He cherished his charismatic granddaughter, Ashley Taylor; and loved his three grandsons, Noah O’Neill, Ryan Taylor, and Peyton Dellinger. Mark is survived by his mother, Doris Rohrs; two brothers, Gary, his wife Teena, & Chris, his wife Dawn; one niece, Dawne Combs; and three nephews, Cameron, Gavin & Cody Rohrs.

    RIP Mark, I was upset to hear about your passing.You were a great man that strived to pass along your knowledge and make everyone else around you better. It’d definitely hard losing both you and Scott within a year of each other around xmas. It was an honor to work not only with you, but for you. I know you are at peace now brother.

    Our families lived next door to each other; but it was much more than that. The Rohrs were family. Mark had a way about him. I remember him sitting at my parents old oak kitchen table, telling stories and drinking cofffe in winter and iced tea in summer. Always laughter. Always heartfelt. Doris complained to my mother that he always ate all the marachino cherries. My mother complained to his that I always drank all the lemon juice. We had picnics together in the summer and ended the holidays together at Christmas. I am glad he got one more Christmas here with his family. He will be missed. Clyde will welcome him home.
