Age 66 of Burnsville Charlie Rohrer died peacefully on Saturday morning, October 26, 2013, at his home surrounded by his four daughters and wife of 43 years, Donna Rohrer. Charlie was born on February 3, 1947, in Owatonna, MN to Clint and Helen Rohrer. He graduated from Owatonna High School in 1965. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota in two years which was followed by his doctorate from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry with high distinction. He went on to receive his Orthodontic Specialty Certificate and Master of Science Degree at the University of Minnesota Orthodontic Residency Program. In 1973 he opened his practices in Burnsville and St. Paul and treated thousands of patients in the communities he so loved. Charlie married the love of his life, Donna Black, on December 27, 1969.

Charlie and Donna have been residents of Burnsville and Apple Valley since 1973 and faithful and active members of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church for over forty years. Charlie practiced his faith daily in his personal and professional life. During his 38 years practicing orthodontics he was tremendously proud to have treated entire families and often multiple generations. Many of his patients became valued life-long friends. Charlie treated thousands of healthy and beautiful smiles. He took great pleasure seeing his patients in the community and reminding everyone to keep wearing those retainers!
