Rollin Lee Glawe was born Jan. 21, 1967, in Alta, the son of Roger F. and Myra (Blumentritt) Glawe. Rollin attended school in Aurelia, and graduated from Aurelia High School with the Class of 1985. While in high school Rollin was proud to be part of the Future Farmers of America organization and had served as its president.
Following graduation, Rollin attended Iowa State University and later returned home to farm the land he loved so much. Along with farming, he raised hogs and always took great pride in his work.
Rollin was united in marriage to Leah Davis on July 18, 1987, at the RLDS Church in Cherokee. They were blessed with two children, Dalton and Dawson. They made their home in Aurelia for several years and later moved to Le Mars in 2008.
Rollin liked to say he was a member of "The Church of God." He felt being a good person, talking to God, was all he needed to maintain his faith. He spent his last days growing closer to his Savior.
His pride and joy in life are his boys, Dalton F. (age 11) and Dawson L. (age 7). He loved them "to the moon and back."
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 24 years, Leah, of Le Mars; his sons, Dalton and Dawson, at home; two brothers, Curtis Glawe and his wife, Lori, of Aurelia and Ron Glawe and his wife, Lori, of Worthington, Minn.; two sisters, Deb Nelson and her husband, Mike, of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Bonnie Tebrake and her husband, Jon, of Carroll; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Roger F. and Myra (Blumentritt) Glawe and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
He left us too young, but we take comfort in the knowledge he is with God and He Is Alive.
