Joseph C. Hohler, 92, of Berlin Heights passed away Tuesday evening, September 27, 2022, in the Stein Hospice Care Center, Sandusky.

He was born January 22, 1930, in Berea, Ohio. Joseph attended St. Joseph Elementary School, Monroeville, and was a 1947 graduate of Port Clinton High School.

He was a U.S. Air Force veteran and supported the Berlin Air Lift prior to the Korean War. He earned a bachelor's degree from Kent State University. Joseph had a diverse work history, working at Matthews Boat Company in Port Clinton, the former New-Departure Hyatt Division of General Motors, and retired in 1993 after thirty years of employment from the Ford Motor Company. Additionally, he was a partner with his brother-in-law at Landoll Publishing Company for a time. He and his wife also owned and operated the Bay Bell Grocery & Bait Store in Bay View for several years.

Joe was known for his friendliness, cigars, and coffee. He enjoyed deer and turkey hunting, fishing, wood working, boating, air shows and gardening. He also enjoyed spending time with family and friends, playing horseshoes, and commemorating these events by taking pictures with his 35 mm or disposable camera.
