OBIT-Larry McLain

Larry McLain, 83, passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014, following a short illness.

Survivors include his wife of 62 years Juanita Davis McLain; children, Michele Hogan, Scott McLain, Cindy Lawrence and Tracy Garcia; and 12 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Mr. McLain was born in Girard, Ill. on July 18, 1930 and moved to Donna in 1960. After a 26-year career with Sears Roebuck in McAllen, he moved to Mission and ran an antique restoration and furniture repair business. He volunteered with Mission Historical Museum creating historical depictions used as exhibits.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making memorial contributions to the Mission Historical Museum.
