Rollin Lee Glawe was born Jan. 21, 1967 in Alta, to 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 Farmer's 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 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 and 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 was preceded in death by his parents, Roger F. and Myra (Blumentritt) Glawe; and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
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.
