Henry L. “Sonny” Bohman, age 78 of Enochsburg, died Thursday, June 9, 2016 at his residence. Born February 25, 1938 in Batesville, he is the son of Otilla (Nee: Messingschlager) and Lawrence Bohman. He married Darlene Feller July 2, 1966 at St. Anthony’s Church in Morris and would have celebrated their 50th anniversary next month. Sonny worked as a shipping clerk and assistant foreman 38 years at Batesville Casket Company before retiring in 2001 and was a lifelong farmer.Sonny spent his entire life on the family farm he dearly loved. His family teased that he was very particular about how he did things around the farm and would let you know if you weren’t doing it right. He was also an avid card player. Canasta and 500 were his favorite games in addition to playing a little solo. Sonny was serious about playing cards and idle chatter wasn’t necessary. Other interests included fishing, squirrel hunting, following the Colts, Gardening and riding his four wheeler through the woods. After retiring from Batesville Casket Sonny took up woodworking and according to the family, if you’re in need of a bird house, you may want to talk to them. He and Darlene enjoyed traveling out west over the years as well as taking several trips to Branson, Missouri. His grandchildren, though, were his pride and joy. He delighted in attending all of their activities and sporting events.Sonny is survived by his wife Darlene; daughter Sharon Miller of Batesville; son and daughter-in-law Jeff & Teresa Bohman of Batesville and grandchildren Elizabeth and Matthew Miller and Brad and Katie Bohman. He is preceded in death by his parents.Visitation is Sunday, June 12th, from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home.

When pressed on the matter, he added: “Yes, there are offers on the table from both clubs.” He insisted he had not made any decision yet and had no preference between the two clubs, adding: “All I want is to play football wherever I go and enjoy myself.” A move to City would mean linking up again with Pellegrini, with whom he has spent the last two years at Malaga. Isco was keen to highlight the crucial role the Chilean coach has had on his career and hinted the fact he has been confirmed as the new coach at the Etihad Stadium may play to City’s advantage. “It’s true that I already know him, I know how he works and in the two years I spent with him at Malaga he has been fundamental to my career,” he said. “The fact that we have worked together and I know his style of management is another reason, but it’s not a decisive factor.” However, he was keen to stress that he had not made any contact with his former boss since he was announced as City coach. “I haven’t spoken with him,” he said. “I found out they had hired him while I was reading the news on the internet, but he hasn’t called me.” The 21-year-old is certain to leave cash-strapped Malaga and he told Spanish newspaper AS that both the Spanish giants and Manuel Pellegrini’s side have made concrete offers. Asked about the efforts the two clubs have made to sign him, Isco responded: “Those are the two clubs that have shown the most interest. I hope to decide soon because I still have a contract with Malaga. I know that Manchester City and Real Madrid are both huge clubs. I hope that whatever I choose will be the best for me and for Malaga.” Spanish midfielder Isco has revealed that his future club is a straight choice between Real Madrid and Manchester City.
