Alfred Horst Domjahn, resident of Willis, Texas (and former resident of Germany and Virginia) passed away on Wednesday, February 28th at his home at the age of 59. He was a loving husband and father who enjoyed his work and his hobbies. He was born in Saarbrüken, Germany on February 26th, 1959 to Harald and Katharina Stehlin. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 16 years, Sharon Domjahn; daughter, Marit Domjahn and her wife, Hailey Rogers, of Abingdon, Virginia; daughter, Briyana Domjahn of Chicago, Illinois; step-daughter, Laura Cyphers and her partner Vanessa Fletcher of Bristol, Tennessee; his father, Harald Stehlin of Riegelsberg, Germany; former wife and loving mother to his daughters, Betty Domjahn, of Castlewood, VA. His beloved miniature schnauzers, Sadie and Hobie, have also been his loyal and loving companions and will miss him terribly. He began his graduate degree in mining engineering at the Techniche Universität Clausthal, Germany, finishing in Boulder, Colorado at the Colorado School of Mines. Alfred served as a volunteer firefighter for 14 years in both Germany and Golden, Colorado. He and his father shared a special connection when they began an extensive and impressive firefighting collection of helmets, badges, and patches that has grown over the past 40 years. Alfred was raised near railroad tracks and, therefore, developed a love for all things train-related, especially steam engines. In addition to his firefighting collection, he collected N scale trains, building several models over the years. He was a proud member of the fraternity Hercynia and, in true Texas style, a member of the National Rifle Association. He worked as a mining engineer for Thyssen Schachtbau in Germany, becoming President of Betty B. Coal Company in Coeburn, VA, and, finally, becoming Division Head for Schoeller-Bleckmann America in Houston, TX. Alfred is preceded in death by his mother Katharina Stehlin of Germany, good friends Francisco Serrano of France, and Hoppy Turner of West Virginia. Memorial services will be held on Sunday, March 4th at 11 A.M. at Cashner Funeral Home (801 Teas Rd, Conroe, TX, 77303).Services will be led by close friends, Bill Bailey and Steve McGowen. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial funds be donated to the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston (www.msrh.org) or to MD Anderson Cancer Center at P.O. Box 4464 Houston, TX 77210. The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Harbor Hospice, especially to Rhonda and Beck; the incredibly supporting and kind employees of Schoeller-Bleckmann; and the dedicated and amazing staff of MD Anderson, with special thanks to Dr. Kelly Hunt MD and the Sarcoma Center.
