"Bobby." Brother of Shirley Rothaar Green, Mary Lou Sgro, Patricia A. Gairing, and James J. Rothaar. Son of Elizabeth & Peter Rothaar.

Bobby was born with the seams of his skull fused, preventing his brain from growing and leaving him profoundly disabled. His parents were advised to institutionalize him. They flatly refused, kept him at home and cared for him themselves, integrating him fully into the family and giving him a quality life until he succumbed to his illness at the age of 14.

Bobby is buried in an unmarked grave, under his great-grandfather's stone.
