Family and friends are mouring the loss of a student at Westminster Christian Academy.
17-year old John McClerren died in an accident on Keifer Creek and Reitzkee Roads in St. Louis County Friday (05-31-02) night. He was celebrating with friends on their first offical night as Seniors following their school’s graduation ceremony when the accident happened.
McClerren was outside his truck when it began to roll down an embankment. He tried to jump into it to stop it. He was found pinned to a tree on the driver’s side of the vehicle. John’s friends and family remember him as a happy-go lucky guy and a model student devoted to his family and his faith.
John’s father Denny McClerren hopes that the life his son led will be an example to everyone. He describes John as a man of God who was unshakeable, confident, caring, compassionate and full of life with a great personality.
Denny and his wife, Debbie have not yet made funeral arrangements, but say services are likely to be at First Baptist Church in Ferguson on Monday or Tuesday.
(Jon has an older brother, Eric, and a younger sister, Holly. Jon was actively involved with the Youth group at FBCF, and participated in a small group Bible Study with Andrew.)
