Sorry I couldn't find anything about his parents, or locate him in the earlier censuses. This might be him in a directory listing in 1915, possibly living with his mother or 1st wife:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta) about Vere H Roher
Name:        Vere H Roher
Residence Year: 1915
Street Address: 129 XX - D
Residence Place: Kalispell, Montana
Occupation: Barber
Publication Title: Kalispell, Montana, City Directory, 1915
--Vere H Roher, barber Star Barber Shop, r 129 W 2d
--Mrs Kathleen Roher, dressmkr 129 W 2d. r same

Later on he shows up in directory listings with Mae, May or Mary in Vancouver, Wash (1918), Olympia, Wash (1921-1934).

This may be him in an even earlier listing in 1913:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta) about Vere Roher II
Name:        Vere Roher H
Gender: M (Male)
Residence Year: 1913

--Vere H Roher, r 235 4th av W
--Kathleen Roher Mrs, dressmakr 235 4th av W, r same

Sorry that's all I could find. Hope this helps. Annie
