Obituary of David Mohl
David Mohl, January 17, 1936 – March 25, 2022
The loving heart of David (Dave) Mohl, 86, of Sun City Center, Fla, gave out on March 25, 2022. His humor will be sorely missed by many.
After graduating from Northwestern University and serving in the Army for 2 years, Dave worked in the insurance and real estate industries in Chicago. As President of Downs, Mohl and Company, he owned and operated a successful and highly respected property management company in Chicago and its suburbs for many years before retiring and moving to Sun City Center (SCC) in 2003.
Dave used his management skills, diplomacy, and resourcefulness as a volunteer for many Sun City Center and Freedom Plaza activities and committees. Two of his proudest achievements were starting the SCC outdoor bandshell concerts in 2010 and a few years later convincing the owner of the SCC shopping mall to upgrade its store exteriors. He was also President of the SCC Tennis Association and the Caloosa Trace Homeowners Association as well as Chairman of the Freedom Plaza Finance Committee, among many other activities.
Humor was important to Dave as he played golf, tennis, attended meetings and participated in social activities. As he said, “I spent a lot of time trying for laughs,” and indeed he was fun to be with, even during his eight months in hospice care.
Dave is survived by his wife of 36 years, Judy, his brothers Barry Mohl of SCC and Jeff Mohl of Sarasota and their wives, Lorna and Anne, four nieces and nephews, and five grand nieces and nephews. His older brother, Fred Mohl, pre-deceased him.
A private ceremony will be held at the Sarasota National Cemetery at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Life Path Hospice (3723 Upper Creek Dr, Ruskin, FL 33573), the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Emergency Assistance Program (702 Valley Forge Blvd, Sun City Center, FL 33573), or a local food pantry of your choice.
