Rolly was special to so many of us, not least of all his Lerdo family and friends. You will not be forgotten.

As others have said before me, We may not have always agreed, but I sure as heck respected you Rolly more than you know. you were and will continue to be a volume of information for many yet to come to Mexico and even for those of us who have been here a while. I for one continue to read your many informative blogs and will for a long time to come. I hope your many informative blogs will always remain a part of and a resource for the eternity of MexConnect readers for years to come.
Thanks Steve for the notification and this post.

God Bless You My Friend,
Via con Dios
RIP
Robt65

Wow, about 15 years ago I first went to Rolly with questions about moving to Mexico. He was a go to source for me. 15 years later he was still the go to source. He gave of his knowledge and time freely. He was a "SAINT". I will miss our conversations.

No one was more patient, generous and kind than Rolly. He helped me and so many others so much. The world was made a better place with him in it. Thank you for everything Rolly!

I'm so sorry to hear this news! Rolly was simply the best, and this is great loss not only to MexConnect, but also to his many website followers, friends, students, and members of his extended Mexican family. Condolences to all, and may he rest in peace.

Both David and I are greatly saddened by the news of Rolly's passing.
As David wrote (to Rolly) several years ago now, "you have been a stallion of excellence in your moderation for MXC.
You have affected peoples' lives throughout the world. You have been fair, diligent, even-handed and worthy of thanks from each and every one of the Forum users - especially from myself and Tony."
Rolly was a true gentleman and a unique person.
He was definitely one of a kind and his insights and wisdom will be missed by everyone who ever came into contact with him. He changed many lives, and always for the better.
QEPD, amigo,
Tony / David

Rolly was one of the most interesting and generous people I've encountered anywhere, let alone Mexico. His site was invaluable to us when we moved here and he would never fail to answer specific questions put to him.

He lived a long and colorful life and will be sorely missed. RIP Rolly and thank you for everything you did for all of us.

He was so kind to me and my husband several years ago, such a good hearted person. I am sorry to never have met him in person. We are truly saddened.

God Bless him. He was very patient with my questions before I moved to Mexico.
His presence added a nice stability to the mix.
Sad to see him go.

This is definitely sad news. Even though I've been a member of this forum for a relatively short time, I grew to enjoy looking out for Rolly's posts. He was very helpful during my move down here, and I'll miss his presence on this forum.

Laura Simpson shared the following:
"I only knew Rolly through our communications about his earliest job in Denver working at KRMA-TV, Channel Six, in Denver. Rolly worked at KRMA, Denver's Educational Television Station, in its very first year on the air, 1959. Thanks, Rolly, not only for your work at KRMA, but for becoming a "virtual" friend of mine over the past 12 years. I always loved your FB postings! You seemed like a really great guy! Wish we could have met one another in person. RIP. (Photo is from KRMA archives, 1959) "

Truly saddened.
Rolly, you were such an inspiration to so many of us. Your kindness, your generosity, your down to earth qualities. Besides being such a resource to others, what I admired most about you was your ability to share your life with your mexican family. You have inspired me in particular to sponsor a mexican high school student in Ensenada through his university studies. You made your joy of giving ours.
Vaya con Dios amigo.
