Vernon Wesley McClure of Choctaw, walked into the presence of our Savior on Dec 2, 2017. Vernon was born Sept 11, 1930 to John & Bessie (Schwartz) McClure. He was the youngest of three, having two sisters, Ilene Deweese & Nadine Capps.

He attended Liberty & McLoud schools. Vernon served in the army during the Korean War. He was stationed for two years at Fort Hood, Tx. He married Dorothy Maurine Schwartz on December 30, 1951. He built his family home and lived 2 miles from where he was born all his life. He retired in 1985 from Tinker Air Force Base, as an electrical engineer.

Vernon was an inventor at heart. He loved to take ordinary things and make them better. He was his happiest with Maurine by his side, traveling to south Texas to visit family and friends for the winters.

He is survived by one sister, Nadine Capps; his two daughters, Sharon & Danny Keener of Choctaw, Teresa & David Shupe of Oklahoma City; 4 grandchildren, Kyle & Kristi Keener, Kayla & Ryan Smoot, Cassi & Adam Rosko and Adam & Casey Shupe; 7 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
