Bob and Lynda Wise We were sad to hear the news about uncle John, he was the last McClellan of his generation. We are now the older generation whether we want to be or not. It's our turn to pass our memories down to the younger generation. I remember well when John and Anna Mae got their first color TV and John loved "Bonanza"! Bob and I would go over to watch it every week! We had so much fun! We send prayers for the family and Vickie for being there for uncle John. It meant so much to have someone with him.

Uncle John was the last of some special Uncle and Aunts. He and my Mother Alice whom died in 2018 shared and created a lot of lasting memories especially when you recall all the family reunions over the years for the Wysongs and McClellans, My memory only goes back to 1963. all are gone now. His conversations were generally comical yet sencere. His voice was rocky sharp. I picture him wearing a Cicinnati Reds cap. laughing about something with a crack in his voice. To Bud and Mallisa my sympathy to you and the family. I share your loss. We cousins are left to keep are past Aunts and Uncles memories alive. He will be missed. Larry and Gary Fugate

John was a wonderful man and we enjoyed talking to him on a regular basis. He was always fun to be around and to laugh with each time we talked. He will be sadly missed by us! Prayers for the family and his special friend, Vickie! Lee and Donna Nester
