Moritz Hannon Flohr, Jr.

Moritz Hannon “Mort” Flohr, Jr., 85, born August 8, 1936, formerly of Canisteo, died October 24, 2021, in Virginia.

Mort graduated from Canisteo High School in 1954 and immediately started working for the Radio Station, WLEA. He was very humerous, while he gave the weather report, and other items. His show was called “Mort’s Corner.” Mort’s quick wit was enjoyed by all, with many followers.

He was pre-deceased by his father, Moritz Flohr of Canisteo, his stepmother, Agnes, and his mother, Pat, of Florida.

After working at WLEA, he was drafted into the US Army, serving in Europe at the end of his term. Following his discharge, he moved to Norfolk, Virginia, where he worked for a radio & TV station until his retirement a few years ago, at which time he moved to Chesapeake, VA and lived comfortably with his sweet kitty.

Mort is survived by his close lifelong friend, Floryann Walker, who currently lives on the Cape in Massachusetts.

His relatives include three first cousins: Joan Coleman of Hornell, Joseph Callahan of Hornell and Michael Callahan of Liverpool, NY.

A private graveside service will be held at the family plot in Howard Cemetery later this spring.  Local funeral arrangements are in care of the Dagon Funeral Home, 38 Church St., Hornell, NY.
