Skip MacLure 1944 - 2013



















It is with deepest sadness that I have to announce that Skip MacLure passed away in the early hours of February 5th, 2013. Skip had just celebrated his 69th birthday on February 4th.

Although I knew Skip for only seven years, he became the closest friend that I have ever had the privilege to know. While it is difficult to come to terms with this loss, I feel honored to have known him for what was, unfortunately, far too short a time.

Skip was, unabashedly, a true conservative. Plain-spoken, he was not afraid to take anyone to task, regardless of party affiliation. He believed that the Constitution was the greatest legal document ever written, a gift from God to the people of the finest country in the world.

Skip was often attacked by the liberal left for his honest remarks. Although he shrugged off what were often cruel, personally offensive remarks, I felt hurt by them... for I knew the sort of person that Skip really was. Much of it was standard leftist rhetoric, but it still smarted. If they knew Skip's family and friends, for example, they would see that he was anything but racist. Having been brought up by his Italian grandparents, he endured the taunts of neighborhood children who called him "the little blue-eyed wop kid". It served to toughen him up for the future.

I could go on further, but this is not to be a biography, but an invitation to his friends and readers to salute a true patriot and a great American.

I have agreed with Skip's family that his website, skipmaclure.us, continue... alas without new articles from the man himself. I know that Skip would want me to continue what he started, and for the site to stay true to his beliefs.
Semper fi, Skip.
