Robert "Bob" "Tut" Hohn

Robert “Bob” “Tut” Hohn, 92, of Bentleyville, died on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at The Residence at Hilltop, Carroll Township. Born on May 2, 1925, in Wheeling, W.Va., he was the son of Robert and Mary Eimer Hohn. Bob was a member of the Christian Assembly of God Church Bentleyville, the Bentleyville American Legion Post No.165 and the United Mine Workers Union No.1197. He was a World War II Navy veteran and was the tail gunner on the USS Benham destroyer in the Pacific.

He retired in 1986 from the former Beth Energy Mine No. 51 in Ellsworth. He began working for the Leonard M. Pavlic Funeral Homes, Inc., from its beginning in 1963 until 2007. Bob loved fishing whether it be on the banks of the Monongahela river or the deep seas off the islands. He always had a smile, a “Hi! How are you?” and a piece of candy for everyone he encountered. Bob knew everyone and everyone knew Bob Hohn. He will be greatly missed by all.

Bob is survived by his wife of 69 years, Frances Pigeon Hohn; two sons, Jeffrey (Lisa) Hohn of Scenery Hill, and David Hohn of Bentleyville; three grandchildren, Derek (Amanda) Hohn, Michael Hohn and Maura Hohn; a brother, Kenneth Hohn of Coudersport, Pa.; and a sister, Rita Popovich of Library; also several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son, Kenneth Hohn; three brothers, Fred Eimer, Raymond and Ralph Hohn; and a sister, Dorothy Robaugh.

 Visitation will be held 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at LEONARD M. PAVLIC FUNERAL HOMES, INC., 405 Main St., Bentleyville. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, May 25, at the Christian Assembly of God Church, Bentleyville with the Rev. Paul Peternel presiding. Interment will follow at Beallsville Cemetery. The family requests in lieu of flowers that memorials be made to the Christian Assembly of God Church.


Condolence to the family and friends, Bob will be missed. Happy I got time to spend with him when I was home. With Evelyn with me we had a nice visit.

Jeff, You have my heartfelt sympathy for your loss.... I know your pain as I lost my Father a few years ago and I still miss him terribly.... Anything I can do to help you through this, please call...

Mrs. Hohn, I'm so very sorry to read about your dear husband. Daniel called from Germany to tell me he had seen the obituary and I'm very sad that I cannot be there in person. I loved Mr. Hohn for his humor and kindness all through the years as we grew up and more recently for both his and your care and concern for my mom. So often when I think of Mom, I usually think of both you and Mr. Hohn. Though your heart must be heavy, I imagine that Heaven is rejoicing to have him home! You are in my prayers.
Jeff & David, I'm sorry that you have lost your dad. He was a wonderful man.

So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a rock when Freddie was Ill and I never forgot that. A man of faith and kind spirit. My deepest sympathy.

Always positive and never a negative word.... Uncle Bob always shared his Werthers Coffee Caramels with me in church. They were as sweet as he

I was so taken aback when I read this obituary today. I don't believe I ever knew a nicer or happier person that Bob Hohn. I was the Monday Meals-on -Wheels delivery person and when he no longer was at home, not a Monday passed that I did not miss seeing his smiling face and think of him saying "Be careful.". Rest in Peace , and my deepest condolences to his family.

Fran, Jeff and David, We are so sorry to learn of Bob's passing! If there is a friendlier, kinder, tender-hearted person who loves Jesus more, I can't imagine who it is. Ken has always told me that Bob is his hero!!! We will always have the best memories of him. We will not be able to attend his service this week as we are in Hatteras, NC, but please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. You have a wonderful family and will always be loved!

Ken and Vernie Jackson Bentleyville, PA May 22 2017 12:00 AM

You have our deepest sympathies. Bob was such a kind individual. He and my dad (Joe Rodacay) were very close and every time I saw Bob, he always mentioned my dad and how my dad used to put his cold hands on Bob's neck. Bob loved this story and always spoke very highly of my dad. I know that my dad felt the same about Bob. Please know that Bob and the entire Hohn family are in our daily prayers.

Mary, David and Courtney Saniga
