Kenneth's Story

Text size

Kenneth Lee McClure, 79, of Mitchell, went to be with his heavenly Father Thursday at his residence.
Born Nov. 9, 1937, in Bedford, he was the son of Russell Landis and Mary Elizabeth (Brewster) McClure. He married the love of his life, Marilyn Jo Pruett, Feb. 26, 1957, and would have celebrated 60 years of marriage. He was a third generation employee of the B & O Railroad, retiring with 43 years of service.
Kenneth had such love for family and friends and blessed those who knew him. He coached baseball and basketball youth leagues, was a 50-year member of Mitchell Masonic Lodge No. 228 F. &A. M., and an active servant of the Mitchell Church of the Nazarene.
His hobby of golf brought great friendships through the years. He always looked forward to the Monday morning golf scrambles at Saddlebrook Golf Club.
The love and passion he had for family was so contagious. Kenny leaves behind a daughter, Debra J. (Bill) Arthur of Mitchell; a son, Douglas L. (Kelly) McClure of Washington; grandchildren Chad T. (Sara) Reynolds, Travis L. (Sarah) Reynolds, Curtis L. (Amy) McClure, Tyler (McKenzi) Arthur, Kayla Arthur and Brett Arthur. Also, great-grandchildren Hayden Reynolds, Grant Reynolds, Jack McClure, Macy McClure, Elsi Arthur, Yali Arthur, Kori Arthur, Noah High and Isabelle High.

Rheem) Delaney of Bloomington, sisters and brothers-in-law, Jim and Sharon Ball of Bloomington, Thane and Barbara Dean of Polk City, Florida, and Carolyn Knauss of St. Louis, Missouri.
His parents preceded him in death.
