Relation: My friends father

My memories of Roland go back to the early 1970’s, as Omer and I were the best of friends. Roland always was super friendly and had a smile on his face. It seemed to me he always was working? I spoke to Roland a year ago, and he seemed, as he always, a kind and good man. My wife Kath send our condolences out to Jean, Omer, Jerry, Rene, and Roxanne. You all are blessed and richer for having such a great person like your husband, father in your life. Your all blessed.

We are so sorry to hear of Rollie’s passing. We spent a lot of time at the Elk Point Burger Bar, Rollie greeted all with a big smile,. He had a way of making you feel welcome like you just stepped into his home. He made the best tomato macaroni soup I ever had. Our deepest sympathy to you all. Whatever comforts your soul, soothes your spirit and bring you peace, that is what you are wished at this sad time.
