Charles “Chuck” Mohr, age 85, our beloved brother and uncle died Thursday, March 4, 2021 at his home in Florida.
He was born on April 14, 1935 in Melmore, Ohio to Richard and Berniece Mohr who preceded him in death along with four sisters; Phyllis Valentine, Deanna Koch, Vivian Weaver, and Mary (Polly) Ritchie. Two sisters, Ruth Christofer and Evelyn (John) Knaup survive him, along with numerous nieces and nephews. He was a member of the Melmore United Methodist Church, and graduated from Eden Local (Melmore) High School in 1953. While attending Melmore High School, he was a member of the County Championship basketball team. He later graduated from Otterbein College of Westerville, Ohio in 1959 with a bachelor’s degree in education. While attending Otterbein, he was also a member and captain of their basketball team. He later earned a master’s degree of education from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio.
Chuck started his career in education as a teacher for 5 years in the mid-Ohio area and enjoyed coaching Junior High basketball. He then became a principal for an additional 26 years after which he retired to his cherished condo on Singer Island, West Palm Beach, Florida. There he spent his days playing (and excelling) in tennis, winning many tournaments and trophies. In the evenings he would be found at one of several special hangouts where everyone knew his name. He also enjoyed hosting and entertaining family and friends that would visit. He additionally spent time at The Villages in Florida. Likewise, he would, from time to time, return to Ohio for school and family reunions, or other events.
