Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

"Sometimes, no matter how much faith we have, we lose people. But you never forget them. And sometimes, it's those memories that give us the strength to go on"

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Alex Rohr who was born in Ohio on April 24, 1985 and passed away on February 08, 2005 due to a tragic accident at the age of 19. We will remember him forever. 

Alex graduated from Massillon Washington High school and was attending the University of Akron where he was majoring in Criminal Justice to pursue his deam of becoming a police officer. The Alexander J. Rohr scholarship fund is now set up in his name through the University of Akron's criminal justice program to help other students in the same field to achieve their goals and dreams.

Alex was a sweet and caring person who is loved by everyone who knew him. His smile was one that could brighten anyone's day and he touched all of our lives in many ways. Alex was a great son, brother and friend who is missed more and more each and everyday. WE LOVE AND MISS YOU AL!

"God saw you were getting tired
And a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply
We could not make you stay
Your golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best..."
