Jon Eggenberger Obituary
Jon Elwood Eggenberger, 67, passed away Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020 at his home in Montgomery, Texas after a short battle with cancer.
Jon was born Nov. 28, 1952, in Lake City to Virgil and Elizabeth Eggenberger. He attended Boca Raton High School in Florida and was drafted to the Army in 1972 while attending the University of South Florida. In 1977, he completed his degree in business at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.
Jon had a passion for sports, traveling, and being with his family. He loved to play card games, golf, go to concerts, and truly found joy in making people happy. If you knew Jon you’d know that he could find optimism and positive light in anything, even another Vikings heartbreak. He had an abnormal talent of memorizing numbers and could divide large numbers in under three seconds. He will always be remembered for his bad “dad” jokes and his ability to make people laugh.
He is survived by his former wife, Jodi Eggenberger and their loving children, Jenna (Scott) Rogers, Jonathan Eggenberger (Vicki Lance), and Jill (Taylor) Sinjem; his grandchildren, Oliver and Maven Rogers; his brothers, Jay (Lisa) Eggenberger and Jan (Terry) Eggenberger; and dear friend and companion Sandy Turner. Jon was preceded in death by his parents, Virgil and Elizabeth Eggenberger; and his grandson, Noah Rogers.

Visitation is at 2:30 p.m. with a brief service at 3:30 p.m. at Gearty-Delmore Plymouth Chapel, 15800 37th Ave. N. in Plymouth, Minn., followed by a gathering of family and friends at Grizzly’s Wood-Fired Grill in Plymouth.
