Cheri and I have known Rol from our high school days, and kept a a very close and personal relationship with him since then. Words are not enough to express the type of person he was. A loving, caring, humorous, adventurous and a hard working individual that found a place in all of our hearts. His memory of his life, friends and encounters was incredible. Many of times we would reminisce about the many things we did when we were young. He had a wonderful gift of expressing his experiences through the three books that he authored. Cheri and I were very fortunate to have spent time with him in Prince George in 2007 and then I returned for two weeks in 2008 for a memorable fishing trip. We also had the privilege of speaking to him and having him smile the morning he passed away. A few minutes in time that will stay with us forever. A true friend of unspeakable character that we will never forget.

Rol was as honest and straightforward of a man as I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He shared his love and always tried to comfort others. His passion was his family. We either spoke or emailed weekly and he always had something new to boast about to me. We were all blessed to have been touched by him. Gail and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you.

Rol Wellman was my Uncle and my idol for as long as I can remember, All I ever wanted to do is be just like Him.
I love Him, and miss our phone calls sooo much.
Rol was a Gr8 jokester and loved to tease, and what a sense of humor!
He loved his April fools jokes till one year he took it to far with Gracie!
Boy did he catch hell for that.
This is a Man that would give you the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it.
It was an Honor and Privledge to know this Man and be able to call him my Friend!
Hey Buddy you will never be forgotten and I will miss you till I am able to see you again.
Love ya Rol,
And as you would say "SEE YA".

Rol came from a well known and respected family in Omaha, Ne. He graduated from Omaha Central High school in 1960. Rol was a two time state swimming champion who earned a scholarship to Iowa State University.
Rol was the head life guard at the private Happy Hollow Golf Club and I was a pool waiter. He met his future wife Nancy there. We shared many good times together.
Rol was a proflic writer of stories dealing with his experiences in the West. I looked forward to his emails as they made my day way more interesting.

My prayers and sympathy goes out to the Wellman family. I swan with Rol way back in the 50's at the Omaha Athletic Club. My dad also owned a commission company and were very good friends with his parents. God bless. Roberta Kiddoo Wiese

No words can express how much sadness I feel right now. I miss you so much dad. I am so sorry that I was not able to bring you home from the hospital. I know now that you are now home with mom. I will always cherish our time together. To know you was to love you. I will love you always. Thank you for always being there for me and for being my dad. You will always be my hero. I promise I will take good care of your Gracie girl.

Rol was my Father-in-law. He was a cowboy and I'm an Indian; how about that. Over the years, I learned many things from Rol. He taught me about determination, loyalty and courage. His joking was always good natured and his caring was limitless. He taught me how to catch salmon and I tried to tell him about welding. He was soft spoken at times but there was always a sense of quiet strength to him. He had a will of iron which any steel worker could appreciate. I will miss the old American...he was a good man and a great Father-in-law. Iskwayac Atamiskatowin. Your special son, Darrin.
