News10NBC has learned that Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren's grandfather has passed away Thursday morning.

Cecil McClary suffered a massive stroke on Christmas Eve. 

Mayor Warren wrote on her Facebook page Thursday afternoon saying, "Grandpa said goodbye at around 11:00 a.m. May he rest in peace. Thank you all for your prayers. He was a good man. I want to thank you the staff of URMC, they truly represent the medicine of the highest order. Now it's time to make him proud by carrying on his legacy."

Warren took her Oath of Office at Strong Hospital just after midnight, alongside her grandfather. McClary held the bible Warren used to take her oath. A bible that belonged to her grandmother. 

News10NBC sends our condolences to Lovely Warren and her family during this time.
