RB McClung and his mother and father and other family were our next door neighbors (Doc Wicker, son Dalton Wicker) on Walker Ave., Memphis, TN
Elizabeth Wilder was my playmate when I was five years old and I attended RB and Peggy's wedding at Galloway Methodist Church, Memphis. He was a fine young man. It was the first wedding I had ever attended..very beautiful. Mrs. Josie and Mr. Rufus were my babysitters when I was in grade school and my Mom worked. I loved them like grandparents and they treated me as one of their own! I am so sorry to learn of RB's passing,but his wonderful life and accomplishments will bring all of you much comfort. May God continue to bless all.
