Edvin Alfred Rohlack

December 12, 1937 - March 15, 2020
Friday, March 20, 2020

Edvin Alfred Rohlack passed away March 15, 2020 in San Marcos, Texas, after a long fight with Huntington’s disease.  Ed was born on December 12, 1937, to Mary and Ernest August Rohlack near the small German farming community of Thrall, Texas.  There he met and eventually married his high school sweetheart, Hermania (Mamie) Winter.  Through much patience and love, they were married for 62 years.  

Edvin graduated college with two Bachelor’s degrees and a Master’s degree.  Ed and Mamie road tripped not once but twice to Alaska, once for his wife’s teaching job and secondly for his first teaching job.  Edvin was a man of many trades and talents; teacher, church counselor, painter, leveler, general contractor, business owner, city councilman and then a teacher again.  The effect that he had on several generations of students can still be seen today.

Edvin is preceded in death by his parents, Ernest and Mary, 4 brothers and 3 sisters, son, Hugh and daughter, Kiana.  Edvin is survived by his loving wife, Mamie, sons Korey, Karlton, Kristopher and his wife Lianet; brother Ernest Rohlack and sister Selma Lange.  Son-in-law, Ricky Lock, is the father of Ed’s grandson Landon Lock, granddaughters Lauren Lock-Bollier and Laci Lock-Gescheidle.  Last but not least is great-grandson Mason Cooper Bollier (AKA:  MC Hammer).

We would like to extend our thanks to the many friends that helped Edvin and Mamie continually see each other once Ed moved to the various nursing homes.

It seems Edvin had really bad timing in his death.  Due to current worldwide circumstances, memorial services are postponed until sometime in the near future when friends and family can congregate.  A notice will be given in the future.

Arrangement in care of Pennington Funeral Home, San Marcos, Texas.
