Robert E. Rohde, age 62, of Green Lake, WI, passed away on Thursday, December 14, 2017, at his home.
He was born in Chicago, IL on September 17, 1955 to Richard and June Rohde. Robert attended John Hersey High School in Arlington Heights, IL. After exploring out west, Bob moved to the Green Lake area where he had spent his summers fishing, water skiing and boating with his brothers, Dick and Chuck. He became one of the best marine mechanics in the area, respected by his peers and appreciated by customers that came in contact with him. Along with summer activities on Green Lake, Bob also enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting and ice fishing.
Bob is survived by Glynn Rohde; daughter, Courtney (Collin); step-son, Ethan Jankowski; mother, June L. Rohde, and brother, Richard (Pamela). Bob’s nieces and nephews and extended family members around the country will remember him with love as “Uncle Bob”. And he will be missed by his many friends who knew they could count on him in times of need. Bob is preceded in death by his father, Richard E. Rohde; his brother, Charles W. Rohde; his grandparents, Fred and Elsie Eichmann, and his mother-in-law, Barbara Linde.
Per Robert’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be a summer-time celebration of Bob’s life to honor his love of Green Lake. Memorials may be directed to the Green Lake Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 86, Green Lake, WI 54941.
