William “Kevin” McClure, age 70, of Hanover Park, IL, passed away peacefully in Bartlett, IL on August 31, 2023. He was born April 11, 1953 in Richmond, IN to his loving parents, William D. and Mary M. (née Holmes) McClure.

He enjoyed many sports, and brought family and friends together for over 30 years with his March Madness tournaments. He loved sports, old music, and his Vegas trade shows.
The family is grateful to his dearest friend and business partner, Bonnie Shoemaker, for always being there for him.
