Angus Howe McLoone was born on October 19, 1978 in Phoenix, Arizona. He left this world and ascended to heaven on September 18, 2020 due to complications from a recent automobile accident. He was surrounded by loving family members at the time of his passing.
Angus graduated from Brophy College Preparatory and indeed became part of the “Men for Others to Serve the World” family at Brophy. He also became the statistician for the varsity basketball team and relished his role under the leadership of Coach Westphal, and received great satisfaction being involved with the team. He then attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and received his BA degree in History. Angus loved promoting NAU and was a Previews Counselor for several years. He and his friends founded the DU fraternity chapter at the college, and Angus held the offices of Secretary and Treasurer, and was named Brother of the Year in 1998-1999. He received this honor because he exemplified the DU foundational values of Justice, Friendship, Character and Culture. Angus and many of his fraternity brothers remained very close and were incredible friends to him.
Angus worked extensively in the attorney services field specifically with Hawkins and Campbell, and Integrity Attorney Services. Most recently Angus was employed as a Court Operations Lead at the Superior Court of Maricopa County.
Angus was always kind and giving of himself, and the first to offer to help someone in need. He had a very gracious and polite way about him. He loved his family, how Fiona excelled in school, Fiona’s Lacrosse games, family dinners, his dogs, Star Wars, sports (especially Fantasy Football), the family horses, Kentucky Derby results, good conversation and a fun party! He was always extremely proud of his Irish heritage.
He is survived by his Wife Colleen McLoone and Daughter Fiona, his Mother Jeanne Johnson (Dan) and his Father Mark E McLoone (Nan), his Brother Mark McLoone, Jr (Chelsea), and his Sisters Laura Olsen (Kyle) and Claire McLoone, his Step Brother Scott (Jill), Aunt Maureen Chaplain (Dick) and Uncles Angus McLoone (Faith) and Ted McLoone (Claire), Cousins Cindy Salem (Marc), Cara Pelini (Marc) and Dr. Ted Chaplain (Karen), Aengus McLoone and numerous other nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his Grandparents Gloria and Bill Howe, and Dr. Edward and Jean McLoone, Cousin Ian McLoone, and his beloved dog Bentley.
Angus’ final wishes were to have a celebration of his life at one of his favorite restaurants with family and friends in attendance. Please join us at Aunt Chilada’s on the patio on November 15, 2020 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM, 7330 E. Dreamy Draw, Phoenix, AZ 85020. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to the Loyola Academy at Brophy College Preparatory (Brophyprep.org/Loyola-academy) or Valleywise Health Foundation (valleywisehealth.org/community/invest). We will be eternally grateful for the excellent care he received at Valleywise Maricopa County Hospital in their Level I Trauma Center.

My husband Tom Burger passed the day before Angus.
Tom coached Angus in basefall with the Madison league.
We are both grieving together.
I’m so sorry for your tremendous loss. Sending you love and prayers knowing that can not replace who and what was lost.
I remember when Colleen and Angus from when they were dating in college. They were such a great pair and seemed to always keep each other laughing. Angus had a great sense of humor! I have great memories of Angus from our NAU days and am so sad to hear of his loss from this world.
Thinking of you!
Angus my husband #2. You will be missed and I am so sad that you won’t be here with us. But, now we have our very own Irish angel looking down on us. Until we meet again.
My birthday will never be the same. Angus was always a bright light in my day and although we didn’t chat as much I always knew on our birthday we would catch up. I will always love and miss you Birthday Buddy!
Angus regularly came to our office when he worked for Integrity, and always greeted me and chatted when I stopped at the clerk’s office. A genuinely nice man who loved his family. He will be missed!

Deeply saddened to hear this news. Before working at the Clerk’s office, Angus was our long-time Court runner and I saw him every day. He was always so kind, smart and funny. He spoke many times about his daughter, things they did together and about how fast she was growing up. Sending my deepest condolences to all the family.
Shelley and Matt Sedwick
There are not enough words to say how sorry we are. Hugs to you all.
Sincere and deepest condolences to the McLoone Family.
My best memory of Angus is the time he came to my office and asked me to upload this video.
We watchd together, tears
of joy and amazement streamed down both of faces.
I have never forgotten that moment. Rest in peace old friend.
Jeanne, Dan, Colleen, & Fiona –
We are so very sorry to have learned that Angus has passed following an automobile accident. Our deepest sympathy and condolences. Such a tragedy…..
I have fond memories of those days three decades ago when Angus was a kind and considerate young man. For one reason or another we would commonly end up in a playful wrestling match and I can still see his bright smile and hear his infectious laughter. The last time I recall seeing Angus he was studying history at NAU and had found the love of his life, Colleen. It was apparent that the young man had transitioned into a mature and thoughtful adult.
Our hearts ache for you all during these difficult days. Just know that he touched many in a positive way during his time and he will be remembered. You all are in our thoughts.

