Bernhard A. Rohe, 83, of Dumont, NJ, died peacefully on March 9, 2020.  Beloved husband of Christa (née Roetepohl).  Loving father of Steven (Jeneffer) Rohe, Christine Reilly and Susan (Roy) Clause.  Cherished grandfather of Chrissy, Michelle, Danielle, Eric, Andrea, Nicole and Allison.  Loving great-grandfather to Shoshanna.

Bernhard was born in Vechta, Germany to Agnes (née Sommer) and August Rohe.  He was the oldest of four brothers; Franz Rohe (deceased 2010), Mannfred Rohe (b. 1949), Englebert Rohe (deceased 2018). He was an electrician for 37 years with Local #3 IBEW, New York City.  He was a great outdoorman.  Bernie enjoyed sailing, fishing, hunting, skiing and snowshoeing.  He and Christa were consummate travelers. But he most enjoyed spending time at the “Farm” in upstate N.Y. with friends, family, and especially with his 7 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.
