My dad was with your dad in Japan/ARMY 1st Cavalry. We were reminiscing and dad mentioned Roland, so I did a Google search for him. We're very sorry to learn of his passing. Mom & Dad, Marge and Bob Wurtenberger, visited him while on their honeymoon. Dad say's your dad miraculously arranged a 3 day retreat for the guys at a Trapest Monistary while stationed in Japan. Sincere condolences from the Robert Wurtenberger family. Mjwurt@gmail.com
Roland was a special person he was married to my father's sister Jeannine so very many years ago.I met your Mother when they were visiting my Aunt and Uncle he always kept in touch with our family. I spoke to him a few months ago and he told me he was ready to be with his family.He will always be in our hearts and may you all find comfort that he is now "Safely Home".
Dear Joline and Family- I am sorry for your loss. It is clear from all the wonderful photos displayed on here that his family meant a lot to him. He had a wonderfully warm smile and I am sure he will be missed by the many lives he touched.
I was saddened to hear of the death of your Dad. It is hard for a Daughter to lose her Father. My Dad died 7 years ago- I miss him everyday.
I want to tell you how much I loved Roland. I worked with him at Shaw's. My husband was very sick for many years and he was always there for me. When my husband died I asked Roland to speak at the service. He was shocked. I told him that Mike had planned much of the service and had told me he did not want a church service.He wanted some one that he knew lived by the golden rule every day. He wanted Roland. I have many memories of him and they all make me smile. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that knowing how much he was loved by so many will help you in this difficult time.
Love to you all Ellenann Mc Neal
