Erich Bruno Blohm
Erich Bruno Blohm was born on Oct. 6, 1930, in Poth, Texas, to Walter and Hulda Blohm and entered eternal life on Friday, April 11, 2014.
Erich was devoted to his family and the Good News Lutheran Church. He enjoyed hunting with his best friend and brother, Walter “Boobie” Blohm. Erich was an admirer of nature and taking pictures. His most admirable trait was helping people in their time of need. He was a very well-rounded person as he could fix a car engine, hunt animals, and play sports with anyone. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1954, and then joined the U.S. Navy until 1958. In 1959, he started his 30-year career at Kelly Air Force Base in electronics.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Janis Stanton Blohm; his parents; brothers Ben, Willy, and Bobby Blohm; and sisters Gertrude Swanner and Amanda Thompson.
Erich is survived by his son, Erich Craig Blohm and wife Julie; grandson Erich Stanton Blohm; stepdaughter Makari Jacobs; his brother, Walter Blohm; sister Elsie Lance of Redmond, Ore.; and sister-in-law Elizabeth Blohm of Portland, Ore.
A celebration of Erich’s life was held on Friday, April 25, at 6 p.m. in the Good News Lutheran Church in San Antonio.
Memorial donations may be made to the Good News Lutheran Church, 11020 Old Corpus Christi Road, San Antonio, TX 78223.
