Mickey McClureThe City of Bullhead City was notified today that Council member John “Mickey” McClure passed away due to complications from lung cancer. “As a City, we are filled with sadness and tremendous pain,” Mayor Tom Brady said. “We will miss Mickey’s friendship, but we will always remember his remarkable contributions to our city. We extend our love and sympathy to his wife Cyndie and to all of Mickey’s family and friends.” Mickey was re-elected to the City Council in 2014 to a four-year term. He also served on the City Council from 2009-2013. Before moving to Bullhead City, he also served on the Rialto, Calif., City Council. “Mickey was a great Councilman, but even more so, he was a great citizen who cared deeply about seniors, veterans and the youth of Bullhead City,” City Manager Toby Cotter said. “He will be sorely missed for his many contributions to our community.” Cotter said McClure was actively involved in local Veteran causes, the Elks organization and numerous other civic organizations. “Just recently, Mickey helped raise thousands of dollars for veterans through the holiday wreath program,” Cotter stated. “He was a force behind the development of the Veteran’s Memorial Park. He took so much pride in the development of the amenities within the park.”
