Holland “Bo” Bohannon, 98, a resident of the Golden Triangle for over 40 years passed away peacefully from this life, surrounded by his family, Sept. 13, at his home in Port Neches.
Holland “Bo” was born June 26, 1916 to William Jackson and Georgia Bohannon in Hopper, A. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and great-great grandfather. He kept the Lord first in his life and was a faithful and longtime member of the Church of Christ.
