President Buryl Gene McClurg

On September 12th, 2009, President Buryl Gene McClurg, a man intertwined with the history of the LDS Church in Nashville, Tennessee, passed away at the age of 79. President McClurg was born in Arkansas, graduated from BYU, and made Nashville his home. In Tennessee owned a small construction company. He has served as a bishop where he helped his ward endure tornados. He was later stake president, and then the first President of the Nashville Temple, and was released four years later in 2004. President McClurg's passing was also noted in the Church News. Though I never had a chance to meet him, I am grateful for his contribution to building up the Church in Tennessee.
