    As a neighbor I remember seeing Roland out helping with the yard work. I am very grateful to Roland and Otto for helping me one day push my broken lawn mower into the shed. I pulled on the mower myself a few times when the two of them came to help. And thank goodness they didfor little did I know I put my back out for about 2 weeks. I can’t image the damage I would have done if they hadn’t shown up.
    Forever Thankful

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Roland!

    I came to know Roland because he played Bingo at the same place I did. He sat about 2 tables behind me. He always said hi and ask how I was doing. If he was going for coffee he would ask if I would like him to bring me a cup also. He is missed at the American Legion Bingo. Our bingo caller (Brian) ask for a moment of silence when we heard about his passing. He was a very thoughtful person. He will be missed.R. I. P.
