Beautiful service and nice job by the sons. Our memory of Patrick was when he toasted Colleen and Taylor at their wedding. He was obviously a proud father. Our thoughts and prayers to Colleen and the entire Rohrer family. Dale & Karen Lortie

Dear Joan & Family, Puddy and I have been friends for over 40 years. I have so many great memories of us playing softball, shuffleboard, racquetball, deer hunting, R & R Parties, that I can't begin to count. He was a guy who didn't do anything half-assed. He lived each day to the fullest and made everyone want to be a part of his world. I made sure that he would attend my Christmas parties because he provided the entertainment with his charisma. He truly was bigger than life and I will miss him dearly. The world was a better place with him in it. RIP my brother!

Kevin…I am so sorry (and so deeply saddened) about the passing of your Dad; and I am thinking of you and your family. It seems like just the other day I was ref’ing your games at St. Joe’s admiring your Dad as a Coach. What a wonderful person your Dad was. I cherish the times that I would see your Dad at and about over all the years. Every encounter with your Dad was personal and meaningful; and I will miss him tremendously. Please know that you and your family (especially your Mom) are in my prayers at this time. Forever hold close all of the many (many, many) wonderful and happy memories you have of your Dad. He was special!

I knew Pat in the 1980s/1990's when I was a loan officer with Associated Bank . Great guy and helped us greatly with our consumer leading department lending operations by providing credit reports for loan applicants. Also helped in collecting some of our loans that defaulted. My condolences to you and the entire family.

We were shocked to hear this awful news. Our best memories were celebrating Xavier basketball games with Jer & Dan. Pat's great sense of humor always made these games and celebration before or after so much fun. Know that your family is in our hearts, thoughts and prayers this Christmas season and after. We are in Tennessee for an early Christmas with Heather and the kids and regret not being able to come to the visitation and Mass.

So sorry for your loss, Puddy always had a good thought and a quick wit. Even after forty years he still called me “weed hopper”. Jim & Lisa Hemes

I had the JOY of being Pat's hairdresser for over 2 decades. He spoke highly and lovingly of his family each at every visit. He had a gregarious personality and really enjoyed joshing with other clients in the salon ... so personable. I will miss our visits very much. My thoughts and prayers have been with Pat's family and close friends since I found out he passed. The void will be huge but the memories are plentiful and sweet. Thinking of you all.
Jeff 'Zock' Zachow left a message on December 15, 2021:
Puddy was a great boss. I met him when he was the manager at the Old Post Office in Neenah. After that I ran into him all over the place. Truely a great guy. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.

Pat was simply a magnificent person. His big smile and personality were exceeded only by his heart. My thoughts and prayers go out the Rohrer family.

I am so sorry for loss. I was a golfing buddy of Pat…and I always looked forward to it. Truth be told, we always ripped on one another, but realized it was all in good fun. He was truly a friend and I will miss him dearly. Such a special man…
