Rollie and Karen were united in marriage on August 19th of 1969 and spent the next 50 years faithfully by each others side.
Rollie had a great love for the outdoors and everything it had to offer.
Many a memory was made together as a family from days spent cutting wood to endless hours with the kids and his dogs running coon, deer hunting and fishing. From fun days of mud bogging, to days at the race track, where good times were always had by all.
During the winter seasons Rollie invested many hours working with farmers and land owners getting the trails ready for that years snowmobiling adventures with family and good friends. He was his Granddaughter's Tia and Tessa Martin's "Biggest Fan" - every Wednesday night going to the Horse Shows that the Blackhawk Saddle Club put on running barrels and poles under the lights in Soldiers Grove. Truth be told, that through every passing season, Rollie's greatest joys were spending time with the ones that he loved, his family and close friends. Rollie will be forever and always missed.
