Alan Roger Kohn, 87, of Clarks Summit, formerly of Woodbridge, N.J., passed away on Jan. 6, 2019, at Allied Skilled Nursing Facility.

Born on May 27, 1931, in New York City, he was the son of the late David Kohn and Gertrude Heimlich Kohn. He was preceded in death by his devoted wife of 59 years, Phyllis. He is survived by sons, Ira Kohn and wife, Alice, of Waverly; and Mark Kohn.

A United States Army veteran of the Korean War, he thereafter graduated from City College of New York and then matriculated to Case Western Reserve University, earning a master of social work degree. Professionally, he was committed to improving the lives of the vulnerable, especially children, most recently for the Division of Youth & Family Services of N.J. prior to retirement.

He enjoyed world travel, was an avid patron of the theater and an ardent New York sports fan. He was especially proud of the achievements of his grandchildren, Danielle and Jason, in whom he tried to instill his passion for reading.

On behalf of Alan, the family wish to express their extreme gratitude and respect for the staffs at Oakwood Terrace and Allied Services SNF, as well as Dr. Tom Minora, for their outstanding care and support.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. today at Beth Israel Cemetery in Woodbridge, N.J.

The arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Morell-LaBelle Funeral Home, Dunmore, Pa.
