Edward J. Rohr, age 60 of North Lawrence, Ohio, died on August 8, 2020, doing what he loved, riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
He was preceded in death by his parents Elmer J. and Janice Rohr. He is survived by his brother, Eric Rohr of North Canton, longtime girlfriend, Connie Barnes of Wooster, uncles, aunts, cousins and close family friends. Ed was a lifelong resident of Jackson Township at the Rohr family farm on Mudbrook Road. He graduated from Jackson High School in 1978, and Stark State College with a degree in Civil Engineering.
He was the owner of Sugarcreek Construction and Rohr Stock Farm. Ed will be remembered for living life to the fullest. He had a passion for raising and showing Paint and Quarter horses and socializing with family and friends. He loved his many animals, especially his dogs Banjo, Cynch, and Colt. He loved hay making season, but the sentiment was not shared by all that helped. And, he was ever so thankful.
