Who Shot John

Who Shot John
(Tom McClain)

November 24, 2015




Services for Thomas E. McClain, Jr, 78, of Tyler will be held Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 10:30 AM at Stewart Family Funeral Home in Tyler. Tom peacefully went to his heavenly home while surrounded by family on Tuesday, November 24 following a lengthy illness. Family will receive friends Friday November 27, 2015 from 6:00 to 7:00 PM at Stewart Family Funeral Home.


Tom was born December 15, 1936 in Dallas, Texas. He is survived by his wife of 55 years Irma McClain; daughter Jennifer Johnson and husband Jimmy of Flint, daughter Beverly Crossley of Tyler and son Jack McClain and wife Jodi of Bogota, Colombia. Proud grandfather of Melissa Welch and husband Clint of Winona, Reese Crossley and wife Erin of Kerville, Jessica Johnson of Breckenridge, CO, and Jacob Johnson of Lubbock. Great grandfather of Ryder and Weston Welch of Winona. Very special nephew John McClain and wife Helene of Ventura, CA and their daughters Erin and Shannon. He was a loving and always protective brother of his big sister Ann Morton of Fayetteville, Arkansas.


Tom was raised in Highland Park and Irving, Texas. He graduated from North Texas State College and was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. He enjoyed a very rewarding career in sales and was well respected in his industry as an honest man whose word was as good as gold. Despite his many successes in business, Tom placed far more value in his family and friends; and as such very wisely retired at 55 in order to enjoy his family, friends, and hobbies. He was a Firearms enthusiast, collector of western memorabilia, Cowboy Action Shooter and all around good old boy born a century too late. Nobody valued the company of family and good friends or the pleasure of good conversation more than Tom.


There is much that can be said about Tom, but all that needs to be said is he was a man of integrity and his word. He was a proud Texan and emulated all that is good about the great state he lived in.


In lieu of flowers, family requests donations to Hospice of East Texas who provided exceptional care in Tomís last months, or a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of those who have sacrificed so much for our great nation.





We will miss you Tom.  Rest in the Peace of the Lord.
See you on the other side!
