Shane Alfred Alan Rovang, of Rochester, MN passed away on Saturday, January 15, 2022.
He was born on March 9, 1972 at Lakenheath Air Force Base in Lakenhealth, England. Shane graduated from Albert Lea Senior High School in 1990 and later obtained his certification to become an Electrician. He started out his career at Albert Lea Electric and had been currently employed by Adair Electric in Rochester, MN.
Shane was one of those people that excelled at most everything he did. He grew up playing hockey and baseball and later enjoyed woodworking and riding his Harley motorcycle that he affectionately named Betty. Shane was fiercely devoted to his family, especially his children Jack and Rae. Whenever the family would get together you could always count on Shane’s sense of humor to make everyone laugh. He had one of those personalities that everyone was immediately drawn to and a smile that could quite literally light up a room.
He is survived by his children Jack and Rae, his mother and father Jack and Marilyn Rovang, his sister April Rovang, his niece Ava Johnson and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
A celebration of life will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Rochester Cremation Services, 1605 Civic Center Drive NW, Rochester, MN.

This news was very shocking. I worked with Shane many years ago at County Market. We all worked hard and had a lot of fun. Shane was always there with that contagious smile of his making it even more fun. We had a great bunch of kids working with us and I’ll never forget them. My condolences to his entire family. Rest in pease Shane you left us way to early.
Prayers and love to everyone

Marilyn, Jack and family. We were so sorry to hear about your loss of Shane. He was such a nice young man when we knew all of you. May you find some comfort in knowing there are many who hold you in their hearts and prayers.
My heart and prayers go out to my cousin and her family as they navigate through this difficult time. I was in disbelief when I heard the news. I will forever see Shane in my heart with a smile and that loud laugh.
He will always be a cherished friend and every time I think of you I will always smile. You were special.
I met Shane a few years ago on a snowmobile trip to the U P , he was a great guy to be with and we had a great time!! My sincere sympathy to the family
We go way back to when Shane was just a little guy in our neighborhood. He was such a doll! He was a great friend to our son Tony ( whom we lost at the age of 20 due to illness) I hope Tony was there to greet him and hold him there in Heaven. We were friends on Facebook and I always felt that being connected with Shane always kept me connected with Tony. He has a wonderful family. RIP dear Shane❣
Frank and I knew Shane for many years. We 1st knew him during his County Market years. He was a great guy. I always teased him about his ‘crispy hair’. He must have spent a fortune on hair products. Years went buy and the 1st thing I said to him when I saw his shaved head was ‘Hey what happened to your crispy hair’. He laughed. He is greatly missed.

Met Shane thru our daughter Karen while both were in high school. Watched him play hockey in Albert Lea and he traveled with us to a Viking football game with our family. Knew him and his family for many years. Gone to soon. Rest in Peace Shane.
I just found out about Shane’s passing tonight as I was about ready to share on Fb the craftsmanship of a few items I was fortunate to obtain from him from an old iconic tree that had been in many townspeople lives for generations. Well as it happens to all living things, it was time to give the tree another life… you see Shane was such a craftsman & felt the townspeople love for this tree, he was able to salvage some of the wood & make a few keepsake items from it…I was one of the fortunate to obtain a wine stopper & 2 gun replica pens. My heart goes out to his family & thank you Shane for giving me a piece of you & town history… you will live one through all who knew you… rest really my friend!
