MEHOOPANY — Clifton R. Furman, 88, of Mehoopany, died Tuesday Oct. 3, 2017, at The Gardens in Tunkhannock.

He was born in Mehoopany on May 7, 1929, son of the late Hobart and Frances (Krewson) Furman.

He was a member of the Forkston and Mehoopany United Methodist Church, Mehoopany Community Center, Mehoopany Grange, Mehoopany Water Shed, and Union Hill Cemetery Association. He also was a Scout Master and sang with the Endless Mountain Barbershop Quartet. Clifton enjoyed farming on his family farm, and he enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting.

Our family is saddened by his passing as we will miss him dearly. We do find extreme comfort in knowing he was a man of strong faith with a passionate love for Jesus. It is that love that he shared with his family, his friends and his community that made him such a unique man. Because of his faith in something greater than himself or this world, he impacted many. It is that faith that now allows him an eternal place in heaven as a testimony to God's goodness and favor for those who love him and trust in him. Well-done, Dad. Well-done, good and faithful servant!

He was preceded in death by his brother, Pastor Edward Furman, and daughter-in-law Renee Furman.

He is survived by sons Ron and wife, Terry Furman, of Mehoopany, Duane and wife, Kimberly, of York, Jason and wife, Denise, of Indiana, daughter Clifteena and fiancé, Bob Wilson, of Tunkhannock, grandchildren Shawn, Brandy, Serena, Abigail, and eight great-grandchildren.
