Prof. Truman Kohman with eyes always on stars

Prof. Kohman, 94, of Mt. Lebanon, died Wednesday at home. Right up until his death, he was peering into the heavens, trying to find the first 100 asteroids to be numbered.   He is survived by his wife, Jane; two daughters, Leslie of Syracuse, N.Y., and Paulette of Helena, Mont.; a son, Steven, of Mount Washington; and a sister, Barbara Howe of Colts Neck, N.J.  A memorial service was held on Sunday, May 2 at 2 p.m. at Bower Hill Community Church, Mt. Lebanon.
