5 yrs gone by just learn of your passing rol. I am so sad as if it happen yesterday. I will miss u rol rip

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...

Love and miss you Grandpa!! You are amazing and funny, and always made my day:)

Hope you and Mom are fishing right now!

I miss you so much Pa... I miss our weekly talks. I talk to you everyday now but its just not the same... I hope I have taken care of all your wishes when you were gone. I hope my kids love me as much as I love you one day... See ya...:-(

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...
