Alfred "Fred" Loren MOHR was born December 6, 1925, in Cromwell, Iowa, to Griffith William and Edith Hannah (BRAY) MOHR. He graduated from Tingley High School in 1943. Fred then joined the United States Navy with his best friend, serving in the South Pacific during WWII as a Radioman Second Class. He received several medals while in the Navy. After his discharge from the Navy in 1947, he attended Northwest Missouri State University. Fred married Jessie SAVILLE in 1949 in Mount Ayr, Iowa. They made their home in Ringgold County before moving to Fort Dodge in 1954 and then to the Callender area in 1956. Fred took several college courses to become a journeyman electrician. He worked as an electrician at New Idea in Fort Dodge until it closed. The family then moved to Fremont, Iowa, where Fred worked as an electrician at John Deere in Ottumwa. He retured from John Deere in 1988. After retiring, Fred and Jessie moved to their home in Gowrie.

Fred thoroughly enjoyed his years of retirement. He looked forward to many family fishing trips to Minnesota. He especially enjoyed yard work, his rose garden and feeding and watching birds. Fred was an avid Chicago Cubs and Iowa Hawkeyes fan and John Deere collector. He was a member of the United Methodist Church in Gowrie, the American Legion Post 431 and the Electrical Union.
