Dear friends whom he considered family

Roland enjoyed playing golf, but his greatest love and accomplishments were his family and friends, whom he cherished seeing and spending time together.
He will be remembered as a quiet man, with a great wit and keen sense of humor, who will be dearly missed.

At his request, he preferred to be remembered at a Celebration of Life, which will be held at his residence in Acworth, Ga., August 26, 2017, from 1:00 pm to 5:00pm. All are invited to join in our celebration.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Life Raft Group, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for GIST.
