Roger Gehring



Roger Lew Gehring, 71, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side on Wednesday November 8, 2017 at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet. He was born on October 31, 1946 in Bremerton, Washington to the late Fred C. and Ruby C. Lang Gehring.

A jovial and fun loving person, Roger loved to laugh, play pranks and have a good time. He enjoyed playing pool, playing card games, and especially loved his family. Many who had the honor of knowing Roger, would describe him as generous and having a heart as large as his stature. He will forever be remembered as a loving husband, best friend to his sons, caring father, brother, uncle and friend.

Left to cherish his memory, is his beloved wife of 34 years, Sharon Gehring of Murrells Inlet; his daughter, Kali Gehring of Endicott, New York; his twin sons, Trevor and Travis Gering both of Murrells Inlet; his handsome grandson, Bentley Carter Gehring; his brothers, Howard Gehring and his wife Jean of Endicott, New York & Doug Gehring of Maitland, Florida; his twin sister, Kathleen Lorch and her husband of Silverdale, Washington as well as a large, loving, extended family, and supportive friends and neighbors.

A Celebration of Roger’s life will be held privately by the family at their convenience.
