It is with great sadness that the family of David G. McClenic announces his passing on January 10, 2018 at the age of 72. A lifelong resident of Akron, David graduated from East High in 1963. He was a US Army Veteran serving in the Vietnam War. His hobbies included watching sports, bowling, fishing and playing scrabble, just to name a few. Working was no stranger to David. Growing up he had several odd jobs, delivering papers for the Beacon Journal, serving as a caddy for Semi-Pro golfers to help pay his way through college.

Dave graduated from the University of Akron in 1971 with a degree in Industrial Engineering. After graduation, he was employed with the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co, Macy’s as the first black Senior Executive, and United Research as a consultant for businesses and schools such as Georgetown University, Yale University, Mack Truck, the National Bank of Washington, and St. Anthony Hospital. Later he was hired to work with Diamond Crystal Salt as a Plant Operations Manager; Schulman as the General Foreman; and the Kroger Company as a distribution engineer. Most recently he worked for the Bank of America as an account specialist and lastly, the Oriana House ADM Crisis Center as an intern counselor. This gave him the opportunity to give back what was given to him 17 years ago. He worked there until his health declined and met many friends who loved him dearly.

Dave was preceded in death by his parents, Harper and Louise (Veal) McClenic; sister, Eloise McClenic; and nephew, Richard McClenic. He leaves to cherish his memory, loving wife, Bridgette; sons, David Justers and LaVik Jenkins; daughters, Carmen Culver, Samantha (Jason) Wade and Brandee (Damarcus) Wilkinson; brothers, Harper McClenic of Oak Park, MI and Richard McClenic aka Jacob II of Alexandria, VA; aunt, Mary (Charles) Burns; mother of his 3 daughters, Sandra (George) McClain; 12 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren. David also leaves a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and endless friends. A celebration of David’s life will be held on Tuesday January 16, 2018 11am at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church 442 Bell St. Akron, OH 44307. Family will receive friends from 9-11am at the church. Pastor Jeffrey A. Dennis officiating. Interment Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery.
