Clifford Dahl, 89 of Cooperstown, ND died Tuesday, September 22, 2009 in his home in Cooperstown, ND.

Clifford Leland Dahl was born on June 11, 1920 to John and Anna (Pearson) Dahl on a rural farm near Cooperstown. He attended Ayrea School in Washburn Township and High School in Cooperstown.

Clifford married Frances Bata on November 25, 1953 at St. Johns Chapel in Kensal, ND. As a young adult he traveled to Portland, Oregon where he worked in the shipyards for two years. Upon his return, he resumed farming and worked for the US Bureau of Animal Industries during the winters of 1947 and 1948. He farmed for over 40 years in Washburn Township until he retired in 1982. Clifford and his four sons built a new house in Cooperstown where he and Frances retired. His farm operation primarily consisted of small gains and row crop production.
