John Augustine Mulgrew lost his battle tragically on July 30th 2021, at the young age of 31.
Born on february 4th 1990 to Ida Ann and Edward Mulgrew in Gaithersburg, MD. John grew up
in New Market, MD for most of his life, where he had a huge impact on the lives of his friends
and family. John was the father to five beautiful children; Jaxon, Fionnagh, Aurora, Patrick and
Owen. John was passionate about art, music, nature, animals and helping others. Although
John faced many battles throughout his short life, John never wanted others to feel that same
pain. John wanted to be a better person and help others overcome their addiction and mental
health struggles. No matter how difficult things got, John would put his issues aside to help
anyone in need. John was preceded in death by his Father, Edward Mulgrew, his mother Ida
Ann Mulgrew, his stepfather Edward Magruder and his sister Jessica Mulgrew. He is survived by
his sister Autumn, brother Eddie and his children Jaxon, Fionnagh, Aurora, Patrick and Owen and many special
family members and friends. In Lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Go Fund me
