Rickey Robert Rolling (Rollo), aged 68, passed away on May 7, 2022 after a brief battle with cancer. The world lost a great son, brother, father, and friend.
Rickey was born on May 11, 1953 in St. Paul, MN. Ricky attended Mahtomedi High School before enlisting in the U.S. Navy from 1972-1975. Rickey spent years in Masawa, Japan while serving, and had many amazing stories of his time there.
When Rickey's time in the Navy was complete, he returned to Minnesota and became a highly successful car salesman. He was widely known as 'Rick the corvette guy.' Rickey married Vicki Thompson on September 7, 1991. Together they shared two children, Riley and Savannah, and built their home in Stillwater, Minnesota. Rickey enjoyed art, traveling, gardening, spending time outdoors, fishing, boating, and spending time with family and friends.
Rickey was a young soul and free spirit at heart. He was very outgoing and adventurous, able to make friends with anyone, regardless of who they were. It was impossible to be in a bad mood around him, as he would always find a way to make you laugh and smile. If you are wondering if you ever may have met him, you didn't, because you WOULD remember it.
Rickey is preceded in death by his father Robert, his mother Lois, and his sister Kelly. He is survived by his daughter Savannah and son Riley, mother of his children Vicki, his siblings Rob (Judy) Rolling, Pam (Gary), Rusty (Wendy), Rexford, several nieces and nephews, and countless friends. In true Rick fashion, a Celebration of Life to honor Rickey's life and Navy service will be held at Cozzie's Tavern & Grill at 11154 60th St N, Stillwater MN 55082 on May 27, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. Burial at Fort Snelling National Cemetery at a later date.
