Rory Dwight McClellan


Rory Dwight McClellan, 65, of Monte Vista, passed away at home on Feb. 10, 2022.

Rory enjoyed the simple things in life. He loved camping, riding horses, hunting, fishing, hot rod cars, snowmobiling, his family, and an occasional beer.

“A person is mortal but love for them has no end. Though a loved one may not be present, he is always in our hearts and minds. Gone but not forgotten, gone but ever here. No longer living in this world, but always and ever near.” — Author unknown.

Rory is survived by his wife, Arnell, his stepdad William “Buck” Cooper, his brothers Charles (Heather) Cooper and Loren McClellan, his children Sonya (Cheb) Yund and Nicholas McClellan, grandchildren Tristan (Jessie) Stevenson and Kendra Yund, and his great-grandchildren Jessica, Rylee, and Gavin.

Rory was preceded in death by his father Arthur “Max” McClellan, his mother Virginia Cooper, his grandparents, and many aunts and uncles.

The family will not be having a memorial service but will have a private family gathering on a later date.

Arrangements in care of Strohmayer’s Funeral Home of Monte Vista.
