Passing of a MAPPS Founder

Posted By John Palatiello, Friday, December 28, 2012

It is my sad duty to report that Don Mohr, a President of the Legislative Council of Photogrammetry (LCP, the predecessor of MAPPS) and one of the founders of MAPPS, passed away peacefully on Christmas Day at the age of 82.

Don was the founder of AeroMetric. He had most recently visited his many MAPPS friends and colleagues at our 20th anniversary conference in Monterey, CA in 2002 and our 25th anniversary celebration in Bretton Woods, NH in 2007.

Don suffered a stroke several months ago and had been in a nursing home in Elkhart Lake, WI. I had the honor and pleasure of visiting with Don and Marlene, and their two sons, in October.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Don's name for Saron United Church of Christ W3830 County Road J, Sheboygran Falls, WI 53085 and Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice W2850 County Road 28, Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085.

Condolences can be sent to Marlene Mohr, 22 Point Elkhart Drive, Elkhart Lake, WI 53020.
