Clarence McCollum Obituary, Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation Mourns Clarence McCollum Death
Clarence McCollum Obituary, Death – The passing away of Clarence C. (Chris) McCollum ’69, who was also a coach at Brooklyn Tech and a graduate of the institution, occurred not too long ago. In addition, he was a teacher at Brooklyn Tech. We are forced to tell you the sad news about his passing, and it is with a heavy heart that we do so. Since taking over as the head coach of both the Tech table tennis program and team in 2014, Coach McCollum has consistently showed an extraordinary level of dedication to the growth of both the program and the squad. Because he focused all of his time and effort on becoming an expert in the sport, he was able to earn his level 2 coaching certification.
As a result of his efforts, the sport is now in good hands. The results of his coaching career speak for themselves: a 58-8 record and three consecutive titles as city champions — a legacy that he ensured would be maintained on in 2022. His career as a coach came to an end in 2022. He resigned from his role as coach in 2021, but he remained a regular presence at the team’s workouts and was there when they took the banner marking their fourth consecutive triumph in the city championship back to their house.
Clarence, who was a professor of both domestic and development planning as well as electrical engineering, went all out for the prom that was thrown in his honor each and every year. He completed his getup with a top hat and a coat that had tails attached to it. Because of his efforts as a teacher and coach, he earned a great lot of respect and adoration from his students and players.
His pupils and players will always be thankful for the opportunity they had to spend time with Mr. McCollum, and they will never forget the time they were able to spend with him. As soon as all of the kinks in the plans have been worked out, we are going to make an announcement about what we have in store. Coach, I hope and pray that peace and quiet will finally find their way to you.
