Obituary for Thomas Roy Mohr
Thomas Roy Mohr, 70, passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack in his home on April 15, 2018. He was born in Oak Park, IL to Howard and Ruth (Sanderson) Mohr. He married his wife Christine (Kent) on November 1, 1975 in Fontana, WI. Tom grew up in Forest Park, IL and spent his summers on Delavan Lake, WI. His love for the lake made for an easy decision to move to the lake permanently. Tom and Chris enjoyed many adventures together and there was never a dull moment with Tom. He was forever a kid at heart telling stories and jokes. Tom and Chris owned and operated Mohr of the Wagon Wheel in the late 70's and early 80's and Mohr Pier Service for 32 years. He has since been enjoying retirement for the last six years. Tom enjoyed and was proud of being a husband to his wife Chris, a dad to his children Tom (Sylvia) Gottschalk of Darien, Amy (Marcus) Hackney of Ft. Wayne, IN and Abbie Mohr of Delavan and his greatest joy was being a grandpa to his 5 grandchildren, Holly and Eric Mohr, Izabel Gottschalk and Brooklyn and Cole Hackney. Tom also enjoyed driving around town, visiting with friends and sharing his passion for old cars and car shows. Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Tom is survived by his wife, Christine Mohr of Delavan. His children, Tom (Sylvia) Gottschalk of Darien, Amy (Marcus) Hackney of Ft. Wayne, IN and Abbie Mohr of Delavan, his grandchildren Holly and Eric Mohr, Izabel Gottschalk and Brooklyn and Cole Hackney, his brother Mike (Maureen) Mohr of Chicago, IL and his Mother in Law Jane Kent of Walworth.
Tom is preceded in death by his parents, Howard Mohr and Ruth Mohr, his sister Patti Basso and his Father in Law Gordon Kent.
