Obituary

Boxborough, MA: Paul Daniel Ohrman, a retired metallurgical engineer and published author of “Living to Serve: Church, Family, Country” and “Bridges to Peace. WW II Through the Lens of a Combat Engineer” died peacefully with his family by his side at home March 9, 2019. He was 96.

Born and raised in McKeesport, PA, he was the son of the late Daniel A. and Matilda H. (Anderson) Ohrman. Mr. Ohrman married his childhood sweetheart, Alice (Roland) Ohrman on December 21, 1947, and the couple resided in McKeesport and Monroeville, PA. where they raised their family.

Mr. Ohrman served honorably in the US Army during WW II as a Technical Specialist Grade 5 photographer with the 264th Combat Engineering Battalion in the European Theatre, building bridges for Patton’s 3rd Army. Mr. Ohrman took photographs of Erfurt and Buchenwald concentration camps when they were liberated. Following his military service, Mr. Ohrman earned degrees from Washington and Jefferson University, the University of New Hampshire, and Carnegie Mellon University. He was employed by US Steel as a chief metallurgical engineer at various mills and the national headquarters in Pittsburgh. After retiring from US Steel, he became technical services manager at National Materials Corp. and Tang Industries.

He was a dedicated and active member of his community as an Eagle Scout, Board of Regents member at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL, the Christian Businessmen Board, Youth for Christ treasurer and Board of Directors member, and attended the First Evangelical Free Church of McKeesport for many years serving as Chairman, Elder, teacher and Missions Committee Chairman. He also served the Allegheny District of the Evangelical Free Church of America in various capacities, including chairman. In 2014 Mr. Ohrman moved to Boxborough to reside with his daughter, Kristine Young and her family. He became a beloved member of the community and attended the Faith Evangelical Free Church in Acton, MA.

He is survived by two children: Timothy and Susan (Whitfield) Ohrman of Marlton, NJ; a daughter Kristine (Ohrman) and Michael Young of Boxborough, MA; 4 grandchildren Rebecca (Ohrman) and Matthew Wieber of Gilbertsville, PA, Erik Ohrman of NYC, NY; K. Michelle (Young) and Dar Heinze of Chelmsford, MA; and Stephen and Emily (Purinton) Young of Ft. Campbell, KY; and 9 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Alice (Roland), and his brother, Clyde Ohrman of Estero, FL.

To his family he was a hero, not just because of his service in WW II, but because of his life of integrity for the glory of God, showing us all how to live out our faith.
