Austin Lee “Dinky” McClain, 64, of Shelbyville, passed away in the comfort of his home on Friday, August 5, 2022.

Celebration of Life Services will be determined and announced at a later date.

Born in Bonne Terre, Missouri, on January 3, 1958, Dinky devoted his life to being a loving son, brother and father, who adored his daughter. A one-of-a-kind, simple man, who preferred just being at home gardening, Dinky always enjoyed making others smile. In his spare time, he loved going fishing and hunting. Dinky left everyone he loved with lots of smiles and good memories. He will sorely be missed. Fly High!

Preceding him in death was his girlfriend of six years, Eunice Gately; stepmother, Delores McClain; and two sisters, Katheryn Marler and Peggy Roach.

Survivors include his father, Austin G. McClain; mother, Mary (Dave) Reinbold; one daughter, Amanda Leigh (Evelyn Edwards) McClain; two brothers, Willie House and Johnny Barton; two sisters, Pam Ellis and Susie Schneider; one grandson, “A.J.”; best friends, Cindi McClain and James Council; two beloved dogs, Curly and Rocky; and many more relatives and friends.

Many thanks and regards to Compassus Hospice-Tullahoma and caregivers, Jessica Green and Leah Baxter.
