Obituary for Peter S. Bohan

October 8, 1947 - November 25, 2017
Goffstown, New Hampshire | Age 70


Peter Shanley Bohan passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 25th after some health complications. He was surrounded by family, thoughtful caregivers, and the loving support of many friends. Pete was 70 years old. A native of Manchester, NH and the son of the late Harold and Ruth Bohan, Pete attended Memorial High School and Keene State College, and he served in the United States Marines. With a lifelong interest in sports, Pete volunteered his time to local youth soccer, hockey, and baseball leagues as a coach for his sons' teams. Though health issues limited his ability to be out on the water later in his life, Pete always found great joy in fishing the New Hampshire waters with his family and friends. He also loved the New England professional teams and was rarely spotted without a baseball hat sporting the logo of one of them. Pete was a loving husband, brother, father, uncle, grandpa, and friend. His hearty laugh was recognized by many everywhere he went.

Pete is survived by his wife Susan; brother Paul and his wife Diane; son Scott and his wife Lori; son Shane and his wife Lindsay; stepson David Manter and his wife Mary; stepson Dan Manter and his wife Eliza; and many loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brother Robert.

A celebration of Pete's life will be hosted by the family at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the "NH Tomorrow Fund" of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation ( 37 Pleasant Street, Concord, NH 03301 or online at ) or the charity of your choice.
