Greg McClain Obituary

Greg McClain, 63, of Champaign died Friday, March 22, 2024, at home. Greg was born May 21, 1960, to Carolyn (Reynolds) and Bob McClain in Champaign. He married Barbara Allan June 30, 2012.

Greg graduated from Champaign Central High School in May of 1978. He worked for 33 years for Patterson Dental Corporation and held multiple positions with the company. He started out as a press operator and eventually became manager of that same department. The last years of his career at Patterson were spent in the maintenance department keeping various pieces of equipment running for production. After Patterson Dental closed, Greg worked for Menasha performing maintenance on equipment before retiring in July of 2022.

Greg loved boating, camping, and all forms of auto racing – especially dirt track sprint car racing. He also loved the Freedom Celebration every 4th of July and never missed the fireworks display. Greg was also never far from his family and friends, often spending time together and celebrating life.

Greg was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, mother, aunts, and uncle.

He is survived by his wife, Barb of Champaign, father, Bob of Saint Joseph, brother, Mark (Dawn) of Saint Joseph, half-sister, Autumn McClain, stepfather, Curtis Wheat (Casey II), brothers-in-law, John Allan of Berwyn, IL, Joe (Vicky) Allan of Champaign, nephews, Josh (Kris) McClain of Farmer City and their daughter Taylor, Kyle McClain of Saint Joseph and his son Cole, and Andrew Allan of Champaign.
