Randall Rolley

Obituary of Randall M. Rolley

Randall Mark Rolley was born January 24, 1952, in Tupper Lake, NY. His parents were Curtis and Madeline Rolley and lived on McLaughlin Ave in Tupper Lake. Randall was one of nine children. A lot of people will remember him known as “Bimbo” a nickname given to him by his mother, because of a song he used to love as little boy. Randall and his family were always involved in the Catholic Church, and he was at one time an altar boy. Randall met his wife Martha when they were young teenagers in high school, he was in love at first sight he would say. In high school Randall played football, #79. He enjoyed playing the game he loved and traveling with his teammates. Randall graduated from Tupper Lake High School in 1971. After high school Randall attended North Country Community college then worked at Elliot Hardwood Co. He and Martha moved in together, and married June 16, 1973. They lived at 73 Main Street before purchasing their forever home, in 1977, at 51 Water Street in Tupper Lake. In 1978 they welcomed their first born, a son, Nicholas Rolley. Four years later in 1982, Jessica was born. Randall worked hard and provided his family with a great life. His children never wanted for nothing. Randall enjoyed music and had many hobbies throughout his life. Randall liked to work on his house, paint, go fishing and craft. He was always willing to lend a hand and help anyone out who needed it. Randall was a member of the Tupper Lake Volunteer rescue squad for more than two decades. Randall worked many jobs throughout his life, working from a very young age. Most notably, Randall worked at the Veneer in Tupper Lake for many years eventually going to work at Sunmount as a Developmental Disability Aide until he retired in January 2014. Randall was very excited to not just retire, but to spend time with his first-born Grandson, Noah Randall Johnson. Noah was Papa’s “little man” who could do no wrong, and they had many adventures together. Randall and Martha were the best grandparents any child could ever ask for. They would spoil him not only with love but provided him with necessities and an abundant number of toys. He made it a point to visit with Noah every single day. They brought Noah and the family on vacations, Kalahari waterpark was one of his favorite places and he acted like a young man, riding slides, and enjoying the lazy river! Papa loved to bring Noah to the playground, and out for walks. Noah never went without. In Nov 2019, his second grandson Owen Johnson was born, and he was the apple of his Papa’s eye! He loved his grandchildren and loved to provide for them. Randall and Martha remained together, until death do, they part. Martha passed away January 16, 2020, to say he missed her terribly is an understatement. They are together again. Randall was predeceased by his brother Ward, his father Curtis, mother Madeline, his brother Michael, sister Sandra and Diane. Randall is survived by, his brother Curtis (Scott) his wife Linda, sister Roseanne, Patricia, and Joanne, his two children Nicholas Rolley, his wife Amy Rolley and Jessica Rolley (Johnson) and her two children, Noah, and Owen. Randall had said over the past two years for no one to be upset over his departure from this earth when the time came. His soul will be reunited with Martha, his soulmate and they will spend eternity in heaven together. Although Randall wasn’t involved with the church as often as he wanted, he was still a very spiritual man. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Tupper Lake fire department and Tupper Lake rescue squad are welcome. Randall’s services will be on February 8, 2022, at Frary Funeral home, at 24 Cliff Ave in Tupper Lake from 11-1pm.
