What a truly wonderful and nice couple. Rolland and his wife Carm, they were always so nice and fellow communicants of all three churches. God bless and safe home to both of these wonderful people! Always happy, always smiling and giving words of encouragement in my young days in Pownal! They will truly be missed, prayers and condolences to their family. I salute and thank you for your service and kind heartedness!

Rolland was always such a gentleman and in the moment. Wanted to know what you were doing, where the next job was, and how the h... are you? You always felt comfortable around him- he included you. Rest In Peace sir, glad to know you and to the Roy family our deepest sympathies.

To The Roy Family - We loved your dad. What an inspiration his life’s story was. Every time we were lucky enough to have times to visit with one another he was always so welcoming and he always made us feel we were part of his family. May God bless you Rolland. We were blessed to have you for 98 years.
