R. Randall Rollins, a former Delaware resident and highly respected leader and influential figure in Atlanta, Ga., business and philanthropic communities, passed away Monday, Aug. 17, 2020 at Emory University Hospital. Mr. Rollins was 88 years old and had suffered a short illness.
Mr. Rollins, known as Randall and affectionately referred to as “Triple R,” was born in 1931 and grew up with his parents and grandparents on the family farm near Ringgold, Ga. In the eight decades that followed those humble beginnings, Mr. Rollins never stopped working, and the tremendous success he achieved in business earned him countless recognition’s, including a place of honor on the New York Stock Exchange Wall of Fame. And yet throughout his life, Mr. Rollins remained a private and unpretentious man who readily acknowledged his humble beginnings. When asked what he did for a living, he often answered with a simple, “I am a farmer.”
He started his career working with his father at his Rollins Broadcasting. Rollins Broadcasting purchased Orkin Pest Control in 1964 and soon diversified into other service industries.
