Michael Mohr Obituary

On Thursday, February 1, beloved husband, father, son, brother and friend, Michael Stephan Mohr of Norman, Oklahoma passed away at the age of 45. Michael was born September 25, 1978 to Vicki Mohr and Steve Mohr.

From a very young age, it was evident how talented Michael was and that he possessed many gifts which brightened the lives of those around him, including his quirky sense of humor and ability to make people laugh, quick wit, huge heart, creative spirit and genuine nature.

A natural born craftsman, Michael loved to create and could build anything he put his mind to. These traits served him well working construction for more than 30 years. He loved trains and built an intricate model train town that he spent hours perfecting and enjoying with his family.

One of his favorite pastimes included spending time with his wife and daughter. His interests also included being an avid historian, ardent sports fan, collector of antiques and enthusiastic outdoorsman. Additionally, he was a huge Star Wars fan and loved Harry Potter, as well as all the 80s and 90s classics like Goonies, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Christmas Story.

Michael loved baseball and was not only a fervent fan, but a passionate player, as well. Many a night in his teenage years were spent hitting home runs and even many grand slams serving as the coveted, go-to cleanup hitter on his high school team.

His favorite place in the world was Colorado, specifically Little Squaw. He could always find peace fly fishing in the Little Squaw River that he had known and grown up to love from the age of three. When he wasn’t fishing, as a young kid, Michael could be found hiking, whittling to make homemade bows and arrows, whipping up mud pies, horseback riding and rafting w/his mom and sister or sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows and telling stories about the latest crazy adventures spurred by his mother. Later in life, he passed his love of Little Squaw onto his wife and daughter and found so much happiness in spending time enjoying the simpler things in life like teaching his daughter to fly fish.

Some of Michael’s other fond childhood memories included spending the weekends at the lake and skiing in Colorado with his dad, sister and family.

Twenty-five years ago, he met and fell in love with his high school sweetheart and the woman who would become his lifelong partner and best friend. But it was fifteen years ago that his life changed in ways he never could have imagined and experienced the love he had always wanted – that of his daughter. This year he would have celebrated 20 years of marriage with his wife.

To know Michael was to love Michael, and he will be missed dearly by so many people who knew and loved him. He leaves behind his wife, Michelle Mohr; daughter, Payton Mohr; mother, Vicki Mohr; sister, Katheryn Ussery and her husband, Timmy, daughters, Vivi and Emi and son, Oliver; father and stepmother, Steve and Julie Mohr, stepsister Sarah Galbraith, and many more loved ones and friends. He is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Vivian Watkins; great aunt and uncle, Marguerite and John Piazzi; second cousin, Myrna Piazzi; paternal grandmother and grandfather, Katheryn and Charles Mohr; and uncle, Greg Mohr.

Family, friends and others whose lives Michael touched are invited to Rudy’s Country Store and BBQ (3450 Chautauqua Ave., Norman) from 2-5pm on Wed, Feb. 7th to reminisce and celebrate Michael’s life.
