Kenny Boehm passed away very unexpectedly on Friday, April 20. He will be greatly missed by the many people who loved him.
Most of all, Kenny loved his family, friends, and Catholic Faith. He deeply cherished the faithful home his mother and father bore him into and always enjoyed the great love shared between his eight brothers and sisters and their families. Kenny always considered himself lucky to have so many wonderful friends with whom he could share his life, in particular his very close friend and companion, Ann Hurrle. He considered his life’s greatest work the home made together with his former spouse, Kelli (McGovern) Boehm. They had two sons, and Kenny’s greatest source of pride and joy were his three grandchildren.
Kenny was a parishioner of Good Shepherd Catholic Church. Besides Good Shepherd, Kenny would also claim that three other Catholic Communities had significantly helped shape his faith and form the backdrop for many of his friendships: Holy Name, Roncalli High School, and Our Lady of the Greenwood.
Kenny also loved his work. Alongside very dedicated and talented employees, he operated Lamb Machine Precision Cams, State Gear, and Enviropeel USA.
Kenny is survived by, son, Rev. Dustin Boehm; daughter-in-law, Maria (Danis) Boehm; grandchildren, Isabella, Killian, and Victoria Boehm; sisters, Malinda Hinkle, Rosanna Wagner, Marty Turner, Barbara Hank; brothers, Paul, Bob, Wil, and Pius Boehm; many nieces and nephews; step-father, Bud Sheese. Kenny was preceded in death by son, Adam Boehm and parents, Catherine and Wilfred Boehm.
