John Leo “Jack” Mohr died suddenly on February 11, 2022. He was 80 years old.
Born in Southwest Philadelphia, he grew up as the oldest of eleven children in St. Barnabas Parish and was a West Catholic School graduate. He served his country during the Vietnam War (1967-68), wedding his beloved Margie soon after his return. They celebrated 53 years of marriage together. Jack co-founded Coastal Land Contractors in southern New Jersey in partnership with Bill Rumpp, with whom he worked for over 45 years.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Agnes Mohr (nee Koch), his sisters Julia Jeffers, Jane Werndl, and Carol Crossley, and his brothers-in-law Thomas Jeffers, John Gray, and Jerry Werndl.
Jack enjoyed making frequent trips to Cape May and spending long weekends at his favorite place – a cabin at Lake in the Wood campground in Lancaster County, PA. He called it his “little bit of Heaven.” He was an avid reader and lover of nature. Jack was also an active member of Our Lady of Peace Parish and served as a lector for many years.
He was a beloved husband of Margaret (nee James), father of J. Christopher Mohr (Andrea) and Kevin Mohr (Veronica), and grandfather of Victoria, Alexandra, Fiona, and Damian Mohr. In addition, he is survived by his siblings Maryann Hanna (John), James Mohr, William Mohr (Marianne), Robert Mohr (Rosemary), Thomas Mohr (Diane), Claire Gray, Michael Mohr, and brother-in-law, Warren Crossley, Sr, as well as by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
