My wife Joan and I wish to express our deepest sympathies to Roland’s family on the passing of an outstanding leader who was kind and thoughtful in all that he was involved.
I had the great pleasure of working with Roland for a short time before we all retired. He was a compassionate man who was also a very successful professional with great advice.
