March 21, 1933 - October 1, 2021
Clifford Lamar Hanan, of Hughes Springs, TX and formerly of Terrell, passed away peacefully on Oct. 1, 2021 in Longview. He was born March 21, 1933 in Enid, OK to Lawrence “Doc” and Cleta Hanan, both of whom met him in Heaven along with his daughter, Karen Kay Hanan Wood and his grandson, Jason Wood. Cliff was a proud veteran having served in the US Air Force attaining the rank of SSgt before his honorable discharge. On May 15, 1954, he marred his best friend and soul mate, Mattie Lois Johnson, in Grand Prairie and together they raised a beautiful family with love and encouragement. They moved to Terrell in 1963 where they were active members of First Christian Church and had many friends in the community. Cliff worked with Ford Motor Co. and the Dallas Morning News where his reputation for hard work and getting tasks done set him apart as an asset to both companies. Upon retirement, he and Mattie moved to the “country” to Hughes Springs where they continued to enjoy spending time together and Cliff could hunt, fish and go camping to his heart’s content. Being a skilled machinist in his professional life enabled him to continue to ‘tinker’ around the homeplace and he spent many happy hours building and rebuilding various projects. Cliff was a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather and cherished friend whose memory will be treasured by all who loved him. He is survived by his wife, Mattie Lois Hanan of Hughes Springs; children: Debbie White and husband, Clifton, of Lone Star, TX, Cliff Hanan and wife, Susan, of Terrell, TX, and Terri Taylor and husband, George, of Terrell, TX; grandchildren: Clint, Clay, and Kevin White, Chris and Matt Hanan, Chad and Kari Wood and Kyle Phillips as well as several great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and a host of friends, all of whom will miss Cliff very much. Graveside service will be 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at College Mound Cemetery. For those wishing, memorials in honor of Cliff may be made to: College Mound Cemetery Association, PO Box 105, Terrell, 76160.
