Kevin McClure Obituary

Kevin M. McClure, 63, a Huron native, passed away peacefully Tuesday morning, October 10, 2023, after a two year bout with pancreatic cancer at the Stein Hospice Care Center, Sandusky.

   Born on November 14, 1959, in Berea, OH the son of David Bernard and Mary Kathryn (Dee) McClure.  After graduation from Sandusky St. Mary's High School in 1978, Kevin joined the United States Marine Corps where he was selected for training as an intelligence specialist.  During a 21 year career across a broad spectrum of intelligence posts he attended Korean language training in the U.S. as well as Younsei University in South Korea.  He was later trained in the Arabic language in the United Kingdom.  

   During his career Kevin was posted in various positions domestically and abroad, serving notably at the National Security Agency, as well as duty as a strategic debriefer.  He often said though that his greatest professional pride came from simply counseling young men and women as a USMC Recruiter, posted in Akron, OH for three years.

His children are; daughter, Courtney Seenauth (McClure) (David Seenauth), daughter, Bethany Vardaman (O'Dell) (Harley Vardaman), Son, Brandon McClure (Leigha Glidwell), daughter, Katelynn McClure, son, Douglas McClure (Chase Dewitt), and daughter, Natalie McClure.

   Kevin's surviving grandchildren are, Dahlia Seenauth, Jassmyn Seenauth, Renae Seenauth, Gabriel Seenauth, Elizabeth Seenauth, Michael Seenauth, Joseph Seenauth, Alexander Seenauth, Matthew Seenauth, Harley Vardaman, Jr., Samuel Vardaman, Marek Vardaman, Jemimah Vardaman, Hadassah Vardaman, Demetrius McClure, Xavier McClure, Grayson Loew-McClure, and Reylyn Loew-McClure.  Kevin is also survived by 24 nieces and nephews and 26 great nieces and nephews.

Koch Funeral and Cremation Services, 520 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday morning, October 19, 2023, at 9 am at Sts.
