Ryan Alexander McClure of Stow departed this life too soon Thursday, March 12, 2015.
Ryan was born on June 17, 1988, in Akron and was a lifelong area resident. He graduated from Stow Munroe Falls High School in 2006, and worked at A-1 Parking Lot Services for the last 11 years. We knew Ryan as a generous, selfless young man who never knew a stranger.
Ryan was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle and friend, and is survived by his parents John and María McClure of Stow; grandparents Jack McClure of Cuyahoga Falls and María Ortiz of Orlando, FL; three sisters, Ana (Steve) Theisen of Tallmadge, Joanie McClure of North Canton, and Kathy (Seth) Fritz of Louisville; two brothers, Aaron (Starla) McClure of North Canton, and Sean (Elissa) McClure of Dallas, TX; 16 nieces and nephews, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and Larry Weitzell of Stow, Ryan’s second dad.
He often said that his work was his heart. He enjoyed the challenge of fixing things whether it was his truck or a washing machine. Ryan loved making us laugh especially while wearing his banana suit and singing the "Peanut Butter and Jelly" song.
He is preceded in death by grandparents Felipe Ortiz, Sr. and Evelyn McClure.
