Carl was born on September 27, 1955 in Clinton, Okla. to Carl and JoAnn McClure. The family moved to Dumas in 1955 and resided there until his death. He was a jack-of-all-trades and known as a fixer. He enjoyed people, and if he could help someone, he would. His favorite thing to do was to make people laugh. Carl was an avid reader with his nose constantly in a book. He was a man who loved the Lord and his children.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Donnie McClure; and a nephew.
Survivors include two daughters, Kendra McClure and Crista Brooks, both of Dumas; a son, Cameron McClure of Port Lavaca; a sister, Carla Reeves of Dumas; a brother, Phillip McClure of Dumas; six grandchildren, Maeci, Chloe, Kiara, Troy Scott, David, and Kambree; three nieces; a nephew; a great-niece; and two great-nephews.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial donations be made to Wesley Community Center, 1615 S. Roberts, Amarillo, TX 79102; or to Temple Baptist Church, 311 N. Maddox, Dumas, TX 79029.
