Deb, I'm really sorry about your dad. Its just as hard losing the second parent as it is the first.

Bobby was part of the Michigan Gang who trekked all the way out to Montana for our wedding 15 years ago. Even the band commented that "those folks from Michigan sure know how to have a good time!"
When we heard the news of his passing we hauled out that old wedding album and are comforted by seeing his great smile in the photos. Bobby lived life to the fullest -- a good lesson for us all to take to heart in his memory.

Bob was a great guy to work with at the St. Joe Division and I and many other electricians will miss him but remember him fondly. Rest in peace in God's kingdom.....My sympathy to Bob's family, and Nancy......Stan Bennett

It is with sadness that I learned of Bob's passing. Having grown next door to the Roloff's, I have many fond memories of Mr. Roloff...at cub scouts, pitching baseballs to son, David, and me...and just seeing him relax after work...sitting outside on the picnic table enjoying a quiet sunny evening. I also remember his "saving" our bulldog who got her head stuck in a wooden beanbag toss game...and how he rescued me after a headlong fall from a tree house
