MOHAWK, NY – There was a hoedown at the Mohawk American Legion Saturday to celebrate the life of a local farmer and raise money for a scholarship in his name.
Cory Pavlot loved farming since he was a little boy.
Pavlot suffered from a heart condition and died from a massive heart attack in 2017.
He was just 34 years old.
The hoedown featured plenty of music and dancing, baked goods, and raffle baskets.
Cory’s mother, Linda Pavlot, said it was his love of farming that encouraged them to raise money for an agricultural scholarship.
“His love was really the farm. He loved every bit of it. He’d get out of work at Remington Arms and go right to the farm.”
