Roland absolutely loved the great outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, camping, evenings by the campfire and all that nature had to offer him. He was never idle. Always doing something. He was a great craftsman and was a jack of all trades. He could fix anything and make anything he wanted. Even after he went blind, he didn’t stop. He completed a homemade picnic table about 2 weeks before he passed! The loss of his eye sight never stopped him. Roland will be sadly missed by all who knew him. -SEMPER FI-
