The Guest Book is expired.

Hank was born March 9, 1929 to Martin Otto and Katharine
Louise Rollert in Kansas City, Missouri, and passed away with
family by his side on Friday, September 29, 2017 in Littleton, CO.
A private graveside service with military honors will be held at
Littleton Cemetery, and a Celebration of Life Memorial Service
will take place on Saturday, October 14, at 1:00 p.m. at First
Presbyterian Church of Littleton, where Hank was a member
for 55 years. Hank was born and lived in the home his parents
built in KC, MO. He was an Eagle Scout in Troop 76, graduated
from Southwest High School, and attended Baker University,
where he met the only love of his life, Dorothy Joan "Dottie"
Beeker. After graduation, Hank and Dottie married on February
10, 1951, and Hank worked for his father-in-law in welding
and ironwork. Hank enlisted in the Army and served his country
proudly in the Korean War. His call of duty ended in 1953.
Hank and Dottie moved to Littleton, CO during the summer
of 1959 for Hank to work in Business Management on the Titan
ICBM program for the Martin (Marietta) Company. In 1965,
Hank began working in Marketing for Sperry Univac, where he stayed until 1972,
when he started his own business, Rolling and Associates. Hank's business was the
driving force in converting and automating public libraries' author, title and subject
card catalogs and circulation control systems. He enjoyed employing both of his sons
in the family business after their college graduations. After closing his company,
Hank worked as a Quality Process Manager for JD Edwards and AT&T until his retirement
in 1996.
In 1962, Hank and Dottie joined First Presbyterian Church of Littleton, where
Hank's deep faith and love of Christ called him to become an
active and faithful member, Elder, Moderator and leader of
numerous committees and groups. In 2001, Hank and Dottie
had a renewal of vows ceremony at the church to celebrate
their 50th wedding anniversary, and they were thrilled that
all of their children and grandchildren participated in their
"wedding". Their favorite Bible verse was taken from 1 John 4:7,
"Love one another", and they truly set that example for everyone
who knew them. Their home of 58 years was always welcoming
and full of love and laughter. Hank loved being with his family,
traveling with his wife, meeting with friends, being an active
member of the Littleton community, and making people laugh
with his wonderful sense of humor. He was known for his quiet
strength, ambition, intelligence, infectious smile, knucklebusting
handshake, joke telling, and for always having a sparkle
for life in his eyes.
Hank was preceded in death by his wife of 51 years, and
brother, Moe Rollert of Colorado Springs, CO. Hank is survived
by his sons Hank Rollert, Jr. and wife, Ann, of Broomfield, CO, Seth Rollert, and his
wife, Linda, of Centennial, CO; daughters Kathie Summers, and Karen Meersman
and her husband Don, both of Littleton, and Hank's 17 grandchildren, and six greatgrandsons.
Hank is also survived by his sister, Johanna Langston of Spring, TX, and
numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, lifelong friends, and USAF extended family
members.
