Rollin Vanoy

March 11, 1946 ~ July 22, 2018 (age 72)

Rollin Vanoy, 72, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, July 22, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born to Lula (Wilcher) and Hollis Vanoy in Liberty KY on March 11, 1946. He and his twin brother, Garland, moved to Indianapolis as young men and worked at Standard Service station in Beech Grove for 20 years as auto mechanics. They quickly earned the reputation of being brothers who could fix any vehicle. Over his career he earned many loyal customers who still brought their vehicles to him at home or often just stopped by to say hi. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years,  Jo Ann (Leonard). His adoring daughters Lisa (Randy), Becky, Shelly and step son, Joe (Kellie). His 8 grandchildren whom he was so proud of, and five siblings that he loved dearly.

He was preceded in death by his parents and darling daughter, Paula Kay.

We want to thank the IU hospice nurses for their wonderful care during his time at home on hospice. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to Indianapolis Humane Society to find loving homes for all the abandoned pets.

Services will be held Wednesday, July 25th at 7 p.m. at Jessen Funeral Home, Whiteland Chapel. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. until time of service. 

A visitation will also be held in Liberty, Kentucky at Bartle Funeral Home on Friday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
