He graduated from the Sunbury high school in 1895, and the same fall entered Susquehanna University, at Selinsgrove, Pa. He entered Bucknell College, at Lewisburg, Pa., in 1899, and graduated in 1900, after which he became connected with his father, Lloyd T. Rohrbach, in 1901 becoming a member of the firm of Lloyd T. Rohrbach & Sons, in the wholesale ice business. In 1902 he became secretary of the Sunbury Water Company and in 1909 assumed the duties of treasurer and general manager of that company, buying out his father's and brother's interest in both the water company and the firm of Lloyd T.

Socially Mr. Rohrbach is a member of Maclay Lodge, No. 632, F. & A.M.; of Williamsport Consistory, and of Irem Temple, A.A.O.N.M.S., at Wilkes Barre, Pa.

In 1911 Mr. Rohrbach completed his handsome residence on Market street, Sunbury, a Colonial mansion, and one of the most up-to-date homes in central Pennsylvania.
