He was born Aug, 17, 1943, in Evanston, Illinois, to E.H. and Loretta Hohmann. After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, where, at the Pentagon, he met his sweetheart and eternal companion, Sharon Allred. They were married April 20, 1963. Shortly after, he was deployed to Vietnam, where he served one tour of duty as an air traffic controller.
Upon his return home to the states, he joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Upon leaving military service, he moved his family to Utah where he applied the training he received in the military, and at college, in the civilian sector, eventually becoming an electrical engineer — a successful career that he enjoyed for 45 years.
He enjoyed golfing, going to the races, spending time with his family and traveling. He also loved serving in multiple church callings, especially those involving youth and children.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife Sharon; sister Barb (Al) Bender; brother Richard; children Tracy (Ron) Crane, David (Stephanie), Scott (Shellie) and Troy (Dori) Hohmann. He is also survived by numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
