Clifford was the cherished son of Ben and Maude (Moore) Mahan. He proudly served our country in the National Guard after graduating high school from Weleetka.

On December 4, 1959, Clifford married the love of his life, Dolores Johnson, in a ceremony held in Okemah, Oklahoma.

In addition to his dedication to family and career, Clifford had a passion for life. He loved all sports, with a special place in his heart for fishing any lake he could find. Clifford found joy in the great outdoors through his love for hunting, golfing, and spending time in nature.
