Fred Bohn loved the strength of waterfalls, and big trees. The bigger the better. Playing among the Giant Redwoods was one of his most memorable experiences. He loved his horses, riding and driving, and loved introducing people to them.
He loved building things and working hard every day. He once built a 350 ft. boardwalk along the stream behind our house. If Fred built it, it was meant to last. Fred was very proud of his country and his military service in the Marines. He was also honored to be a lifetime 4th Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus.
After Fred left the Marines, he became an electrician and worked at Kennedy Airport where he actually chatted with Neil Armstrong, while Neil waited for a flight! He also worked for the Town of Hempstead, New York. He loved ferris wheels and fresh air.
No one can deny his love for his 1960 Massey Ferguson tractor. The funniest was when he replaced the levers with golf clubs to maximize his control.
Fred was born in St. Albans, Queens County, New York. His parents Adelaide and Fred Bohn, his brothers and sisters, Sr. Adelaide Stevens, (Loretta), Richie, Suzie, and Stevie are waiting for him. Fred has left behind his wife Kim, and two sons Fred Bohn and his family Sylvia, Freddy and Kaitlin, and Matthew Bohn. Fred was God-father to Mickey Bohn. He will be sadly missed by his in-laws Kathi and Ed Chaszczewski and Kara and Mike Merendo, as well as all his nieces and nephews.
He didnít want to leave us, but our merciful God had a plan. The family would love to thank the kindness of neighbors and friends, and the members of the Green Hill Presbyterian Church and Rev. Cook, dear friends at Bojangles and Brother Joe Elliott, for all their love and support. Thanks to St. Thomas Hospital for their loving care of Fred.
