Joseph “Joe” Rohr, age 77, loving husband and father, passed away on April 4, 2021, at home surrounded by his family.
Joe was born in Detroit to Joseph and Eileen (O’Donnell) Rohr on March 30, 1944.
After graduating high school, he joined the U.S. Army where he served his country proudly for 4 years.
He met his future wife, Michelle, on a blind date. After dating for 11 months, they were married and enjoyed 51 years of wonderful, wedded bliss. Together they raised two wonderful children, Joe IV and Wendy. He loved being a grandpa to his 5 grandchildren as well.
Joe was a proud Teamster of Local 337, working for Farmer Jacks’ grocery chain for 29 years. After retiring, Joe took great pride in his vegetable garden and flower beds. He enjoyed any activity that allowed him to be outside in the fresh air.
Joe was preceded by his parents, and brother John.
He is survived by his wife; children; and grandchildren, Mackenzie, Haileigh, Joseph “Joey”, Marianne, and Sarah.
Per Joe’s wishes, his cremation has taken place and a private ceremony will be held at a later date.
