Glenn Hersman Rohr

Glenn Hersman Rohr, 98, of Buckhannon, was finally reunited with the love of his life on Friday, October 1, 2021. He passed in the comfort of his own home and under the compassionate care of WV Hospice.

He was born in Lewis County on April 21, 1923, the only son of the late Olen and Sara(h) Ellen Hersman Rohr.

After traveling through several counties (to find a place where no one knew he was under 18) and ending up in Kentucky, Glenn was able to marry the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, Enora Clarice Waldeck Rohr. On October 7, 1940, they were united in marriage. They shared the ups and downs of life for over 73 years never wavering in their love and affection for each other. After Enora’s passing on May 18, 2014, Glenn longed to return to her company and has now been granted his wish.

In addition to his parents and loving wife, Glenn was greeted with open arms by one son, Rondel Glenn Rohr; and several brothers and sisters-in-law.

While most knew him as “Glenn” or “Mr. Rohr”, his favorite titles were “Dad”, “Grandpa”, and for the last 33 years most of his family called him “Pappy”. Forever cherishing their beautiful memories of “Pappy” are one son, Rodney B. Rohr and wife, Frani, of Buckhannon; five grandchildren: Terrinda Currence, Rhonda Canterbury, Angela Johnson, and Steven Rohr and wife, Vickie, all of Buckhannon, and Robert Rohr and wife, Rita, of Warren, OH; twelve great-grandchildren: Jessi, Cam, Sarah Ellen, Nathan, Abby, Faith, Alyssa, Lainey, Austin, Ashley, Collin, and Justin; ten great-great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild on-the-way; one brother-in-law, William V. Swisher of Buckhannon; several nieces and nephews; and three compassionate caregivers: Sally, Betty, and Jennifer.

Glenn graduated from Weston High School in 1940. He grew up helping his parents on the family farm and after his marriage to Enora, tended to their own farm. Glenn later transitioned from farmer to carpenter and his hard work paid off when he opened Glenn H. Rohr Builders. He and his team developed and built several neighborhoods and houses across Upshur and Lewis counties. Eventually, Glenn added Real Estate Broker/Appraiser to his portfolio and expanded his area of expertise opening a second business, Rohr Real Estate. He was a member of the Weston/Buckhannon Board of Realtors, WV Licensing and Certification of Real Estate Appraisers, and a past president of the North Central Home Builders. Glenn spent over 50 years in the real estate business always learning and taking classes and was a pioneer that paved the way for the procedures and processes in place today. He was also member of Chapel Hill United Methodist Church and a former member of Buckhannon Rotary Club and Lions Club.

Once returned home from a hard day’s work, Glenn enjoyed treating his wife to a night off from cooking and visiting local restaurant establishments. He also enjoyed reading books and newspapers in his recliner and “watching” the daily news and westerns. Sunday dinners at his and Enora’s home was the highlight of his week. He cherished the family gathering and loved watching his family grow with each year that passed. If anyone was fit for the title “Great Grandfather” or “Great-Great-Grandfather” it was Glenn. The joy he had with his grandchildren shines in each and every memory and he will be missed dearly.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Glenn’s honor to WV Hospice and mailed to 21 E Main St. Suite 301, Buckhannon, WV 26201.

Family and friends will gather for Visitation at Clutter Funeral and Cremation located at 21 Elnora Circle in Buckhannon from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, October 7, 2021, in the Clutter Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Stephen Engle officiating. Interment will follow at Friendship Cemetery in Jane Lew.

We, at Clutter Funeral and Cremation, are honored and privileged to serve the family of Glenn Hersman Rohr. Online condolences may be expressed at www.ClutterFuneralHome.com.
