Eliot B. Mohr, age 76, entered into rest April 6, 2018 at his home in Spokane, Washington.
Eliot was born November 10, 1941 in Great Bend, KS to Edward and Verna (Scotland) Mohr, and grew up on the family farm homesteaded by his German grandparents outside of Otis, KS. He married Joelle Riederer at the farm in September, 1960, and they had a daughter, Michelle. He married Louise Faul in Longview, WA on May 12, 1967.
He was a carpenter by trade and moved to Spokane in 1969 to help build Sacred Heart Hospital. He and Louise founded Mohr Construction in 1972; in 1977 they purchased a custom cabinet shop to add to their services and later opened Kitchen/Interior Showcase. He served on the board of two contractors associations in Spokane, as well as Pasadena Water. He was active in Spokane County Search and Rescue and the North Idaho ATV Association. Eliot enjoyed fishing and hunting (he was a life member of the NRA) and skied nearly every season for 20 years at 49 Degrees North, Chewelah, WA. During retirement, he and Louise spent time at Mayfield Lake in Mossy Rock, WA.
