A graduate of Clarion Area High School, Claude served his country as a member of the United States Army, receiving an honorable discharge in 1961.

On June 5, 1965, he married the former Virginia L. “Ginny” Raybuck.

Together, they celebrated more than 53 years of marriage.

They enjoyed walking together, rock ‘n roll music, and dancing.

In addition to his wife, Claude is survived by his son, Jeffrey A. Mohney and his significant friend, Laura Jamison, of Foxburg.

He is also survived by his two nieces, Marilyn Smith and Valerie Means and their families, along with a large extended family.

He was also an Elder of the First Presbyterian Church of Clarion and a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles Aerie 3807 in Clarion. He enjoyed playing Texas Hold ‘Em poker and just about any other card game, going for a good walk or swimming, and dancing with Ginny.
