Local Funeral Director becomes a World Champion

Congratulations to our very own Jonathan Brogden for winning his second consecutive International Powerlifting League (IPL) competition in his weight class and becoming a World Champion at the Mr. Olympia Pro Powerlifting Competition in Las Vegas, NV.

When Jonathan is not assisting our communities’ families by providing gentle guidance and helping lift the burden of funeral planning, he spends his time lifting weights; HEAVY WEIGHTS.

This December, Jonathan became a World Champion in the IPL by pressing 507lbs, winning him the gold medal. With this win, he has now earned a World Title to add to his already impressive collection of accolades which include 5 North Carolina state records.

Jonathan’s compassion and dedication to his sport is directly linked to his passion for helping those in need. On behalf of Groce Funeral Homes we would like to offer our congratulations but also our appreciation for Jonathan and his efforts.
