Otto Bohn

December 20, 1940 — January 6, 2021

Otto A. Bohn, age 80, was reunited with the love of his life, Janet Bohn on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Mercy Medical Center in Oshkosh. He was born December 20, 1940 in the Township of Deerfield, the son of Otto and Alvina (Scharf) Bohn. He married the former Janet Brown on June 26, 1961. Janet preceded him in death on May 29, 2009. Otto worked at Speed Queen in Wautoma, Omro and Ripon and retired after 43 years of service. He was a lifelong member of Grace Lutheran Church, Township of Deerfield.

Otto enjoyed spending time with his family, gardening, fishing with his special friend Gary, feeding and watching the birds and also enjoyed his newest friend, “Hey Hey” the neighbor’s chicken that adopted him as his human.

He is survived by his children, Gary Bohn, Wautoma, Debra Davies, Coloma, Kevin (Christine) Bohn, Wautoma; his grandchildren, Cody Davies, Madison, Dalton Bohn, Wautoma, Rebecca Bohn, Wautoma, Tucker Bohn, Wyoming and Emily Bohn, Wautoma. He is further survived by other relatives and friends. In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by his parents and by an infant sister.

The family would like to thank Mercy Medical Center for all the support they gave us during this difficult time and with assisting with FaceTiming those family members that could not be there. A special thank you to Sarah for being there to hold his hand as he passed on, and was not alone. Also, thank you to Leikness Funeral Home for the assistance with the arrangements.
