NORMAN MAX ROEHL

Norm peacefully passed away on June 24, 2018 in Bellevue at the age of 94. He was born August 23, 1923 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to Max and Erna (Spengler) Roehl. He graduated from Oshkosh High School and Whitworth University. Norm was a B-24 pilot with the Air Force during World War II. Upon leaving the Air Force, he worked for a variety of businesses, including Kimberly-Clark, Centennial Mills and Continental Baking Company. After spending years in the private sector, Norm found his true passion – teaching. He returned to college and received his degree in education. For 24 years he taught fifth and sixth grade at a number of grade schools in the Bellevue area. He loved working with and teaching his students.

Norm loved his family and friends and had faith in the Lord. He also loved spending summers at the family cabin in Priest Lake, Idaho and winters in Mesa, Arizona. He was a passionate fisherman, loved Golden Retrievers, and was a UW Husky, Green Bay Packer, and Seattle Seahawk fan. Norm is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Jan and Fritz Anderson of Denver, Colorado; and his son, Bob, of Boise, Idaho.

He is preceded in death by his father, mother, and beloved wife, Sylvia (Sly).

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to The Salvation Army or the American Heart Association.
