    I am a wc attorney from bemidji and thought alot of the way rolf did his work as a judge. Very cordial but when it was time to work he did his job very well and as fairly as he could with everyone leaving for the day feeling as though they had been dealt with fairly and had been properly heard and respected . I send my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Rolf’s personal and professional presence in the mn wc system has been missed the last couple of years. Mark Rodgers

    Rolf and I taught Sunday School together at Woodlake back in the 90s.
    Rolf was a fun guy to teach with, a faith full guy to teach with.
    I, and the students we taught, will miss him.
