Following a brief illness, Paul Henry McClung passed away at the age of 64, surrounded by family at San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp, CA.
   He was born on February 1, 1955 in San Mateo, CA to Dave and Jeanette McClung.  He grew up in the Sunnybrae neighborhood, went to Aragon High and graduated from Peninsula High in 1973.  He started a family with Debbie Smith in 1975.  They moved to Manteca in 1984 and Paul worked for 30 years as a floor care specialist for Doctors Hospital of Manteca.
   Paul was a gifted musician.  He once played saxophone for the band City Slickers and he always loved to boogie woogie on the piano.  He was an enthusiast of the Blues and 50s/60s Rock and Roll.  Over the years he went to many concerts, blues festivals, baseball games, Jackson runs, and also built up quite a collection of records, books, and cards.  A southpaw known as "Pud" in his youth, he was a lifelong sports fan with a pretty good dipsy doo in his day.
   Paul was a great dad who loved his sons, the four J's.  They all enjoyed many sessions with him in the garage as he was Commander of the Rodge Watch.  "And now his watch has ended"..."Way she goes."
   The family will always celebrate his life.  He was preceded in death by his parents Jeanette and Lester (Dave) McClung and oldest brother David.  He is survived by his brother James "Jimmy Mac" McClung, sons Jesse, James, Jason, Jordan, and grandson Logan McClung.  He remains will be buried at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo, CA.
