Rolland Kellogg

August 4, 1929 — June 11, 2023

 

Rolland (Rollie) Francis Kellogg, Jr, born in Power, WV, son of Mary (Voellinger) and Rolland Francis Kellogg, Sr., died on June 11, 2023, at the age of 93 with his wife, Margaret Ann (Traubert) by his side. He earned a B.S degree in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin and received an MBA from Case Western Reserve. He served 4 years as a fighter pilot in the U.S Air Force during the Korean War (where he broke the sound barrier by doing a nosedive from 40,000 feet) and followed with 16 years in the Air National Guard retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. His first job was as a Chemist with the B.F. Goodrich Company. He worked in Chemical Sales for many years and finished his career with the DuBois/Diversey Company as their Assistant Vice President, Technical Director in the Water Management Division. He was a devout, lifelong Catholic, serving as one of the first lay Eucharistic Ministers at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in West Chester, OH. In 1990 the Knights of Columbus elected him Grand Knight. He was left-handed but played most sports right-handed- including golf, making a Hole in One in 1960 at Oglebay Park, Wheeling, WV. Oglebay was a lucky place for Rollie as that is where he met his wife of 69 years. He remained an avid golfer, playing in a Senior Golf League at Sharon Woods until the age of 90. He is also survived by a brother, Jack, sisters-in-law Mary Ellen Madden,  Elizabeth Jane Lane and brother-in-law Dr. John W. Traubert (Nancy). He is also survived by his daughters Jane (Jack Schultz), Ellen, Susan (Shawn Harley) and sons George (Anne Vaughan Kellogg), Jim (Nancy Stafford) and Paul (Karen Simmons Kellogg). His family also includes grandchildren Luke (Stephanie), Sarah (Brad Albertson), Ben, Lindsey, Rebecca, Caroline, and Nicholas Kellogg, Gregory and Laura Warner and Allison Schultz Gonring (Nate), Erica, Emily (Dave Smith) and Justin (Victoria) Schultz, great-grandchildren Charlotte Kosse, Penelope, Oliver and Delilah Smith, Isidora, Desmond and Jesse Schultz and Baby Gonring due in September. Preceded in death by sister, Mary Florence Stinson and her husband, Charles W. Stinson, sister-In-law Carole Gellenbeck Kellogg, brothers-in-law John F. Madden and John M. Lane. He was a wonderful husband, father, brother, grandpa, uncle and friend. His quiet strength and generosity will be missed.
