George H.  Dohlman

George Henry Dohlman, age 78, of Le Roy, passed to eternal rest on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, at the Patty Elwood Center, Cresco, Iowa.

George was born Nov. 22, 1940, in Kesley, Iowa, the 11th child of Henry and Kate Dohlman. George received his education at the "University of Oakdale No. 6." He received his GED from LeRoy-Ostrander High School in 1966. George started working for the LeRoy Farmers Cooperative Elevator Division in 1957.

While working there he met the love of his life, Fern McRoberts. They were wed on Oct. 29, 1960, at the First Presbyterian Church in LeRoy. To this union, three children were born, Richard George, Kevin Lee and Patty Ann.

George and Fern moved to their farm in 1967 and enjoyed 19 years there.

After moving to LeRoy, George drove semi for BDK Trucking before purchasing his milk trucks, Dohlman Milk Hauling. George then went to work at Riverland Milling, driving a feed truck. His final job had him delivering the Rochester Post Bulletin for many years.

George enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, going to tractor pulls and stock car races and snowmobiling in his younger years. Saturday and Sunday drives and driving his golf cart were favorite pastimes in his later years.

George is also survived by four sisters, Minnie Klingenborg, Faye Johnson, Norma Kling, and Judy (Joe) Langlie; three sisters-in-law, Wanda Dohlman, Mary McRoberts and Lila (Bill) Feather.
