Raymond L. McClanahan, 67, of Indianapolis, passed away Tuesday, March 29, 2016, at IU Health in Carmel.
Born in Milan, Indiana, July 13, 1948, to Joseph and Martha McClanahan, he attended a two-room schoolhouse in Friendship. Graduating from Jac-Cen-Del High School, he joined the Army at 18. Due to a back injury, he served a short stint in the Army. He worked for William F. Steck; Hession Plumbing in Indianapolis; Dunham Plumbing Company, Inc. for 10 years; Loren Moore Plumbing; and had his own business as well. His last place of employment was B & W Plumbing in Indianapolis, for approximately 15 years.
Raymond is survived by his wife of 40 years, Julie Warlow-McClanahan; three children from a previous marriage, Billy McClanahan, Raymond McClanahan Jr., and Rebecca McClanahan; sister, June Dunham (William Dunham Sr.); brother, John McClanahan; nephew, William Dunham Jr.; and nieces, Dawn Pritchett and Kathy Jo Holloman.
Raymond was a very happy, carefree person who absolutely loved life. He took in the homeless and would give the shirt off his back to help out the less fortunate. He had a passion for dogs and always took in strays and gave them a home.
As requested by Raymond, there will be no showing or funeral service.
Rest in peace. You will be sadly missed, but never forgotten!
