Paul H. Rohrer, 88, dairy and beef farmer of Manor Township, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 27, 2011 at Hospice of Lancaster County on Good Drive.
Born June 10, 1922 in Lancaster Township, he was the son of the late Elmer B. and Rebecca Herr Rohrer. He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Edith M. (Good) Rohrer.
Mr. Rohrer was a member of Mellinger Mennonite Church. He valued his faith, and his family along with a deep love of agriculture. He was faithful to the church and served as Treasurer and on the Board of Trustees. Paul was involved with Windom Manor Farms until 2005.
In later years, he enjoyed traveling with friends and family. Special memories include Canadian Rockies, Switzerland, and more than 30 years attending Summer Retreats at Spruce Lake.
