Hey Rolf, You must know what a handsome teenager Drake has become. :) He is still the same sweet boy and soon to graduate from High School! He misses you dearly...as we all do. If only we hadn't been so wrapped up in our own problems. So many little things remind me of you. Please know that you are still with us in our hearts and we will love you forever. -Kath

My thoughts have been so much about you. So many memories flood my mind. I feel so fortunate to have had you with us for the short journey of your life. If only I could hug you one more time. I miss you so much. Mom

Happy Birthday, Rolf. I have been going over my old camping log book and found many entries where we camped together. I will always cherish these memories I feel so fortunate to have shared them with you. Love Mom

Happy 44th birthday Pot Roast. Just yesterday i was telling Baden and Alyse how you were ALWAYS on time for everything and that we needed to be better about time management like Uncle Rolf. :) We sure miss you...

For my dear son who I miss so much. My thoughts go to you so often. Drake spent the weekend with us. He has grown so tall and has a girl friend. He is much more talkative. You would be so proud of him. I remember you at this age so well. Love, Mom

Rolf, Even after all this time, I still have a hard time believing you are gone. Always know that you are missed, my friend.

Happy Birthday, Rolf. You left us way too soon!
Posted by Donna Avery (Frostad) on 11th April 2013
I am thinking of you so often and missing you is not easier. Another birthday is here for you and what i would give to hold you in my arms one more time. I look at the pictures that have been posted and cherish them for the memories and good times. Camping season is here and I will miss you so much at the camp fire. I love you, Son. Mom
Posted by Donna Avery (Frostad) on 12th November 2012
For my "Pot Roast". A year has passed since you left us. I think of you so often in so many circumstances as memories float up. Some are regrets but mostly they are beautiful and often funny. Drake comes to visit often and is growing into a nice young man. The chimes you hung for me often gently ring and I like to think you are sending a hello. I do miss your bear hugs. Love you, Mom
Posted by Kathy Schroeder on 12th November 2012
I miss my brother...it is as simple as that. So many things remind me of him. I wish i could bring him back. Just to have one more day together. We would have so much to talk about. But he could come back for a day -he would spend most of it with Drake, his (our) pride and joy. And i would understand. As a parent, i would understand. I love you Rolf....
Posted by CC Lucas on 13th April 2012
Dear Drake. On your dad’s birthday I was oddly enough attending a funeral. The day before that a friend of my daughter was giving birth to her son Elijah. There are only 365 days in one year to be born or buried; the cycle of life continues and those we love live in our hearts forever. This week I will plant a spring bulb in memory of your dad, and celebrate his life with you - Blessings!
Posted by Jodi Crawford on 12th April 2012
Happy birthday Rolf. We miss you so very much. Life isn't the same without you. Love and hugs, Jodi :)
Posted by Kathy Schroeder on 12th April 2012
I was 5 when they brought you home from the hospital. You were born on Easter day so Mom and Dad just said the Easter Bunny brought you. We certainly thought that was possible because you were small enough to fit in a basket. My Baby Tender Love doll towered over you! Happy Birthday Rolf. I miss you dearly and hope you have found peace and happiness.
Posted by Sally Lofquist on 11th April 2012
Rolf….thinking of you today both because it’s your b’day and BOD day so your presence is doubly missed! You’d be running back & forth between the Board Rm to help with their mtg & the Cafe to ensure set-up for the Shareholders Mtg tomorrow was perfect. You are never far from our thoughts. We miss you! All the best to Drake & your wonderful family. Love, Sally
Posted by Marsha Heacox on 11th April 2012
Happy Birthday, Rolf!! Still missing you. I look in your office every day as I walk by. Somehow I feel you are still with us. Sending my love to you, Drake and your family. Love Marsha

Thinking of Rolf on this special day -- April 11th. We all miss Rolf here at Weyerhaeuser and remember him often, especially on special milestone days, like today! Sending our best wishes to all of Rolf's family, especially to Drake! Love, Dar

