Richard J. Rohaley

January 25, 1985 — September 13, 2020

Richard J. Rohaley, age 35, of Sylvania, Ohio passed away September 13, 2020 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born January 25, 1985 to Stephen and Debra (Lusky) Rohaley in Euclid, Ohio. Rich graduated from Lake Elementary, Shore Junior High and Mentor High School before attending the University of Toledo and earning a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree in 2008 and also a Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2011. On August 16, 2008, Rich married Deidre Collette in Christ the King Catholic Church in Toledo. Rich had been a member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Mentor, Ohio before moving to the Toledo area and joining Christ the King Catholic Church. Throughout life, he drew his strength from his faith. Early in high school, he wrestled and played football. At the University of Toledo, Rich was a member of the Student Wellness Awareness Team and the Alpha Zeta Omega Pharmacy Fraternity. As a Boy Scout, he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, scouting’s highest achievement. Rich purchased Aring’s Compound Corner in 2013 and applied the tremendous personal skills gained from his work in community pharmacy at Walgreen’s to the operation of a compounding pharmacy. Away from work, his passions were family time, video games, fishing, making people laugh and smile, and his Cleveland Browns. An easy-going person, Rich seemingly could not be embarrassed. He would always light up the room and become the center of the party. Rich had the rare talent of making a friend anywhere and would get people involved, not wanting to leave anyone out of the fun. Those who knew Rich best would describe him as being positive, courageous, patient and passionate.

Rich is survived by his wife, Deidre, daughter, Novalie, parents Steve and Debbie Rohaley, sister, Sarah (Dan Szymczak) Rohaley and brother, Stephen (Kristen) Rohaley.
