Luther M. Rollo Jr.
February 2, 1941 – May 2, 2018
Luther Monroe Rollo, Jr, 77, entered into the everlasting life with Jesus on Wednesday morning, May 2, 2018, peacefully in his sleep.
He was born in Pensacola, Florida on February 2, 1941 to Edna I and Luther M Rollo, Sr. He was a true country cowboy and always wore his pearl button western shirts. He was an avid horse lover and NASCAR fan. He attended seminary in Texas to learn more about the Bible and draw closer to our Lord. He was a carpenter for many years before working 30 years with BNSF railroad before retiring in 2005.
He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Frances, of 56 years; son, Rex R (Patricia) Rollo of Indiana; daughter, Rhonda R (Prentice) Smith of Texas; five grandchildren, Christopher, Dominik and Hannah Rollo, Gerald Smith and Kimberly Smith Redmon; three great grandchildren, Savannah Rollo, Emma and Johnathan Redmon; his sister Wilene Rollo of Arizona; his very dear brother-in-laws, 'Joe' (Charlotte) Joseph and Donnie Joseph and sister-in-law 'Gail' Forehand Stephens.
Daddy taught our family valuable lessons we will use in our lives daily. He loved playing the guitar, fellowship with friends and family, westerns, Fritos, original Pringles, pork rinds, ham sandwiches, and sweet iced tea.
Funeral services will be held at Bayview Fisher-Pou Chapel on Monday, May 7, 2018. Visitation will began at 1:00 pm followed by the service officiated by Mike Chappell.
The family would like to thank the Regency Hospice staff for taking such great care of him and being a comfort to us.
Sleep tight, Daddy, see you when the roll is called up yonder. Love you.