I wish I could have been there for your service today Rolf. I will never forget you...you will shine on forever in my memories!
Posted by Jason Plute on 17th December 2011
Rolf, I miss you. When things went sideways at work, your steady hand was so reassuring. Never did we have a problem you couldn't fix. Above all, I loved the talks we had about our boys. Drake, your father was so very, very proud of you. From soccer to dancing to girls and more, his passion was to guide you in the right direction. In that way, he'll always be with you. Farewell my friend.
Posted by Kim Concepcion on 14th December 2011
Rolf, we go way back to life at WWC, you have helped me many times pull off a successful event, you always came through! I will miss your forever smileand willness to help. My son and I enjoyed having you and Drake play wall ball in the fitness center on Take your Child to work day.
Posted by Brett Talbert on 13th December 2011
Rolf, you left us way too soon. You were my best friend in high school, we were inseparable and I will carry the memories of those fun times with me forever. You had an infectious passion for life, you were a great friend and although we hadn't talked for years I assumed we'd pick up where we left off some day. Sorry we didn't get that chance. I'll see you on the other side my friend.
Posted by Kristen Schwarz on 13th December 2011
So many memories Rolf when we were younger! I will never forget experiencing my first taste of steak over candlelight with you, Bret and Tina up at your mom's house. I am glad I got to see you and meet your son Drake, although it is hard to believe it was five years ago and I will never have the chance again :( Rest in peace my friend.
Posted by Tina Butler-Carter on 13th December 2011
My dear friend Rolf, I am so sorry you are no longer here for me to run up to and hug tight, you have been my friend since 7th grade. I love you dearly and will always cherish my memories of you, just as I have always cherished our friendship. I miss you buddy. I love you.
Posted by Vee VanderSanden on 1st December 2011
Rolf, I remember first working with you over 20 years ago. I've watched you "grow up" and "grew up" with you. You've been there for me in a pinch and I guess I always thought there'd be time enough to let you know how much you are appreciated. Suddenly, that time is gone. You leave behind many people who remember you well and your memory continues to live on ... With love...
Posted by Stephanie Williams on 30th November 2011
Rolf, thank you for blessing our lives. Your compassionate and dependable nature was a given; your gentle grin and twinkle in your eyes was so precious–and I’m not surprised–after all, you shared the same month & day of my Grandma’s birthday. I always new you were special. Drake, your dad was a phenomenal person who touched our hearts and will be so dearly missed. Take care & God Bless.
Posted by Beth Baum on 30th November 2011
Rolf, I can't tell you how much I will miss your smile and your talents. Everything you touched ran smoothly, calmly and with no fuss. You thought of everything, and your magic touch made all of our lives easier. Everyone in this building knew and loved you, and we will all miss you tremendously...
Posted by Denise Merle on 29th November 2011
I will greatly miss Rolf's smiling face, sense of humor and willingness to always help others. A great loss for all.....
Posted by Kevin Shearer on 29th November 2011
For the last three years Rolf, you and I sat next to each other & had daily long talks about the value of family & friends. You encouraged us with optimism, positive attitude and the sparkle in your eyes. Your love for Drake was never more evident than when you had the chance to bring him to work. He is your gift to those of us who remain behind. Thank you for being part of our lives.
Posted by Jill Freeman on 29th November 2011
Rolf, you were one of my all-time favorite people that I have ever worked with. You were always available to help anyone with anything, and always with a smile. I'm proud to have worked with you since our WWC days. Rolf, you taught me so much. Drake, just as you loved him, please know how much everyone else also loved your Dad. May God carry you and your family during this time.
Posted by MARYLOU HANSON on 28th November 2011
To the greatest dad. My grandson will always cherish his visits with Rolf and Drake.
Posted by Shannon Hughes on 28th November 2011
We've now been without Rolf's help at work for over a month now and nothing seems to operate as well as when he was around to anticipate needs and find creative solutions. He will continue to be missed here, but it's insignificant compared to the loss felt by his family. May his loved ones find comfort in memories of this great man.
Posted by Debbie West on 27th November 2011
Even though Rolf was my cousin, we never had the opportunity to meet. After reading these tributes and memories, I feel that I got to know my cousin and his passing is so very sad. This makes you realize how important and swift life is. I am so sad for your loss.
Posted by Sherry Nelson on 27th November 2011
Rolf…. I still imagine you in the hallway at work – smiling, joking, and taking care of us. Thanks for bringing me CD’s for an event and giving me a copy of one CD I liked – I will treasure. Conversations about your #1 priority – your son Drake. You have left us too soon so I pray your son and family find comfort in memories and know how special you are and will be so missed.
Posted by Susan Finn on 27th November 2011
Rolf, what an INCREDIBLE man. I remember when you arrived at Weyerhaeuser, all of the girls swooned & wondered who the new guy was. You always had a smile on your face & a twinkle in your eye. Thanks for being a friend & helping me move from my apt & for all of your incredible AV help over the years. There is no one like you & I know your son will follow your footsteps, Love You Dude!!
Posted by Alicia Hadley-Hanson on 23rd November 2011
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Rolf's passing. His laid back demeanor made him all the more easy to like. He was a great and passionate person who will be missed by many.
Posted by Sally Lofquist on 18th November 2011
I wonder how many of our conversations started with, “Hey Rolf, how do I ….?” Countless! But you always found the answer. The most amazing thing was how you knew what we needed before we even asked. We ALL noticed the sparkle in your eyes when Drake’s name was mentioned. To a wonderful friend and valued team member - I am so fortunate to have known you. I will always miss you.
Posted by Julie Merken on 18th November 2011
I keep expecting to see your smiling face coming around the corner. You always made me laugh. Our adventures on board trips were many. And I am forever grateful for you kindness...like staying behind to help me when you could of gone on a tour. You made work a joy. Loved hearing your Drake stories. What a lucky young man to of had you as his dad. You will always be missed.
