Rollin Howard Binion passed away on Nov. 15, 2022, in Lacey, Washington, at the age of 77. His passing was due to complications from pneumonia and heart disease.
Rollin was born Aug. 31, 1945, in Centralia, Washington, to Robert and Maxine. He grew up in Onalaska, Washington, where he graduated from high school. He spent most of his adult life in Wenatchee, Washington, working as a long distance truck driver and spent the last 12 years in Onalaska enjoying family and old friends.
Rollin is preceded in death by his father, Robert Binion, and mother, Maxine, along with siblings Glen Binion (Carolyn), Deloris Kinsman (Jim), Donald (Butch), Dennis (Peanut) Binion and Darlene (Kricket) Binion. He is survived by sons Todd in Wenatchee and Max Binion, in Sumner, Wa. He also had two Grandchildren, Wyatt (Aggie) Binion of Wenatchee and Bailey (Chris) Jackson of Puyallup, two great Grandchildren, Jack Rollin and Amelia. He is also survived by brothers Richard (Myrna) Binion, Carl (Mort) (Norma) Binion and sister Carol (Bruce) Morrison. Also, there are lots and lots of nieces and nephews, and a few great-nieces and nephews. Rollin’s two grandchildren, Wyatt and Bailey, meant the world to him. He was able to take Wyatt on rides across the U.S. on his Harley and in his long haul truck. He spent all of his free time with them. He would say, “I have nothing better to do than to spoil my grandkids.” And he did. He was a father figure to them (especially for Wyatt). Papa was his hero. Rollin would end every phone call with the phrase “looking forward to seeing your smiling face.”
His other passion was his Harley motorcycle. He rode it everywhere, with numerous trips to Sturgis accompanied by family members and friends. His grandchildren and his Harley were truly his pride and joy.
