John Bohon Obituary
JOHN RUSSELL BOHON

John Russell Bohon was born on November 4, 1941, in Delaplane, Virginia. He was the youngest of 14 children, and passed away on June 6th in San Pedro, California at the age of 74. John proudly served in the U.S Navy for 4 years as part of their Special Invasion Unit on the U.S.S. Essex during the time of the Bay of Pigs. John spent 42 years in the aerospace industry, ending his career at Boeing/Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.. John was a member of the Freemasons and an avid golfer, which led him to meet his wife Barb at the Harbor Golf Course in Wilmington. John loved the ocean and spent many summers traveling with his family to the Isthmus in Catalina. He was a huge Nascar and Washington Redskin fan. John was a charismatic man with brilliant blue eyes, he was a man of few words and a huge heart. He was preceded in death by his parents Archie and Juanita, his late wife Judy, two children Chantele and RussAnn, grandson Blake, and 10 siblings (4 sisters and 6 brothers). He is survived by his wife Barb, 4 grandchildren (Corrine, Ashley, Chrissy, and BJ), his brother Leroy, his two sisters Betty and Joyce, and many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Judes Research Centers, online at: www.stjude.org, in memory of John Bohon. Per John's wishes there will be no memorial.
