Herbert W. Roehner, 98


Herbert W. Roehner, 98, born May 11, 1915, passed on to eternal life and went home to be with the Lord and join his wife of 51 years, Helene, on June 13, 2013.

His family emigrated from Germany when he was 8 years old. In 1939 he married his childhood sweetheart, Helene Lasch. They had three children. Herb (as he was called by everyone) studied and became an electrician with his own business called ElectroSound. He later worked for Allen-Bradley for more than 30 years until retiring in 1975. He was an avid ham radio operator with many friends throughout the country. He also taught classes in Morse code.

He is survived by his children, Gerald (Kay), Marlene (Gerold) and Martin (Lee Ann); one brother, Kurt (Elsie); one sister-in-law, Else Lotz; five grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, two nieces and one nephew.

He was a gentle, kind man who will be missed by all who knew him.
