Obituary for James M. "Mike" McClellan
JAMES MICHAEL “MIKE” MCCLELLAN
James M. “Mike” McClellan passed away on March 27, 2021 at St. Dominic Jackson Memorial Hospital. He was 64.
A native of Lincoln, Alabama and born on July 22, 1956, he was the son of the late Edgar Millard McClellan and Beulah Lee Holcomb McClellan. He was a graduate of Talladega County High School. Mike was an estimator in the structural steel industry for his entire career and a current employee of Group Steel Erectors, Inc. He moved to Jackson in 1994, briefly moved to Birmingham in 2005, before returning to the Jackson area in 2009 where he had resided until his death.
Mike was a wonderfully kind and gentle person. He loved tennis, golf, sports cars, motorcycles, and classic rock, especially Pink Floyd. He had a passion for the outdoors and was a fiercely dedicated Alabama Crimson Tide football fan. Mike was a phenomenal human being that above all loved his friends and family. He was generous to a fault and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Evelyn Marie White; and a niece, Theresa Marie Suhr. He is survived by his brother, Clinton McClellan (Belinda), of Anniston, AL; brother-in-law, Alton White of Birmingham, AL, nephews, Thomas White (Tina), of Madison, MS and Brian McClellan (Maria), of Plover, Wisconsin; niece, Katrina McClellan, of Anniston, AL; and many great nieces, nephews; and other relatives.
Due to Covid-19 concerns, services will be held in Jackson, MS and Lincoln, AL at a date to be announced.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to: Wounded Warrior Project, Disabled American Veterans, or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
