Skyler Rohde, age 21, of Roscommon, died on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, at his home and in the presence and comfort of his family.
Skyler was born May 9, 1999 in Grayling, the son of George and Andrea (Baldwin) Rohde. “Skyman”, as he was known, loved the outdoors and could frequently be found snowboarding, hunting, or driving a four-wheeler or side-by-side. He enjoyed working on cars with his dad in their garage and had a passion for golf. Most of all, Skyler enjoyed spending time with his friends and family.
In Skyler’s own words, “I am just another person that was born into the world. I am someone that was born for a reason and I am here to do big things… A few years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer and that led to having my right arm amputated. After going through that, it has taught me you can do anything if you put your mind to it and to live every day like it’s your last.” As Skyler also liked to say, “F$@# cancer!”
Skyler will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He is survived by his parents, George and Andrea; siblings, Jessica (Justin) Green and Haley (Stephen) McNary; grandmother, Jan Baldwin; niece Jordyn Green; his dachshund, Duke; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Bud and Ella Mae Rohde, and Thomas Baldwin.
Family and friends will gather for a visitation at Wagner and Walsh Funeral Directors on Friday, March 26, 2021 from 3 to 7PM.
The family prefers memorial contributions be made in Skyler’s name to the South Branch Township Fire Department, Camp Sunshine, Believe in Miracles, or Rainbow Connection.
Skyler’s family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to COOR, Forest Dunes Golf Club, the South Branch Township Fire Department, and to the community of Roscommon for their care and support over the years.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Wagner and Walsh Funeral Directors, Roscommon.
