    Doug was a favorite coworker of mine at Allstate several years back. When I found out he and Marti were dating, I was ecstatic. Two great people that made an amazing couple. He called me ‘spicy meatball’, an endearing name from an endearing man. Rest in peace my Friend.

  8. George Hunt says:

    Pastor Wohn married my late wife and me in 1987. My wife was living in Akron and I in Bellflower Ca. My wife did marriage instruction with him while I had my instruction with my pastor in Ca. After marriage we moved to Ca. where we lived until moving to Oregon in 2006. I moved back to Akron in December of 2014. I tried to locate Pastor Wohn at the Church on E. Market when I returned but no one I spoke with knew where he was. I will ALWAYS be thankful that he worked with us (me) long distance so I could marry my beautiful girl.
