Wayne C. Mohr
Wayne Mohr, age 69, passed away at his Bloomsburg home on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.
Born on November 18, 1951 in Roanoke, Virginia to the late Frederick, Jr. and Lois (Clough) Mohr, Wayne grew up in Connecticut and New York before settling in Keene, New Hampshire, where he met his high school sweetheart and lifelong partner, Kathleen.
He served in the U. S. Army during the Vietnam War before returning home to pursue his education. Wayne received an undergraduate degree from Keene State College and a M. S. degree in communications from Purdue University.
He followed career opportunities around the country before accepting a position at Bloomsburg University. A passionate advocate for higher education, he retired in July as the Associate Vice President of Technology and Library Services after almost 25 years dedicated to the university’s mission.
An athlete since high school, Wayne loved active pursuits, hiking, skiing and playing golf as often as he could. He was an avid reader, photographer, lifelong student of history and supporter of the arts, serving on the board of the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble for a time. A firm believer that life should have a soundtrack, there was not a day in his life that did not include music.
A devoted father to his three children and caring mentor to many, his warmth, humor and generosity will be dearly missed.
Besides his wife Kathleen, Wayne lives his son, Jacob Mohr and his partner Kelsy Zaremski, of Gainesville, Va; his daughters, Jocelyn Kline, and her husband Abram of Raleigh, N. C. and Jordan Mohr of Brooklyn, N. Y.; two grandchildren, Hazel Mae and Miles Jacob Kline; a brother, Frederick C. Mohr, III and his wife Wanda of Keene, N.H.; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by siblings Kathleen Vasko and David Mohr.
A celebration of life will be held in the future when we can gather safely. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish, donations may be made in Wayne’s memory to the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble, 226 Center St., Bloomsburg, or to the Friends of the Bloomsburg University Library Association, Harvey A. Andruss Library, 400 East Second Street, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Dean W. Kriner, Inc., Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 325 Market Street, Bloomsburg.
My sincere condolences to the entire Mohr family, and to his friends. I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Wayne when I first began working at Bloomsburg University approximately 13 years ago. The office provided for the Middle States review process, where I was located, was in Andruss Library's 3rd floor office suite. Wayne and his staff were always so very kind and helpful to me. His friendly smile and brief chats in passing always served to brighten my work days. He was a wonderful, brilliant, witty person ... it is so hard to believe he is gone now. The world is a little less brighter without his presence in it. It was a privilege to have had the opportunity to know and to work with Wayne. May wonderful memories sustain you while you mourn his loss.

I first met Wayne in 1963 in Junior High School (Keene, N.H.). He was the new kid in town and like any new kid we (townies) wanted to know what this new arrival was made of!? It didn't take long to see that he was smart, good looking, personable, and later and to our benefit, one hell of an athlete, but more than that it turns out he was simply one GREAT guy and friend. I'm going to miss you Wayne big time! My condolences! Stephen Seraichick

Kathleen and family, I send my sincerest sympathies to you all on Wayne's passing. Wayne was the quarterback and team captain for the Keene High School Class of 1969 football team. He was not only a great quarterback, but a great friend and leader off the field as well. I can still hear the sound of his laughter and was always an inspiration for me. Please know that my heart and prayers go out to you in this difficult time.

Kathleen and family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Wayne was truly one of the good guys and a great colleague at PC Connection. I have fond memories of our many conversations in the old days.

Kathleen, We are so very sorry to hear of Waynes passing. I (Dru) grew up in back of Waynes childhood home. They were on Beech St, we were on Dover. He was such a kind caring boy who grew up to be a wonderful man I was able to get to know further during the few years your children were at Fuller School. Our very sincerest sympathy to you and your children. Dru (Blake) and Barry Fox

Kathleen, It is with the deepest and most heartfelt sympathy that we send our love to you and your family. Wayne was always a true and loving friend .. never forgetting to call John on his birthday every year even sending him a CD of favorite Motown music! They shared a wonderful friendship since they first worked together almost 40 years ago. We are heartbroken by your loss as it is a loss to all of us who loved him and he will be deeply missed.

Kathleen I am so sorry to hear this news. I had not seen Wayne for years, but you remember those times where I saw you both and it was such a treat. I remember Wayne fondly- his smile and his stopping to have a short chat even if he was running off somewhere to a meeting. I send my love to you and your whole family.

Kathleen- Brigid and I offer our sincere condolences. I fondly remember our impromptu chats running into him as he was either going to or coming from the rec center. He was a great guy and the picture of him you have chosen truly captures the essence of him.

About 45 years have passed since Wayne passed me on his bicycle on Roxbury Street, flashing his right hand to announce that a second opinion on his smashed index finger had failed to save it. Where did all those years go, and why did I choose today of all days to scan the Keene Sentinel website for the first time in six months or more? Kathleen, I'm sorry to read that so classic a romance should be interrupted in what is still the prime of life, but such a marriage is not ended by death.
