Bohumil (Bob) Mach of Lynchburg, VA, age 79, passed away at home on January 7, 2023. Bob was devoted to his wife and family and is survived by his wife, Nancy Mach, three children, Joseph Mach, Marina Mails, and Ali Maimone, his sister, Marie Chroustova, four grandchildren (with one on the way), and nieces and nephews, and their families — all dear to his heart. Bohumil was born in Mochov, Czech Republic, and left the country during the Prague Spring in 1969, immigrating to the United States in 1971. A retired electrical engineer, hard worker and all-around handyman, he was always tinkering and fixing up home and garden projects. Bob had a love of language and travel, and was fluent in many languages. He loved movies, bread-baking, square-dancing and music, and dedicated countless hours to his daily violin practice. He will be greatly missed.
