Richard was born on October 13, 1922 to Louis and Barbara H. Rohde in Shreveport, LA and entered into rest on January 26, 2017 in Mansfield, LA. He was a loving son, brother, and uncle that enjoyed family and friends.

Wyman “Richard” Rohde was a member of Mims Springs Baptist Church since the age of 14. He was a proud graduate of the Class of 1941 from Logansport High School. Lifelong resident of Logansport, LA. Even though poor eyesight and blindness was always a challenge; it was never a defeat for him. In his younger years he enjoyed making memories that would later become stories to be told to whoever had time to be educated. Richard grew up in a time when classmates and neighbors were part of the family. Although he outlived many he very rarely forgot a name or voice.

He always enjoyed working with his hands from raising chickens, to gardening and carpentry work and mowing the yard. He loved to read and explore the world through books; sitting on the porch swing was one of his favorite things to do. Independence was one thing that he cherished and never gave up on!

Preceding Richard in death were his parents Louis and Barbara H. Rohde; sister, Betty Jane Rohde Savage and nephew, Jacky L. Dickerson.
 
Those left behind to cherish his memory are nephew James R. Savage and wife Linda, nieces Jere Guillotte and husband Jim, Teresa Dickerson; great nephews and nieces, Jennifer Wheless and husband JC, Julie David and husband Chance, Robert Guillotte, Sam Savage, Gregg Savage and wife Angel, Josh Savage; six great great nephews and nieces; and a host of cousins and friends.
