Rollie Adams

November 18, 1964 — March 16, 2024

Rollie Adams, 59, born on November 18, 1964, in Los Angeles, CA. Rollie passed away on March 16, 2024 at his residence in Arcadia, CA. Rollie loved all of his Los Angeles pro teams, especially: Dodgers, Kings, Rams and his favorite college team was of course, UCLA.  NASCAR was his passion.  He was a painter by trade for many years. He was one of the kindest and most respectful gentleman you would meet. If he had $3, he'd give you $2. His real passion in life was to care for his wife, Erin, and his mother-in-law, Evelyn. Those ladies adored him and he doted on them constantly, even up to his passing. He loved animals, especially their dogs, Lizzie, Beauty and the Beast. He enjoyed sports, but especially spending the day golfing with his buddies or hiking in the wilderness looking for arrowheads and rocks.

Rollie was preceded in death by his older brother, Frankie (1974), father, Frank (2011), and mother, Ronnie (2017). His loving wife, Erin, passed away 6 days after him. He is survived by his brother, John (Anita), aunts, uncles, and numerous nieces and nephews. Many called him brother or uncle even if they were not related by blood, Rollie considered all those close to him to be family. 

Arrangements are under the care of Douglass & Zook Funeral and Cremation Services, Monrovia, CA.
