Kermit Stephen Mohn, of Raleigh, passed away peacefully on August 17, 2021 at home after battling ALS. He leaves his loving and devoted wife of 58 years, Barbara, his sons Steve (Jackie) of Dayton, OH, and Andy (Carol) of Cary, NC, and his daughter Kim of Morrisville, NC. He also leaves behind eight grandchildren, Colin, Stephen, Vivian, Jacob, Estere, Kerline, Isaiah and Asher.

Steve was born in Reading, PA but grew up in Rockville, MD, the oldest son of Kermit Brown Mohn who worked as a labor economist at the Labor Department and Pentagon, and Evelyn Hoffman Mohn, RN. He had an interest in playing basketball while attending Richard Montgomery High School and was a serious student. He graduated from Duke University with a degree in accounting in 1962 . He entered the United States Air Force in the summer of 1963. He served in Vietnam where he managed logistics and flew with supplies all over the Philippines and south Vietnam. He received his masters degree in logistics management from the Air Force Institution of Technology. He, Barbara and family were stationed at various bases around the country and overseas over his career. After retiring from the Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel in Dayton, OH, he continued work in the private sector at Arinc Inc. as a senior manager with his final project in 2002 being the installation of IT equipment at the newest terminal JFK airport.

Steve was an avid Duke and Yankees fan and loved attending games at Cameron Indoor Stadium and saw his final Yankees stadium game in 2019. He loved singing choral music, the highlight was in 2011, while singing with St. Gregory the Great’s choir at St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome, Italy. He also learned to play the viola while retired and played with the Really Terrible Orchestra of The Triangle, Cary, NC from 2015-2019. His love of Jesus Christ was shown through his acts of service in his church, community, friends and family.
