October 12, 1942August 2, 2018

George A. McClure II passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his devoted family on August 2, 2018.

He was born in Monroe, MI on October 12, 1942 to George Alfred I and Thelma (Dieterle) McClure. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Bonnie Schrauben. He is also survived by daughters, Tracy (Paul) Norris of Flowery Branch, GA; Amy (Gary Szpotek) of Clinton Township; son, Chris (Jessica) McClure of DeWitt; grandchildren, Connor and Cole Norris; Nikolas and Brendan Szpotek; Jackson and Lillian McClure; sisters, Sondra Shooter and Maureen (Don) Call; brothers, Kenneth (Debra) and Michael McClure; mother-in-law, Mae Lehman; and numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and father-in-law, Edwin Schrauben.

George had a 50-year career as a respiratory therapist, manager and business owner. In 1983, he started and successfully managed McClure Respiratory Home Care for over 20 years. He enjoyed caring for and making a positive impact on every patient he helped.

George was a kind-hearted, soft-spoken, generous man who loved his family, a good round of golf, and University of Michigan athletics (Go Blue!). George always enjoyed the company of cherished friends, a good happy hour, and “running errands.”

George was confirmed at St. Mary’s Church in Williamston this past year, where he found peace and comfort in his faith.

Visitation will take place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Williamston at 10:00am on Friday, August 10, 2018. A funeral mass will follow at 11:00am to celebrate George’s life.

From the ninth grade on, George, Dennis and I have been the best of friends and inseparable. We had the very same interests probably like most teenage boys: girls, cars, crazy driving, and tough Dads. I would love to share some memories of those times but feel it would be wise to not do that. Life got in the way and we lost contact until our 50th reunion. When we saw each other at the reunion, it was like we had never been apart. Still telling stories about girls, cars, and crazy driving.

We've had 8 years of great times together with our wives. It has ended too soon.

George and those memories will stay with me forever.

My cousin George was one amazing man and one of my all time heroes. He overcame adversity, which is one of the reasons he became a compassionate respiratory therapist. He will be greatly missed. Love you George. I know you leave behind a grieving family, but you are free of suffering and you have left them many wonderful memories. Rest in peace cousin.

I have so many memories of George and all the family, from living next door to them in Williamston. I was so sorry to hear of George's passing. He was so giving and friendly. My heart goes out to Bonnie, Tracy, Amy and Chris, and all the family. May your memories give you comfort and peace. George would be the only reason I would say, "Go Blue". I am sorry I will miss attending the services, but my prayers are with you all in your time of loss.

Bonnie and family,
While you have lost a loving husband, father and grandpa heaven has gained a great man! He is the only person we’ve ever known to be such a dedicated Wolverine yet loved by so many Spartans! We know that our son Brian has gained an angel to help guide him at there heavenly home!! Always remember this;
Those we love don’t walk away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved still missed and very dear. For death leaves a hard ache no one can heal and love leaves a memory no one can steal !!
George left us all with so many great memories, great words of wisdom and awesome hugs that we’ll always cherish.
We are all better because he was in our lives.
Please accept our heart felt sympathies and condolences!!
Tim and Judy Nichols

I had the pleasure of working for the "Best Boss" ever at McClure Respiratory Home Care, Inc. George was the kindest and most generous boss and friend. His kindness and generosity was an every day occurrence to whoever he came in contact with, but especially toward his patients.
Heaven truly has gained an angel. My thoughts and prayers to Bonnie, Tracy, Amy & Chris.

Remembering our early days at Lansing General, sitting on the bleachers watching our girls cheerleading and George helping me take care of my mom by delivering her oxygen supplies when she would visit from Arizona. He left a long legacy of caring for others.

Remembering are drives home from Thursday Bible Study. Truly was an honor to know this man. We shared much conversation and support during those short drives.
RIP my friend and may God bless your entire family.
