Rubie “Bill” McClure, age 96 of Swanton, Ohio, passed away peacefully at home in his sleep, Thursday morning, March 7, 2024.  Bill was born November 23, 1927 in Toledo, Ohio to the late Rubie Arlo and Clista May (Worline) McClure.  Bill was a 1945 graduate of Swanton High School, and served in the United States Navy.  On August 14, 1948, he married Beryl "Myrt" Overmyer.
