Alan McClain

In Loving Memory

McClain, Alan L. “Al”

Alan “Al” McClain, 49, of Arnold MO, passed away on Tuesday, January 2, 2024. Husband to Nicole Mcclain and father to Abigail, Josephine, Sophia, Jeremiah “Frog”, and Alexander “Z” McClain.

Alan was born in November of 1974 to Glen and Lana McClain. He had a true “boyhood” childhood he always reminisced about. A dear brother to Candy Starr, Jim Wischmeier, Brandy Zaiger and Paul McClain. Nephew to Susan Strecker and Wayne McClain.

In 1993, Alan bravely called Nicole Lear to ask on a date and the rest is history. They continued to have 5 beautiful children throughout the 30 years of their marriage. Alan devoted himself to exemplify true family values for his children. He was a proud father-in- law to Fernando Posy and Ryan O’Connell and grandfather to Ezekiel, Hudson, and Abel.

For nearly 32 years, Captain McClain selflessly dedicated his life to serving the Rock Community Fire Protection District. He started his journey as a volunteer firefighter in 1992, transitioned to a full-time role as a Firefighter/EMT in 1998, and ascended through the ranks to become Captain in 2022. Captain McClain’s unwavering commitment and extraordinary skills were evident throughout his career.

He will be missed dearly but never forgotten.

Visitation at Kutis South County Chapel 5255 Lemay Ferry Rd. Sunday January 7, 3-7 pm. Funeral Mass Monday January 8, 1:00 pm at Immaculate Conception Church in Arnold. Service concludes at church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital or to Backstoppers, organizations that were near and dear to Alan’s heart.
