In Memory of
Hugh Cameron McClure
-

Hugh “Huby” Cameron McClure, 81, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2024, in Katy, TX.  He was born on April 23, 1942, in Edinburg, TX, to Hugh Cameron McClure, Sr. and Ruth Mae Overhue McClure. He was the oldest of six brothers.

Hugh graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, TX, in 1960.  In 1963, Hugh married his high school sweetheart, Darlene Jean Nippert.  He worked for Southern Canning in Highlands, TX, until 1968, when he started a 31-year career in the Instrument Department at the then Gulf Oil Corporation and later Chevron Cedar Bayou Chemical Plant in Baytown, TX.

In 1977, Hugh, Darlene, and their two sons, Allen and Jody, moved from Highlands to Kenefick, TX, where Hugh and Darlene lived until 2022, when they moved to Richmond, TX.  In addition to working at Chevron, Hugh also operated a tractor business that included stump grinding, landscaping, bush hogging, and mowing.  An avid fisherman in the lakes around east Texas, he most enjoyed the fishing tournaments that Gulf and Chevron would sponsor.  Hugh enjoyed the Instrument Department “family” and missed them the most upon his retirement in 1999.

Hugh is survived by his wife, Darlene; their two sons, Allen and wife Pam of Pittsboro, NC, and Jody and wife Michelle of Richmond, TX; 5 grandchildren, Sarah, David, Hannah, Tyler, and Kaelynn; 2 brothers, Jeff and Dan.  He is preceded in death by his parents and his brothers, Edwin, Ronnie, and Michael.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at 1:00 PM at the Palms Memorial Park at 2421 N Hwy 146, Dayton, TX.

Flowers can be sent to the Beresford Funeral Home, 13501 Alief Clodine Rd, Houston, TX 77082.

Hugh was especially loved at the Cedar Bayou Plant in Baytown. He was there when it was Gulf Oil and still there when it became Chevron Chemical. Passing through the main office frequently, he always stopped to visit various offices and talk to us. We looked forward to that; he was full of information and was so pleasant and interesting. Hugh was truly a wonderful person. My condolences to Darlene (who he talked about a lot) and his sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren. May the God of all comfort give you His peace and ease your grief.
