June 7, 1960 - July 14, 2018
Richard Rohr, 58, of Eaton Rapids, passed away on July 14, 2018 at home in the arms of his loving wife. Rich was born on June 7, 1960 to Russell and Jerry (Welch) Rohr in Lansing, MI. Many will remember Rich for his personality and soul. His big happy smile and laugh were contagious. People were drawn to his gentle & humble spirit as he was always fun, outgoing, joking, and loveable, unless you asked his views on world politics. Then you had to be prepared for an animated conversation. Rich loved to read and learn new things. He worked with his hands, building things out of wood, working on motors, small engine repairs. He enjoyed playing on a family baseball team for a number of seasons. He also loved basketball, football, karate, Boy Scouts, fishing, camping, family get-togethers. Some of those activities influenced his enthusiasm as a fan of Tigers Baseball, Detroit Lions Football, and the MSU Spartans. For 23 years Rich was a truck driver, driving 2 million miles with no accidents, and no tickets. Many of his friends only knew him over the CB by his radio handle “Slip Seat.” Many will also remember Rich from his jobs at Preston, Wolverton, and Perfection Bakeries (Aunt Millies). Rich currently worked for Advanced Auto in Eaton Rapids where he was the Commercial “Parts Pro” manager. Through his membership in the Charlotte Assembly of God his love for the Lord has grown. Especially over the last five years. He enjoyed serving the church on the greeting and hospitality teams, although he served wherever he was needed. His love for the Lord shined and was demonstrated through his love for others. He would do anything for anyone. Above all Rich was most proud of his family; his wife and best friend of 18 plus years Stephanie, and his kids of which he was a Dad to 4, and father to 6. He loved family time, get-togethers, cookouts, campfires, and camping. Richard is survived by his wife, Stephanie (Carter) Rohr; children, Russ, Ritch, Jami, and Jena Rohr, Lyle (Amie) Laudenslager, Sierra (Andrew) Saylor; his mother, Jerry Rohr; his sister, Kitty Rohr; and nephew, Griffen Rohr-Clark. Rich was predeceased by his father Russell Rohr.
