Carmichael Funeral Home
Michael McClelland, 57, a beloved and devoted husband and father passed suddenly on August 5, 2015 in Powder Springs, Georgia. He was born in China Lake, California and later moved to Portland, Oregon where he began his loving family and 37 year career with United Parcel Service.
Mike’s life was filled with passion for his family--his positive spirit and humor radiated. Constantly on-the-move, Mike lived his life to the fullest through boating, water skiing, snow skiing, bowling, softball and hunting. And of course we cannot overlook his affinity for corvettes and car shows.
Mike's creative talent and enthusiasm in serving God was present in his many community projects -- from building homes for Habitat for Humanity, to feeding the children, to fundraising events for Adopt-A-Platoon and domestic violence organizations. A natural leader, Mike often was called to serve on many councils and boards for these initiatives.
Mike's legacy will live on through his soul mate, Karen, his beloved children, Zachary, Kalena, and son-in-law Brandon, and his treasured grandchildren, Aysly and Finnian, his parents Robert and Joanne, and extended family both of blood and community.
We are truly blessed to have shared a positive, loving and adventurous life with Michael. Please share your fondest memories below.
Thank you for all the prayers and in lieu of flowers please make donations to his favorite charity to feed the children - STRIVE Entrepreneurs Inc, 48 Henderson Street SW, Marietta , GA , 30064, http://www.striveinc.org/services.html
