Harold Lynn McClung, of Whitney, TX, passed away on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at the age of 73. He was born in Hillsboro, TX. He was preceded in death by his father, Bowers Harold McClung. He is survived by his mother, Grace Marcheta Wimberly McClung of Hillsboro, TX; his son Grady Scott McClung and daughter-in-law Rachel along with their three children – Mark, Joshua, and Sara – all of Boerne, TX; and his son Tom Lee McClung and daughter-in-law Carrie, with their children Zoe, Noah, and Sammie Dean, all of Bryan, TX. He is also survived by his step-son, Seth Brewer, of San Diego, CA.

Harold will be remembered by many as a 5th and 6th grade Social Studies teacher at schools in Corpus Christi, Burnet, Snook, and Ballinger. He also impacted the lives of many student-athletes as a basketball, baseball, and track coach at Snook ISD, helping to coach Snook to several state basketball and track championships in the early 1980’s. To this day, former students and athletes remember him for his tough but fair approach on and off the court.

Harold is most fondly remembered, though, as Papa by his grandchildren, who could always count on him to see their performances and ball games. Though Harold had no siblings, he leaves behind many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends, whom he loved dearly.

Memorial services will be planned for a future date.

Condolences

  1. So sorry that Harold is gone but so glad that he was here and that he was such an important part of our lives. He did so much for so many. Over the years he was a fellow student, friend, neighbor, colleague, and much more. We loved him and all of his family just like they were all part of our family.

  2. I have fond memories of Harold McClung. He was my first graduate assistant at Texas A&M University when I arrived there in 1968. Harold had just graduated from A&M and had chosen to become a teacher. That is why we met as I was a beginning professor in the Department of Education. That year was a transition year as we worked to move our professional unit from a department to a college. That was 50 years ago, and now the College of Education is planning its 50th anniversary. Harold was a part of that transition. I am so sorry to learn of my friend’s death. My best wishes to his family during these times.

  3. I am heart broken because Harold Lynn was a great friend. Even though I only see him at class reunions (HHS ’64), he has always had a place in my heart–special friends forever. My love, Bettie Kyser Duff

  4. So sorry to hear about Harold’s passing. He was a great person who was well respected by many of us who knew him. I will always remember him as a friend who listened to my complaints when we were next door neighbors. Even after he moved away we still communicated quite often. Grady and Tom, you had a really great dad. I know you will miss him but know that he is watching over you from Heaven.
    My prayers are with you always

  5. I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Harold. He was a good friend . I only wish I had kept in contact more often after he moved away. When we worked together he was always willing to listen to my many complaints, even though he didn’t always agree with me. He even offered solutions that I didn’t always agree with. Grady and Tom, you hit the jackpot with him as your father. May he rest in peace.

  6. I was saddened to learn of the passing of Harold. He was a great guy and a good friend to me when we worked together. He listened to me when I needed someone to listen to my many rants. He gave me advice, some I took and some I ignored. I wish we had kept in touch more after he moved away. Grady and Tom, you guys hit the jackpot having Harold as your father. May he rest in peace.
