Jack Mahand

Jack “Dad” Defaniel Mahand, 94, of Lone Oak passed away May 21, 2013, peacefully at Hunt County Regional Hospital.

The son of Walter Defaniel and Francis Emma (Bruce) Mahand, he was born Aug. 14, 1918. He was a graduate of Emory High School where he met Glenna Aileen Johnston whom he married on Nov. 29, 1939.

He was an accomplished diesel engine mechanic, inventing several offshore and onshore equipment and engine-related applications, five of which were formally patented. He was a longtime employee of Pure Oil Company, Stewart and Stevenson and Southeastern Drilling Company.

 He later became the owner of the GMC Truck Dealership and a trucking operation in Sulphur Springs.

Finally, after retiring, he was the first to design and successfully install a diesel engine in a personal-sized pickup, several years before the major auto manufacturers began.

He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Jackie and Pat Mahand of College Station, Rosa Mahand of Kingwood, Larry and Pam Mahand of Sulphur Springs, Michael and Leta Mahand of Sulphur Springs, and Scott and Phyllis Mahand of Lone Oak; 12 grandchildren, Christy Hansen, Cathey Morgan, Bronson Mahand, Brandon Mahand, Barrett Mahand, Chad Mahand, Jake Mahand, Mandy Mahand, Kara Argenbright, Katie Mahand, Kelli Mahand, and Clint Mahand; eight great-grandchildren, Caili Morgan, Kyle Morgan, Blakely Mahand, Zack Mahand, Wesley Mahand, Brady Mahand, Kaden Argenbright, and Corbin Argenbright; and his sister, Olivia Manning of Campbell.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Glenna; son Kenneth Mahand and his parents.

Visitation will be from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Friday at Lynch Funeral Service and followed by a graveside service at 3 p.m. at Prairie Valley Cemetery.
