"I am excited to create a legacy statue. Gary was a great guy, and he leaves his legacy behind, and I am lucky enough to have this opportunity."

There are just some people in life, that when you meet them, they make a large impact on your life, and help you want to be a much better person. Gary (Mac) is one of those individuals. Big Statues, is honored to have been chosen to be a part of the memorial statue process for this amazing man.

Gary had an idea. Well, it was more of an dream. He enjoyed his job, but it wasn’t quite what he wanted to spend the rest of his life doing. He shared his dream with his wife, and together they worked to make it become a reality. They dreamed of doing something together that would bring their family closer together, and would involved the hard work and dedication of all family members. He shared this dream with his children, and they loved it. With years of hard work, this dream really did become the reality of this hardworking family.

The McClellan family started their own family business. Frankenmuth Fudge is still in business, although the fudge flippin’ patriarch of the family is no longer with them in person. Gary made fudge for 51 years, and was a great example of how determination and dedication can make your dreams come true. He mentored and helped so many people achieve their own goals and dreams, and had so much fun doing all, and in the sweetest way he could. Fudge, chocolates, taffy, buttery brittles, crunchy caramel corn was sent all over the state of Michigan. This guy was so generous, fun, humble, and smart, and Big Statues couldn’t think of a better project to be a part of. Someone so wonderful definitely deserves a statue in his honor.

Matt Glenn at Big Statues is looking forward to what this project can become. "I am excited to create a legacy statue. Gary was a great guy, and he leaves his legacy behind, and I am lucky enough to have this opportunity."

Stay tuned for an amazing statue to be created in Gary’s honor.
