Henry L.
Henry L. "Sonny" Bohman, 78, of Enochsburg, died Thursday, June 9, 2016, at his residence. Born Feb. 25, 1938, in Batesville, he was the son of Otilla (Messingschlager) and Lawrence Bohman.
He married Darlene Feller July 2, 1966, at St. Anthony's Church in Morris, and she survives. The couple would have celebrated their 50th anniversary next month. Sonny worked as a shipping clerk and assistant foreman 38 years at Batesville Casket Company before retiring in 2001 and was a lifelong farmer.
Sonny spent his entire life on the family farm he dearly loved. His family teased that he was very particular about how he did things around the farm and would let you know if you weren't doing it right. He was also an avid card player. Canasta and 500 were his favorite games in addition to playing a little solo. Sonny was serious about playing cards and idle chatter wasn't necessary.
Other interests included fishing, squirrel hunting, following the Colts, Gardening and riding his four wheeler through the woods. After retiring from Batesville Casket, Sonny took up woodworking and according to the family, if you're in need of a bird house, you may want to talk to them. He and Darlene enjoyed traveling out west over the years as well as taking several trips to Branson, Missouri. His grandchildren, though, were his pride and joy. He delighted in attending all of their activities and sporting events.
Sonny is survived by his wife, Darlene; daughter, Sharon Miller of Batesville; son, Jeff (Teresa) Bohman of Batesville and grandchildren Elizabeth and Matthew Miller and Brad and Katie Bohman.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Visitation is from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 12 at Weigel Funeral Home in Batesville. Funeral services begin at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 13 at St. Catherine's of Sienna at Enochsburg with Rev. Bill Ehalt officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
The family requests memorials to Margaret Mary Health Foundation Hospice (https://www.mmhealth.org/donate.html) or St. Catherine's of Sienna Building Fund.
