Roland and I went on many trips together when we worked at Arwood Corp. He was a quite sort, but knew how to have fun. He joins our brethren awaiting God's Bliss. Take care Roland

Roland, you were my best friend as we grew up together in our teenage years. I have, and forever will keep you in my memories. We were as brothers, without all the drama! I could always count on your friendship, no matter what we got into. My very deepest condolences to Roland's entire family. May you forever rest in peace. Bob

Roland was a gentle quiet man. He was an usher at our wedding. We had many happy times with him and Elaine in our younger years. Our thoughts are with his family as they have had to deal with so much pain in recent years. Go rest high on That Mountain. Love, Tom and Terry❤️
