Charles “Pat” Clahan, 64, of Russellville passed away Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020, at home, while surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Jan.13, 1956, at Crawfordsville, to the late Paul David and Frankie June (McMasters) Clahan.

Pat attended South Montgomery High School and on July 17, 1976, he married the love of his life, Rebecca Jane Boller. Throughout the years he worked at Mid States Steel & Wire in Crawfordsville for over 20 years and after retiring he started his own businesses, C&H Dirt Work, the C&H Pallett Company, and even got into the honey bee business. He loved the outdoors and mowed for the town of Russellville and two local cemeteries. He loved fishing and loved it so much he always wanted to become a professional fisherman.
