
My prayers go out to your family. Rest In Peace Gregg.
