lost a good friend. Rollin and I had a lot of good times growing up and running around together. He was our best man at our wedding. Rollin always had a smile on his face that I will never forget. He will be missed.

Rollin was a fantastic great uncle to Mark Lee. I have many memories of picnics we had at his moms farm, Grandma Monter. His laugh will forever be remembered.
