Obit Shane McClureGrafton/Millbury – Shane Paul McClure, 36, passed peacefully at home Tuesday, July 14, 2015 with his angels by his side.

He leaves his parents, Beverly (Sheeran) McClure and her companion Jim Davey of Millbury and Daniel McClure and his companion Nancy Curran of Washington, N.H.; his best friend and brother, Corey McClure and his partner Hannah Burr of South Grafton; his paternal grandparents, Francis and Nancy McClure of Grafton; his maternal grandmother, Gail Wilen and her husband Stan of Westwood; his maternal grandfather, Kenneth Sheeran and his wife Joanne of Punta Gorda, Fla.; his adoring niece, Calleigh Furtado; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and the two loves of his life, his caring sweetheart, “Tink,” and his beloved dog, “Sadies.” Shane also leaves extended family, Kelsey and Josh Davey, Jessica Thompson and spouse Kris Thompson, Ryan, J.C. Curran and his wife Samantha and Tyler Curran.

Shane was born June 3, 1979 in Worcester, and was raised and educated in Grafton, living there most of his life. He was first and foremost a great son, loving brother, uncle, being known as “Unkie Shane” within his family, and a loyal friend to many people who had the good fortune of knowing him. He had a big heart, a kind and gentle spirit, and would help anyone he could. He was known to give the “best hugs,” a kiss and an “I Love You” with family and friends alike. He also had a special bond with his grandparents, which gave great joy to them and to himself.

Shane loved the outdoors, particularly fishing in New Hampshire with his dad, going to Vinalhaven Island in Maine with family. He was also a talented craftsman, working proudly for Dean Michael Design side by side with his brother Corey on many building projects.
