~ The Obituary ~

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and bot faint.                                                                                Isaiah 40:31

     Robert Lee McClain, son of the late Aleatheria McClain and Lawrence Gilchrist, was born September 8th, 1948 and departed this life on May 21, 2017 at his home in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
