Charles McClure

Death Notice

McCLURE, Charles Rafton - Peacefully at home on Thursday, September 4, 2014, Charlie McClure, of London in his 85th year. Beloved husband for 57 years of Eleanor. Devoted father of Patricia (John Koreen) and Catherine (Chris Lierman). Proud Grandpa and Papa to Gunnar Henrik and Beckett McClure Koreen, and Jane Mary and Benjamin Charles Lierman. Son of the late Mary and George McClure. Brother of Catherine (Lloyd Van Dusen) and the late Georgina (Norman Poulton) and Bette (Allen McClure). Fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews in Manitoba. Charlie proudly worked for CP Rail for 43 years. He started at 18 years old in the mailroom, leading to a successful career in Marketing and Sales. Charlie’s career took him and his family across Canada, eventually settling and retiring in London, ON. As Charlie worked and raised his family, he accomplished his dream of attaining a University Degree at night school. He was a devout member of Siloam United Church, London and St. Stephen’s on the Hill United Church, Sudbury, serving on many committees and enthusiastically singing as a tenor in the choirs. Charlie thrived in retirement: he loved books, movies, coffee and golf with the boys, and supporting his grandchildren at all their sporting events. Special thanks to Dr. Nancy Behme, the Cardiac Rehab Program at the Central Branch YMCA of Western Ontario, Rev. Sheila Macgregor and the Siloam United Church community. Family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 9 from 7-9 pm at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond. Charlie’s life will be celebrated during a memorial service at Siloam United Church, 1240 Fanshawe Park Road East, on Wednesday, September 10 at 11 am. Reception to follow in the church. Private family interment at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Siloam United Church or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
