Fred W. Bohn

2/5/2021

Fred W. Bohn, a longtime resident of Warwick, NY, passed away on February 5, 2021 at home with his loving family by his side. He was 72 years old.

 

Born in Scranton PA, on March 3, 1948, he was the son of Carl and Mabel (McGarry) Bohn.

 

Fred was a well-loved nuclear medicine technologist at St. Anthony Community Hospital for over 50 years.  He considered his co-workers – as well as his many repeat patients over the years – his extended family.

 

A tribute from Lady to Tinman: 

Lovingly known as “Tinman,” Fred had more heart than anyone I know. His gentility and quiet strength at times went unnoticed because of his cool, quiet presence. A man who never “blew his own horn,” he had a following of patients who never forgot his kindness and steadfast demeanor, which calmed even the most frightened of Octogenarians. I called them the “The Eighties Ladies” and they frequently prolonged our grocery trips. He always kept his priorities straight, and knew family was the all-important measure of success and a “good man.”  I always knew I was loved, and I always knew he loved his St. Anthony’s Family, his Harley, “Baby,” strumming his Fender, and trying to beat the slots and PS4 game challenges.  I was blessed with over 33 years of a respectful partnership; we made each other better and we shared road adventures beyond compare. We enjoyed a beautiful, long dance and always knew we had it all. Until our next Harley ride or Lindy—"We—‘as endless as the sea.’”

 

Fred is survived by his wife, Nancy Miller-Bohn; daughters, Sherri Terracino and her husband Terry of Middletown, NY; Michelle Bohn and her partner Tom O’Neill of Los Angeles, CA; stepdaughter, Lauren Daley and her husband Will of Napa, CA; and stepson, Daniel Miller and his wife Heather of Valhalla, NY; eight beloved grandchildren: Brandon, Brooke, Rachel, Liam, Brennecke, Hailee, Harper and Jake; sister, Karen Morgan, and her husband Rick of Moscow, PA; and many nieces and nephews.

 

The family will receive friends on Monday, February 8, 2021 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 17 Oakland Avenue, Warwick.

 

In lieu of flowers, you may honor Fred’s memory by making a donation of any size to St. Jude’s Childrens' Hospital, United Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties, Inc., or FeedingAmerica.org, or by simply being kind to a pet.

Nancy, I am so heartily sorry for you and your family’s loss. I just learned of Fred’s passing. I am just stunned and shocked. Fred was always good to me when I had to go for all my numerous x-rays. We always had a good laugh and talked about the “good old days “. I will always remember him fondly.(You too and how good and kind you were to me when I became a staff RN at SACH.) I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.❤️❤️🙏🙏Love, Eileen Simpson Frey
