Robert N. Bohorad, 75, of Naples, Fla., formerly of Orwigsburg, lost his courageous battle with cancer Thursday.
He was a son of the late James and Goldye Bohorad, Mahanoy City.
He graduated from Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass., cum laude from Princeton University and from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
He joined the law firm in Pottsville founded by his father, then known as Houck, Bohorad and Lipkin, in 1966. He spent his entire career with that firm, which became Lipkin, Marshall, Bohorad & Thornburg, until his retirement several years ago. The focus of his practice was in estates and trusts, elder law and corporate and business law. He was admitted to practice before the various Pennsylvania State courts and the Federal Middle District Court of Pennsylvania.
Bob and his wife, the former Judith Casper, resided in Pottsville and Orwigsburg until relocating to Florida. While in Pottsville, he was a member of the Oheb Zedeck Synagogue and served as an officer and director of many professional, civic and charitable organizations. After retiring from his law practice, he enjoyed traveling, playing golf and spending time with his grandchildren.
Bob and Judith would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 20.
He is survived by his wife, Judith; two sons, James C. Bohorad and his wife, Gina, Pottsville, and Robert C. Bohorad and his wife, Nicole, Vienna, Va.; four grandchildren, Dylan Bohorad, Tasha Bohorad, Alyssa Hager and Bryce Hager; a sister, Judith Kahn, Chevy Chase, Md.; nieces and a nephew.
