Michael McClung

Born
7/10/1947

Died
3/9/2013

 

 

Michael Joseph McClung went to be with the Lord on March 9, 2013, surrounded by his wife and children.  He was born on July 10, 1947 in Beaumont, Texas.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Bettye McClung and his daughter-in-law, JoAnn Moore McClung.  He is survived by his wife, Barbara; son, Christopher McClung; daughter, Katie Fickey; son- in- law, Mitchell Fickey; grandchildren, Grayson McClung, Brody Fickey, Davis McClung, Addison Fickey, and Samuel Fickey; and sister, Melissa McClung Pearson.

Mike was a teacher and Director of Transportation in Northside Independent School District for 30 years. He was a transportation visionary and always put student safety first. He was instrumental in the passing of the school bus crossing arm bill by the state of Texas in 1986.  He was committed to using the safest, most economical and environmentally friendly propane alternative fuel.  The opening of the Rhodes Transportation Station in 1990 made it the largest alternative fuel public transportation facility west of the Mississippi River.  He frequently spoke at national conferences, to state officials, and to school boards across the country concerning the viability and cost benefits of propane.  He was active in the Texas Association of Pupil Transportation, was awarded the Texas LPG's Presidential Citation, and appeared on Peter Jennings' nightly news segment, "The American Agenda". 

He had a heart for mentoring teenagers and was able to do so after retirement by teaching math at the Christian Academy of San Antonio and through visiting orphanages in Russia.  . 

Mike loved his family and spending time with them at home, traveling, sporting events, or at the beach.  His grandchildren brought him joy and purpose.  He loved riding the open roads, especially on his Harley. One of his greatest joys was music and sharing the trivia about each song with others.

Mike was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather.  He had numerous lifelong friends who remained faithful to the end.  He loved the Lord and sought to honor Him in all He did.  He was an amazing man who will be missed dearly but is now with His Lord and Savior.

Many thanks and praise to both the Texas Hospice team that served him and the Home Instead Senior Care provider.

Mike was one of my first contacts in TAPT and he answered many questions for me concerning the transportation business. He was always friendly and knowlegable and as a newbie to the feild, he was my hero. I know we have lost a great member to our family, but not as great as the loss to your family. I pray that God will comfort you and give you peace. I am thankful for all the years Mike chose to share his joy of transportation with others. Liz

When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little, but not to long and not with your head bowed low. Remember the life we once shared, miss me - but let me go. For this is a journey we all must take and each must go alone. It's all part of the Masters plan, a step on the way to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss Me - But Let Me Go. My deepest felt regards for a wonderful soul that helped and protected so many over the years. A truly good and decent man. He will remain with us through his accomplishments and in his children. May God Bless. Randy Pipes

Michael McClung became Director of Transportation shortly after I began working as a bus driver for Northside ISD. It was a pleasure to work for him and to know him. He was easy to talk with and was always available to discuss a problem one might have and give you solid advice as to how to handle a problem. It was very obvious that child safety was a # 1 priority with him. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Know that Mike is at peace and will continue to watch over his family from above.
