OBITUARY

Robert A. Wohl

Posted

The family of Robert Wohl wish to let friends in Las Cruces know that he died peacefully on Sunday January 3, 2021 in California. He is sadly missed by his wife Christine and daughters Melissa and Suzanne. Having retired from Bombardier Inc. in Montreal where he led the division that developed the CRJ, the first regional jet airliner, a new life in Las Cruces allowed Bob to maintain connections with his past work world but also to develop additional artistic interests.

The Las Cruces Sunday airport breakfast was a social hub for those with aerospace connections and Bob enjoyed those contacts. Las Cruces with a culturally diverse population in a beautiful natural desert setting having a land grant university which promoted links between the university and community, stimulated a vibrant art community at that time. Bob became a member of the film board at the historic Fountain Theater; a wordsmith he participated in various poetry venues and poetry groups in the city. In addition he enjoyed classical music and was very involved with the Las Cruces Symphony at NMSU.

The memorable art gallery of Carolyn and Henry Bunch expanded his interest in local art. These connections resulted in many friendships during the almost twenty years that he and his wife Christine lived in Las Cruces. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to support Doctors Without Borders or the National Parks Foundation.

Funeral arragements: Due to Covid, a celebration of Bob's life will be set at a later date.
