Charles E. Rohde

August 16, 1939 — April 20, 2024

It is with heavy hearts, we announce Charles "Chuck" Rohde passed away on April 20, 2024, after many months of suffering. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend. 

Chuck was born on August 16, 1939, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He graduated from West Division High School, served in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1962. He worked for many years at Briggs & Stratton and Waukesha Motors. After moving to Las Vegas in 2000, he worked for approximately 20 years bartending at the 7-11 Bar & Grill, where many friends would stop and see him when vacationing in Las Vegas. 

Chuck was a man known by many for his fun-loving nature, generosity and great sense of humor. He was one who was always game for anything and was always there for others, whether to lend a helping hand or offer a place to stay. Underneath the jokes and laughter, Chuck was a very hard-working, caring individual and his family meant everything to him. 

Among the things he cherished in life were his children and grandchildren, which he considered his greatest accomplishments. His family was his world, and his commitment to his beloved wife, Vicki Rohde, was an embodiment of the type of love many people strive for. 

Chuck had an enduring fondness for the game of golf. He was often found golfing with his wife and sons. He liked to play different courses, some include the Sea Ranch in California and Durango Hills in Las Vegas. He really enjoyed playing video poker at local spots like Molly's, Jackpot Joanie's and The Bar. Chuck was a loyal fan of the Green Bay Packers. He loved music particularly the songs "If You Don't Know Me by Now" and "Jack and Diane." He enjoyed watching shows like Law & Order SVU and NYPD and movies like Pretty Women and the Equalizer series. He was strong advocate for ASPCA, Make a Wish and Vets, causes he deeply cared about. 

Some of Chuck's favorite memories include: Family camping trips up north with some of his siblings and their kids, where Chuck would tell his infamous ghost story of the Meeker Hill Monster, trips to Hawai'i, Oregon to visit family, the Redwoods, Alcatraz, the Grand Canyon with the grand-kids. His favorite memory, which had always held a special place his heart, was vacation to Cancun, where he went deep-sea fishing and he got his first massage on the beach, which he loved. He also loved to entertain at his home, where he would have get-togethers with family and friends, which usually ended with a poker game. 

Chuck is survived by his wife Vicki Rohde; his children, Eric Rohde, Greg (fiancée Jeannie) Schilke, Christopher (Kathy) Rohde, Bradley Rohde and Kristine (Rick) Santi; his grandchildren, Michaela Rohde, Jennifer Schilke, Bradley Rohde, Thomas Rohde, McKenzie Rohde and Cole Rohde; great grandson Martin; sister-in-law Diane Rohde and many loving nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his granddaughter Caitlin Schilke and siblings, Morris Rohde, Jean Rohde, Florence Wollert, George Rohde Jr., Gerald "Cotton" Rohde, Jack Rohde and Elizabeth (Betty) Rohde. His memory will continue to live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He will be deeply missed but not forgotten. 

At Chuck's request, there will be no services. Details for a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
