Robert “Boogs” Bohannon, 60, has gone to the Emerald City with the blessing of God. Born on November 2nd ,1954, he died unexpectedly on July 26th with many cherished memories taken with him and left behind.

Born in St. Albans VT, he was predeceased by his parents, Thomas Gilbert Bohannon and Virginia Agnes Bohannon. He was raised in Alburgh Vermont where he became a man of many skills.

Robert was also survived by siblings that will continue the Bohannon tradition of the big family dinners, front yard parties and unwavering support to each other. Gilbert Bohannon and his wife Cathy Bohannon, David Bohannon and his wife Mary Ann Martell-Bohannon, Beatrice Rourke and her husband Jason Rourke, Donna Bohannon-Larose and her husband Codie Larose, along with many uniquely special nieces and nephews.

He had friends across the land that shared in his life and contributed to who he was as a man and Father. Every day that was spent with him produced personal memories. Come share them with us on Saturday. Shoes are optional.
