I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Fred and the Rohr family from our gatherings in Ness City. Uncle Fred was a cherished big brother to my Dad and I’m sure they are telling stories and playing jokes on each other right now.
I am so sorry for your loss but so happy that Uncle Fred’s spirit will live in the hearts and memories of many wonderful people.
We are thinking of and praying for all of Uncle Fred’s family and friends.

What a beautiful legacy Uncle Fred leaves behind, through his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I'll always remember his laugh and how he and dad used to tease each other when we got together. The love in the Rohr family was ever-present, and I know his memory will keep that love alive in the family. We're thinking about you all and have you in our thoughts an prayers. Love you! - Carolyn (Rohr) Reiffman and family

Uncle Fred was the best! I just remember him always smiling and joking with all of us growing up. My mother was only a year older and they were the best of friends. It was so much fun to watch them tease each other. My childhood was filled with so much love from the Rohr family. I will miss him very much. Kelli (McFadden) Baker
