Robert Rolison Obituary

On August 29, 2023 Robert W. Rolison, Sr. of Whitney, TX, was called home. Robert was born to Vera Loraine and Charles Douglas Rolison on October 22, 1941, the youngest of three children in Cleburne, TX. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by family and his favorite companion, Thor (his Boston terrier) and excited to be reunited with the love of his life Carlene Lewis.  They were married in October of 1962 and went on to have three children: Robert Rolison Jr., Kathryn Oliverio, and Steven Rolison. 

Robert served in two branches of the military, starting with the Coast Guard and retiring from the Air Force.  After serving his country in the military, he started another career working for Hilco from which he ended up retiring. He had a love for people and lit up every room he entered.  He was known for his sense of humor and generous spirit which he attributed to the love of his Savior.  His final days were filled with family and friends and tales of the amazing life he lived.  He left a note letting all of us know that he was ready and had truly lived an incredible life.

Robert is survived by his brother, (William Rolison); a brother-in-law and sister-in-law, (Daryl and Ann Hatley), three children: Robert Rolison {married to Gloria Rolison}, Kathryn Oliverio {married to Michael Oliverio}, Steven Rolison {married to Anne Rolison},nine grandchildren: Priscilla Vasquez {married to Joe Vasquez] Christopher Rolison, Carl Rolison {married to Rita Jean Rolison}, Amber Rolison, Samantha Martinez { married to Marcos Martinez}, Christian Oliverio {married to Madison Oliverio}, Robin Oliverio, Gabriella Oliverio, Abby Rolison and five great grandchildren: Jacob Vasquez, Ada Vasquez, Isabel Martinez, Violet Martinez and Medb Oliverio, with a sixth soon to arrive, and many cousins, nephews and nieces.
