Rogahn, Ronald P.
Passed away after a courageous battle with leukemia on Saturday April 7, 2018 at the age of 64 years . Beloved husband of Debbie (nee Gavin). Loving and devoted father of Adam (Crystal), Brooke (Kurt) Spitzner and Jamie (Alex) Koldeway. Proud Papa Ronnie of Bellamy and Drew Rogahn, Kendall, Aubree and Luke Spitzner and Claire Koldeway. Brother of Gerald (Diane) and the late James (Paula). Brother in law of Jeff (Judi), Steve (Deb) and Gary (Kellie). Son in law of Audrey Gavin.

A special thank you Dr. Laura C. Michaelis, Dr. Karen Carlson, Amber Essenmacher PA-C and all the nurses and staff on the 7th & 8th floors at Froedtert Hospital CFAC.

Ron will be remembered as the essence of a true gentleman who fought as a warrior in his battle against leukemia to the very end.

Ron’s laughter could fill a room and his kindness and respect to everyone he met made him one of a kind. His gifts and passion for life were shared with so many as a coach with the Special Olympics, a flag football referee with the Town of Vernon Recreation Department, a member of the Big Bend Vernon Lions Club, “Stache” with the Milwaukee Cream Citys Baseball Club, an umpire with the Alcoholics Anonymous Freedom League and a superfan to the Pewaukee Pirates 4th and 6th grade girls basketball teams. His 36+ years of dedicated service and never ending one liners at Poblocki Sign Company will be remembered by countless colleagues past and present.

To his family he is the ultimate role model making everyone he met feel special as an inspiring example of unconditional love.

Keep on Rockin’ in the free world, Ron!
