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 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.
