My deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Rollie at the Savannah River Site prior to retiring at the end of 2021. I remember him as a very pleasant person, one of the nicest people one could meet. You will miss his presence but will always have the memories of the events and moments that you shared with him. Keep him in your prayers.

I met Tito Rollie through Aries. I remember Tito Rollie and Tita Leobie were so kind to us when we first arrived in the US. He made us try his steak with Lipton sauce which was so good and invited us to join the Gala where we danced Philippine folk dances and propagated the culture. He made us feel welcome and not feel so lonely being away from families in the Philippines. He was so generous and a great guy to talk to. I enjoyed visiting for a few weekends in South Carolina because of Tito.
