Dennis Kay Rollins


Dennis Kay Rollins, 61, died March 11, 2016. He was born to Sheldon Levoid Rollins and Duella Irene Twitchell in Evanston.

He married Roberta Richins Feb. 14, 1976 in the LDS Provo, Utah, Temple. Dennis graduated from Green River High School where he was active in music, football, basketball, and track and field. He attended Brigham Young University and Western Wyoming Community College, worked at General Chemical, Questar and QEP. While employed with General Chemical, he accepted educational opportunities to advance his career in maintenance, welding, and instrumentation.

Dennis served a two-year mission to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and worked to keep his fluent Portuguese speaking abilities to the end of his life. He was active in the LDS church and served in many callings.

He enjoyed coaching baseball and teaching Tae Kwon Do, having earned his second-degree black belt. He was an honest and honorable man, a man of his word. He was very trustworthy and anyone that knew him knew that his word was his bond.

Dennis was a great husband and father. Everything he did revolved around his family. He always found time to attend his children's school and sport activities.

He is survived by sons Justin Rollins and wife Rachelle, Michael Rollins, Paul Rollins and wife Kyla; by daughters Kara Huff and husband Todd, Aimee Holt and husband David; sisters Linda Knight and husband Allen, Janice Knight and husband Ken, Maureen Vehar and husband Bob, Barbara Killpack and husband Gary, Kayleen Leonard and husband Gary; brother Linne Rollins and wife Betty, adopted brother Jim Gazdik and wife Naoma, and 15 grandchildren.
