Jeffrey Michael Clough-Garvin

January 27, 1976August 1, 2019

Jeffrey “Jeff” M. Clough-Garvin, 43, of Weare, NH died tragically and suddenly on Thursday, August 1, 2019.

Jeff was loved by so many people of all ages. He could not imagine the love and support that he is missing out on. His beliefs were strong but he accepted other people’s opinions. “I am a Libertarian.” Jeff appreciated an intelligent exchange of ideas and was always looking to broaden his scopes. He had an unending curiosity for all things and handled as much as he could with humor and intelligence accompanied by pride and stubbornness.

If you were his friend, he was loyal to the end.

Members of his family include his beloved wife, Cheryl-Lee Clough-Garvin; his two daughters, Adelaide and Elidi who were his life, and his two step-children, Aspen and Billy Dubuque, who he was very proud of; his parents, Gary and Candie Garvin; his sister, Kelly (James Stein); aunts, Jan O’Malley (Patrick) and Tammy Fruscio (Mark); uncles, Ed Morrell (Sylvia), Kip Garvin (Melanie) and Bill Garvin; his cousin clan includes, Patrick (Gina), Kyle, Marc, Lindsay (Clayton, Riley (Erin), Anthony (Alexis), Jenna (Eli), Dominic (Abby) and Hunter (Kayla) and his sister in law, Jennifer Clough. Although he had not met them, he is also survived by his cousin clan’s children who would have adored Jeff, the Gentle Giant. Children were drawn to him, as he was to them.

The family would like to thank the Hopkinton Community for their love and support, friends and relatives both near and far for their kindness that we will never forget.

Hug your loved ones, love them unconditionally and keep asking questions of authority…he’s smiling at us all now.

A long time ago, Jeff worked at my school. He had such an effortless way of communicating with students. He was a positive role model and always had a big smile on his face. I am sure he was a wonderful dad! Words just aren't enough to express our deepest sympathy for all of your family and especially the youngest, your "girlies".
From our hearts to yours,
Kathy and Bill Channon

I have lost many nights sleep over this. Jeff babysat my siblings and myself when our parents went out. I always hated babysitters except for Jeff. Years later and children of my own I still think so highly of him. I loved running into him at the Hopkinton state fair. His smile would brighten anyone’s bad day. This isn’t fair, and he certainly didn’t deserve this. Jeff was the salt of the earth. I will never forget him and my heart breaks for his children and his parents.

I have such wonderful memories of Jeff, Kelly and the Garvin family. I was Jeff's 4th grade teacher and remember him fondly. He had a great smile and a wonderful sense of humor. He brought joy to our classroom.
I was new to Hopkinton and the whole family welcomed me to the school community. My thoughts are with you all during this tough time. Sending lots of hugs. Mr. Pike
