Longtime Pro Bono Supporter Dies

Col. Paul J McClure died Nov. 6 at the age of 93. Funeral services for the Vietnam War veteran and longtime Memphis attorney were held last Friday at the Colonial Park United Methodist Church. In 2008, McClure was featured in the December issue of the Tennessee Bar Journal for his commitment to pro bono work with low-income seniors after retiring from legal practice. "You just get satisfaction from trying to help people, hopefully helping," he said. "That's about all there is to it. I am appreciative to [the nursing homes] to let me come. It gives me something to do — otherwise I'd be taking naps or raking leaves."
