Adolph Kohout Passes At 84; Services Tuesday

Adolph Joseph Kohout Jr., 84, of Dorchester passed away April 21, 2016. He was born June 18, 1931 in Monroe Precinct, Saline County, Dorchester, NE. Adolph attended Country Schools, District #94 and then #55. In 1945 he helped his dad farming.

He was a member of ZCBJ – WFLA Number 389 Saline Center and received his 75 year membership pin in 2013. At a young age, Adolph was interested in playing the accordion, maybe because his father played as well. He did get one and learned to play, Adolph was still playing but just at home for the family and other gatherings.

Adolph and Doris Hronik were married November 21, 1950 at Grace United Methodist Church in Crete and lived on the same farm where he was born. They had two children, Marilyn and Marvin. During winter months he worked away from home at Crete Mills, Alpo, Petersen Manufacturing, Biba Construction, REA near Geneva, Yankee Hill Brick Company and Wanek’s Furniture. One year Adolph and John Korinek went to put up Christmas lights in Council Bluffs for C.P. Ames Construction.

Adolph continued farming and raising cattle and pigs even after moving into Dorchester in 1977. He would go out every day until 2003 when he rented the land out and gave up his livestock. Even in his 80s, he was still going out to help at harvest time to move machinery from one place to the next.

He is preceded in death by his parents, sisters and brothers-in-law, Adeline (Lambert) Karpisek, Erma (Elmer) Burda and John Pavlish. Survivors include his loving wife of 65 years, Doris of Dorchester; daughter, Marilyn (Owen) Jensen of Mead; son, Marvin (Lorraine) Kohout of Dorchester; grandchildren, Renee (Luis) Jaime, Shaun Jensen, Jeremy (Lindsay) Kohout, Patrick Kohout; great grandchildren, Emalyn, Belanie & Mallory Jaime, Conner, Jonny & Gracie Kohout; sister, Mary Ann Pavlish of Wilber.
