We have many fond memories of Rollie from Gulf Breeze RV Resort in Gulf Shores, AL. It was always nice to talk with a fellow-NYer. It was a pleasure to sing with him in the chorus as well. He always passed on the Syracuse newspaper to us when he was done with it, too. Such a kind and gentle soul. We will miss him.

Oh my good buddy is in God's hands. He had the most amazing singing voice. Was always game for fun. I remember putting on his makeup for a Variety Show. We spent a lot of time on Gulf Shores beaches. I believe the park thought we had an affair going on, but my hubby doesn't like the beach. Rolly had and infectious smile and sense of humor. His smile lite up a room. Goodbye good friend, heaven has added a excellent voice to their choir. RIP Rolly. Love ya.
