Frank E. Mahan, age 91, passed away peacefully on Tuesday afternoon, June 27, 2023 at his home in Morgan County.
Frank was born October 1, 1931 in Highland Park, Michigan to his parents, the late Charles Haston and Lillian Florence (Crawford) Mahan. Frank’s family moved several times when he was younger and after living in Michigan, Tennessee, Mississippi and New York, he moved again at the age of 16 and called Indiana home. He proudly served his country with the United States Army during the Korean War. After serving his country, he married Shirley A. Miller on July 30, 1955 in Royal Oak, Michigan and together they were blessed with three sons Mark, Vance and Randy. She preceded him in death in 2016 after 61 devoted years of marriage.
Frank retired from General Motors on his birthday in 1985 after serving over 30 years as a Tool & Die Maker in Indianapolis. He belonged to the York Street Church of Christ in Martinsville. He enjoyed restoring antique cars, reading Civil War History and spending time with his blue tick beagle, Rocky and beagle Missy. He was a man of many talents and along with being a car mechanic, he also enjoyed building homes. Frank enjoyed spending time in the outdoors by traveling with his wife, Shirley, growing blueberries, hunting rabbit and deer as well as fishing near the Cumberland River in Tennessee. He will be remembered most for his love of family and his ability to never meet a stranger.
