William Bruce McClure 1945 - 2023


William (Bill) McClure passed away on Saturday October 28, 2023, in Naples, Florida after a brief illness.

Bill was born in Rockford Illinois on June 1, 1945, to Charles Adam McClure and Linda Falk. He grew up on 24th Street in Rockford. From the beginning, he loved school and learning. Bill graduated from Rockford East High School in 1963 where he earned a debate scholarship for college. He attended Northwestern University and received a Bachelor Degree in English Literature. Next, he studied law at the University of Illinois and earned a Law Degree in 1971. His studies were briefly interrupted when he joined the Army Reserves and married Carma Bordonaro, his high-school sweetheart, in 1968. Finally, he received an MBA from the University of Chicago in 1974.

Bill and Carma, both lovers of the big city, settled in Chicago where he established his own law practice. Also, Bill was president of Extended Intelligence, a computer software company that provided seminars and training for companies and governments across the US and the World. In 2015, Bill and Carma moved from the Chicago area to Naples, Florida to find better weather and a new adventure. He never looked back.

Bill was an intelligent, accomplished man who always seemed to succeed with every challenge presented to him. But above all, Bill was truly a kind and giving person. He never hesitated to give advice and help when called upon by. For family and friends, he was always there. Everyone loved and trusted him. But also, they liked him and enjoyed his company.

Bill is survived by his wife Carma McClure, his niece Kathleen Macias, and his nephews Scott Wells, Mike Wells, Charles McClure, David McClure, and Patrick McClure. He will be remembered and missed.
