Rollie was one of my best friends. We shared a lot of good memories together. I am happy he is not in pain anymore but I am sad he isn't here for aunt lin, Lisa, and all who cared for and about him. He was one of the best men I have ever known. I am blessed and honored to be as close to him as I was. I love you rolls RIP bud.

We are so sad to have lost a good friend. We’ve had so many good times over the years with both Rollie and Linda and he will truly be missed. Our times together, especially in Florida, will never be forgotten.
