Obituary

On Thursday, August 20, 2020, Sgt. Walter Alexander McClendon, Jr., U.S. Army National Guard Ret., our loving brother, compassionately called Mac by friends, Alex by others, but just Walter by the family, was called home at age 56. 

Walter was born on October 3, 1963, in St. Augustine, Florida, to Walter Alexander McClendon, Sr. and Thelma R. McClendon. He graduated from St. Augustine High School in 1983 and joined the Army National Guard of Florida in 1986, where he served twenty-seven years and retired in May 2013 at Camp Blanding Joint Training Center. His last work assignment was as a Maintenance Mechanic for the state of Florida, where he enjoyed working with a group of guys he considered and called his brothers. Although he never married or fathered children, his nieces, nephews, and friends’ children were like his own. 

Walter had a passion for helping others and was a dedicated benevolent soul to all that needed him. He particularly enjoyed sharing his carpentry and mechanic skills and knowledge. He spent numerous weekends grilling with friends and enjoying their passion for remote control vehicles; he was an avid Florida State and Cowboy Football Fan and missed very few games. He was always there for his brothers and sisters to support them with tough love or to correct them with an infectious laugh, which made you laugh too. He will be missed intensely.


Walter was preceded in death by his father, Walter Sr., and his mother, Thelma. He is survived by his siblings, Natalie Wilcox, Andre McClendon, Marilyn McClendon, Endolyn Austin-Brooks, James McClendon, and several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

The funeral service for Walter Alexander McClendon, Jr. will be held at 11:00 am Friday, September 4th, 2020 at the Funerals by T.S. Warden - Samuel C. Rogers, Jr. Memorial Chapel 4315 N Main St Jacksonville, FL 32206. The visitation will be 5:00 - 7:00 pm, Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 at the Funerals by T.S. Warden 4315 North Main Street Jacksonville, FL 32206. Interment in Jacksonville National Cemetery. Please sign the family guest book and view the video tribute @ www.tswarden.com. Arrangements in care of Tyrone S. Warden, FDIC, 4315 N. Main Street, 765-1234

Dear family, please find solace in knowing that I share your sorrows in the loss of Walter. Even though it has been many years since I saw him, his warmth and kindness, that we shared as neighbors, has always remained. It is my sincerest prayer that the Lord will strengthen your hearts, and flood your souls with the beautiful memories, that death can not take away.
