John Henry Hazelrigg
June 23, 1939 to January 6, 2024

Resident of Dana Point, CA


John was born June 23, 1939 in Peru, IN to Henry and Margaret (Leffel) Hazelrigg.

John was raised on a farm in Indiana, raising sheep and tending crops. At the age of ten, John professed to serve God at the Mount Sterling (Illinois) convention, and remained true to that commitment for the rest of his life. John graduated from Deedsville High School in 1957, spent some time in California, then returned to Indiana, where he met and married Myra Hilligoss in 1960. John and Myra moved to California in 1962, where they raised three children, and John worked in real estate. John started work for Allstate in 1969, where he worked his way up in the company to a directorship at the home office in Northbrook, Illinois. John retired from Allstate in 1994, and John and Myra moved to Dana Point, where John became a Vice President at the Automobile Club of Southern California and helped form their life insurance division.

John was predeceased by son, John Scott, and grandson, Andre João (Portuguese equivalent for John). John is survived by his cherished wife, Myra, son Eric (Sandra), and daughter, Lisa (Thomas). John leaves a lasting legacy of nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and many friends made along the way.

John won a lot of travel through business and loved to travel. John loved to reflect about his childhood in Indiana and growing up on a farm. John had a huge soft spot for all his dogs. John got his pilot’s license in the early 1970s and enjoyed taking his family flying, especially flying to Catalina Island for birthdays. John would enlist his young children to spot other traffic, a daunting responsibility for a 5-year-old that still traumatizes them today. John participated in several Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) tours and loved to recount his Midwest adventures. John loved classic cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, offering and giving rides around Dana Point to friends and family.

After a long, progressive illness, John passed away peacefully in his sleep.

John was a faithful and honest husband, dad, grandpa, and friend who touched many lives. He will be greatly missed.

A memorial service will be held on January 20, 2024 at 11am, at the auditorium located at WARCO headquarters, 1337 W. Braden Court, Orange, CA 92868. A light lunch will be served afterward.

    Myra and family,
    I’m so very sorry to hear of John’s passing! He is now receiving unimaginable comfort and resting in God’s promises.
    I pray that you will embrace God’s comfort and that of those who love you.

    John was one of my best friends at Allstate and all the way to the end. He ALWAYS made me laugh. He and I traveled the US together with Allstate and we were a heck of a team. I will always remember his stepping in and helping me in Reno when the altitude and possibly the drinks at dinner kind of did me in during a presentation…he noticed I was having problems, stepped in, took over and it was just flawless. And…he was a scholar…CPCU, CLU and a Masters degree to name a few. John always supported me, always made me smile…and was just the kind of friend anyone would want at their side. God Bless John and Myra…I send my love.

    You were a wonderful brother, John. I have only pleasant memories of being your little sister in Indiana. You’ve helped Win and me through the years. I’ll never forget you.