I was shocked to find this. I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband and father, Colleen and Fiona. I did not know him but knew his wonderful smile and the smile on your face, Colleen when ever you talked about him., I send my love and prayers to you both!
Thoughts and prayers to the family. It’s been awhile but my kids babysitting Fiona has kept me in the loop. Good guy and I’m sure he will get his peace. RIP Angus.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You have my deepest condolences.
Much love to all of you,
I was shocked and saddened to hear that Angus was no longer with us. Our most sincere condolences to the entire McLoone family. It’s been quite a while since we last talked, but I still have very fond memories of growing up together.
All our love and best wishes from across the Sea.
James and Monica Grasso
Jeanne & Family,
I am so very sad to hear this news. My son James Grasso was best friends with Angus since Grade school at All Saints, Brophy Prep and NAU. Cub Scouts, Overnight fun times at each other’s homes, etc. I have such happy and fun filled memories of many weekend trips to northern AZ with the boys and many many Family ski trips together to Colorado. He was a good buddy as kids and like a 2nd son at my home. I am so sorry for your loss. Angus was an extraordinary person, always willing to help, be a wonderful friend and always be truthful & kind.
I will be there in spirit at the Memorial as I live in CA. My peace be with you. I send my love to you Jeanne and family. Lisa Grasso
I am so sorry for your loss. Angus will be missed. I met Angus at NAU where we were both Previews Counselors. Angus had such a kind heart, sweet disposition, ready and welcoming smile and laugh. He was a great friend to all.

We are so sad to learn of your loss.
We hope you and your family are okay.

My condolences to all of Angus’ family and friends. I worked with Angus several years while I was employed with the court system. He brought a positive energy into the room whenever he entered. He engaged those around him, helped when possible answering questions or giving directions, and never expressed frustration or irritation at the red tape that occasionally interfered with the progress of his work. I am grateful for having the opportunity to make his acquaintance. I was shocked to learn of his passing, but know that his positive and gracious nature will always remain, and push me to meet those standards on a daily basis. God bless. May you rest in peace.
Such love! Such hardship…
My prayers & hugs Colleen forever & always!
Jeanne and Family, I am so saddened to hear about the passing of Angus. I remember sharing our “mother/son” stories at Barrows and talking about the challenges of raising kids! Please accept my sincere sympathies and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sometimes there are just not words…..Bless You, and the family. Love Marianne Mulhall
I’m terribly saddened to hear of this. My deepest condolences to his wife Colleen, his daughter Fiona, his mother Jeanne, his father Mark, and all of Angus’s family and friends.

Well Angus certainly had a life well lived. What a role model for the rest of us. I remember him as a kid…he was always so kind and a loyal friend to my brother Phillip. How hard it must be to lose him so young! Don’t worry, Mary Grace will take care of Angus for you til you get to see him again. I’m sure he’ll be out their watching over all of us too…helping us to remember the kind and loyal things he would have done. Condolences for everhonre grieving Angus today.
Caroline and Jay Walshon
Today we just learned of Angus’s untimely passing. What a shock that gave us pause and tears. Although we only knew him briefly on the telephone when we needed help with our court filing, that interaction was sufficient to exemplify what a genuinely caring and wonderful human being he was. If only everyone live their life that way what a better would this would be.
Condolences to his family, friends and co-workers.
Dr. Jay & Caroline Walshon
So very sorry for this massive loss…The McLoone family is in our thoughts and prayers today. I’ll never forget our time at Brophy together Angus. You were always so steady with your smile and compassion. Though we haven’t spoken much since those days, I know you went to do great things in your community. Rest well old friend.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Angus. I only just found out. I had the pleasure of working alongside Angus many times in Maricopa County Superior Court. He will truly be missed. May he rest in peace. Our condolences to the McLoone family.
