Dr. Steve (Jae Hoon) Roh, 44, formerly of Santa Clara, CA, went home to be with his Lord on May 30th, 2018, after a long courageous battle with heart and kidney disease.
Steve was born on March 2nd, 1974 in Seoul, South Korea, son of Robert Gwangoo and Sungsil (Cho) Roh. He was a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic West and practiced in that field for 14 years. His latest practice was at New Hope Chiropractic located in San Jose, CA.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon Beloli Roh, of Taunton, MA, father Robert Gwangoo Roh and brother Richard (Jae Ho)Roh, both of Santa Clara, CA and grandfather Chong Nahm (John) Cho of Seoul, South Korea, father and mother-in-law Ruth and Ron Beloli, grandmother in-law Lillian Black, Brother and Sister-in-law Joseph and Julie Beloli, Lauri and Jason Lemaire and lots of nieces and nephews all residing in the Taunton area.
Steve was known for his passion for sports; he diligently watched the 49ners, Giants, and Golden State Warriors. He was very active in playing poker and chess and loved to travel. He enjoyed time with friends and was very attached to his cat that he named ESPN. His favorite food was Korean Bulgogi and recently he could not get enough of vanilla ice cream and Ritz crackers. Steve was a member and worshipped at Calvary United Methodist Church, in San Jose, CA.
Steve had a blessed life and will be remembered to all who knew him as a kind and gentle soul.
