Carl Leon Hamand, age 86 of Clinton, and formerly of Cayuga, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 while at his daughter's house surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Danville, Illinois on February 4, 1938 to the late Earl & Mary (Eller) Hamand.

Carl graduated from Cayuga High School in 1957 and proudly served his country in the United States Army in Germany from 1961-1963.
