Read more about the life story of Larry and share your memory.
Larry Kent Rollins, 62, passed away peacefully after battling cancer at his home in Montgomery, Alabama on Wednesday, August 23, 2023.
Larry was born on December 5, 1960, in Houston Texas, and moved to Montgomery in 1967, where his parents both served at Maxwell Airforce Base.
Larry graduated from Sidney Lanier High School in 1978 and had a long career in the grocery business, rising from stocker to Produce Manager to General Manager over his career. He loved animals and seemed to have a GPS that pointed him to abandoned pets that needed homes. He had a wicked sense of humor and never forgot a birthday.
To his granddaughter, he was a most beloved “Grand-père” who always sent the best Hot Wheels and collectible coins, and made her laugh. He cherished his many friendships and was particularly grateful to his neighbors, Mr. Winston Reed, who helped him during a difficult time, and Ms. Debbie Capistran, who was a rock to him during his illness.
He is survived by his children, Holly Rollins Ostrout and Z. Rollins; his granddaughter Theola Ostrout; and his soulmate Lisa Olszewski. He is also survived by 6 siblings: James Rollins, Jeannie Rollins Floyd, Judy Rollins Kny, Glen Vogel Rollins, Eddie Rollins, and Jeff Rollins. He is also survived by his two beloved dogs, GiGi and Lupe, and his two beloved cats, Electra and Ziva, all of whom are now being cared for by friends and family.
He is preceded by his parents, Robert Roland Rollins and Marie Monk Rollins, and older brother, Roland Rollins.
During the last moments of his life, he was surrounded by his loved ones. His transition was peaceful and filled with love.
A celebration of life will be held on September 16th, 2023 at the Shakespeare Festival Dog Park at 10am; dogs welcome and encouraged!
Those unable to make it are encouraged to remember Larry as you watch the Auburn game that he was so looking forward to seeing this season.
