Obituary for Michael Ellsworth McCrory

Michael Ellsworth McCrory passed away peacefully to be with God on the 29th of May, 2018. Mike was born on February 11, 1939 in Houston, Texas to Edwin and Helen McCrory.

He attended St. Thomas High School where he graduated in 1957. He continued his education at The University of Texas where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and received his undergraduate degree in 1961. Subsequently, Mike received his law degree from The University of Houston in 1964. He began practicing law in Houston, and was a partner with Woodard, Hall, McCrory, Henry & Primm.

Later in life, Mike moved to Sargent, Matagorda County, Texas with his wife Sandy to live on the water. There he practiced law and enjoyed his passions of hunting and saltwater fishing. Mike loved the outdoors and had a fearless sense of adventure. He once braved alligator infested waters to retrieve two baby alligators from a nest for the delight of his children. As a fan of old country music, Mike loved to play guitar and sing old country songs. He loved dogs, especially Labrador retrievers, and was a member of the Lone Star Retriever Club. He was also a member of Ducks Unlimited and a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Mike had an infectious and outgoing personality, and his great sense of humor won him many friends over the years. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Sandy McCrory; and his brother-in-law, Neil Hanson. He is survived by his son, John McCrory and wife Christi; daughter, Kelley Johnson and husband Rod; step-daughters, Kim Rollins and husband John, and Kelly Ann Pate. He was the proud grandfather of Ellie and Grace Johnson, and the step-grandfather of John Michael Rollins. He is also survived by his brother, Don McCrory and wife Pat; sister, Barbara Hanson; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family wishes to have a private ceremony. For those desiring, memorial contributions may be made to the Houston and Southeast Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, 6055 South Loop East, Houston, TX 77087.
