PORT CLINTON, Ohio – A young man has died from cancer, just weeks after his community pulled together to make sure he was able to celebrate Christmas one last time.
Devin Kohlman, 13, died Monday afternoon. He had been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year.
With just a day’s notice, the city of Port Clinton came together last month to hold a welcome home parade for Devin, and decorated the town early for Christmas so Devin could take part in the holiday celebration.
The mayor of Port Clinton has declared Oct. 31 to be Devin Kohlman day.
