Dale Bohn

Obituary of Dale Bohn

BOHN - Dale Warren was born on March 16, 1961 in the Yorkton Union Hospital to Reinhold and Edna Bohn (nee Patzer). On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, surrounded by his loving family, he met Jesus after a short stay in Regina General Hospital at the age of 62.

     Dale grew up and attended Elementary school in Ebenezer, and then moved onto Yorkton Composite and Regional High School. After the completion of high school while starting his farming career with his dad and brother Vance, he worked at Morris Rod-Weeder as a Production Welder. As the farm grew and became more demanding it only allowed time to weld during the winter months for a few more years. Shortly after graduating high school in the early years of his career, he met a young lady at the Ebenezer Baptist Church Youth Group named Judy Mihalicz. Dale and Judy enjoyed finding time for water skiing, fishing and snowmobiling as well as playing Rook with the Fandreys and supporting our Saskatchewan Roughriders. Dale was baptized November 9, 1975; his faith in Christ Jesus as his saviour and dedication to the authority of scripture started at a young age but continued to be evident in how he lived his life and the impact he had on the people around him. Dale was always heavily involved in the Ebenezer Baptist Church and all the ministries it had to offer such as Pioneer Clubs, Boys Brigade, Centershot, Youth Sponsors, Children’s Sunday School Teacher, Singing Men and most recently serving as a deacon.

      After four years of dating and a 3-month engagement, the couple tied the knot on November 24, 1984. They lived in Yorkton for a short time before moving to a house in Ebenezer where they proceeded to start their family; with the arrival of their first daughter on April 1, 1989, Joelle. Eighteen months later they purchased the current homestead, two miles east of Ebenezer, where the Dale Bohn legacy would continue to grow with the birth of their second daughter, Michelle. Dale and Vance not only farmed but raised their families together which made for a tight knit family with a lot of memories and experiences. The importance of family has had a lasting impact and can be seen in their children. The family business was just that with the addition of Ardice and Judy to the harvest team after Dale and Vance’s dad fully passed the torch on and retired. Dale and Vance enjoyed 40+ years of fun, family and farming which is a testament to their shared faith. After Vance’s retirement, Dale continued the tradition of leading the next generation with the addition of his son-in-law Derek.

     October 26, 2022 brought the addition of Dale’s first and highly anticipated granddaughter, Scottie Dayla Smart, which quickly became the apple of his eye and brought a lot of joy and happiness even through the hard times. Grandpa Dale could be found watching tootsie over the crib camera or watching silly songs with Larry in his chair with her on his lap. With equal excitement, Dale was eagerly awaiting the arrival of his first grandson to Michelle and Kurt.

     In recent years and throughout his health struggles the people around Dale have been witness to his love for God, the encouragement of his hope and the peace that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus.

     Dale is predeceased by his parents Reinhold and Edna Bohn; an infant brother who died at birth; brother Vance Bohn; his father and mother-in-law, Joseph and Judith Mihalicz; and brother-in-law Jim Mihalicz. He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, Judy; daughters, Joelle (Derek) and granddaughter Scottie Smart of Ebenezer, SK, Michelle (Kurt) Karcha of Yorkton, SK; a sister Carolyn (Ivahn) Dockter of Rochester, MN; sister-in-law Ardice Bohn of Yorkton, SK; brother-in-law Garry (Sherry) Mihalicz of Saskatoon, SK; brother-in-law Dave (Bev) Mihalicz of Assiniboia, SK; Ken (Debbie) Mihalicz of Lintlaw, SK; sister-in-law Faye (Vern) Nystedt of Brandon, MB as well as many nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all that knew him.
