Robert Lee Rohne, age 75 of Lyle, Minnesota, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Friday February 13, 2015 at Adams Health Care Center. Robert was born January 31, 1940 to Arthur and Alice (Peterson) Rohne in Austin, MN. He attended Pine Hurst Country School at 4 years old and graduated Valedictorian from the Lyle High School in 1957, then attended 1 year at Luther College for Veterinary Medicine. Robert married Mary Lou Fletcher on October 1, 1966. To this union 3 children were born. He was a dairy farmer his whole life, served in the National Guard for 6 years and was on the Stacyville Creamery Board for a number of years. He served as a Nevada Township 4-H leader and was a softball coach for many years. Robert was a member of Six Mile Grove Lutheran Church. He enjoyed being a member of many bowling leagues and even bowled at the Adams Nursing Home and had many strikes. He also enjoyed playing horseshoes, cards and pool with family and friends. His passion was collecting toy tractors (mostly red ones) and traveling. His favorite trip was to Connecticut to see Troy, Amy and Harry. No cows to worry about – and he had a really good time. Robert’s favorite TV shows were westerns and sports. On June 2, 2013 he had a brain aneurism and was convalescing at the Adams Health Care Center where he put up a really good fight for his life. Robert will be missed by all who knew him.
