Rolando Camarillo Cholula, 32; Hero To His Family

Rolando Camarillo Cholula, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend, passed away on August 2 in Franklin Township.

He was born on September 18, 1980, in San Vicente Pinas Oaxaca, Mexico. Rolando’s life was tragically cut short, but his memory will forever be cherished by those who knew and loved him.

Rolando was a true hero who proved his unwavering commitment to his family until his very last breath. He displayed remarkable courage and selflessness when he bravely saved his children from the river after they fell in. They were his pride and joy, and he would stop at nothing to protect them.

As a dedicated father, Rolando worked tirelessly to ensure that his family had everything they needed. With determination and perseverance, he learned the construction trade and eventually established his own successful business. Through hard work and dedication, he achieved the dream of owning a home for his family—a milestone that was just realized last year. His children knew that their father’s love knew no bounds, as he constantly strived to provide them with a fulfilling and educational lifestyle.
