On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, Ronald Maurice Rohan, age 80, resident of Daphne, AL, loving husband, and father of 5 sons, joined his beloved family and friends in Heaven. He was born in Montgomery, AL to William and Alva Ruth Rohan. In 1978, he married the love of his life, Gwen Vignes and together they raised their 5 sons, Blaine, William Jeffrey, Shan, Toby and Spencer in Louisiana and Alabama.
He served in the Army National Guard and retired from the Alabama Dept. of Transportation as a civil engineer. He was always the jokester and the life of the party and was always the last one to leave! He enjoyed travelling all over the world with Gwen, playing with his grandkids, golfing with his Timber Creek buddies, kayaking and hanging out with his 3 Circle small group friends, and watching his Alabama Crimson Tide with his sons! He knew and loved the Lord and faced death fearlessly because he knew he would join Jesus in Heaven in the room prepared for him!
He was preceded in death by his father, William Rohan, mother, Alva Ruth Rohan, brothers, Fred Rohan and Wylie Rohan; sisters, Delores Norman and Ruby Powell; nephews, Larry Rohan, Barry Rohan, Doug Norman, Wayne Norman and William Alexander Ramirez, and close friends, Albert Cornett, David Cornett, Hookie Lewis and Ken Raglind, all of whom he loved dearly!
He will be greatly missed by his surviving family and many, many friends; wife, Gwen, sons, Blaine, William Jeffrey, Shan, Toby, Spencer; daughters-in-law, Jennifer, Rachael, Casie, Mendy and Bethany; his 7 grandchildren, Brittany Jesson, Noah (Regan) Rohan, Isabella Rohan, Bryce Woodward, Hunter Rohan, Jacob Rohan and Sophie-Kate Rohan; his great-granddaughter, Penny Jesson; his much loved brother, Gilbert Rohan; all of his in-laws and his many, many nieces, nephews and friends.
The celebration of his life will be on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at 11AM at 3 Circle Church, 10274 State Hwy. 104, Fairhope, AL. Visitation will be from 10AM– 11AM.
