Roland J. Trees
August 20, 1932-
July 13, 2013
Roland Trees, 80, of Kirby Texas passed away on July 13, 2013. He was born in La Pryor TX on August 20, 1932 and was raised in Uvalde. Roland was a Staff Sgt. in the United States Air Force and after leaving the military he started his career at CPS in San Antonio and retired from there in 1991. Roland married Peggy Gibbons on February 16, 1962 and settled in Kirby Texas where they raised their family and still reside. Roland was a member of the VFW#2059, Master Mason member of Alamo Lodge AF & AM #44, Member of Hermann Son's Lodge 306. Roland Trees, for those who never had the pleasure of meeting him, was a well respected husband, father, grandfather and friend. Born the youngest of children during tough times in Uvalde, TX, Roland inherited his "true grit" characteristics at an early age. During good times or bad, Roland was never one to complain. He would greet you with his original smile, a story, and a kiss on the cheek. It was no rare occasion that you would see Roland looking sharp, dressed head to toe in his finest Western wear. He and his wife Peggy enjoyed the San Antonio Rodeo and for many years served on several different committees. They loved to take trips and after retirement they were never home long before another trip was being planned. He was the type of person who could start a conversation with anyone he encountered, and make a friend in the process. Roland is survived by his wife of 51 years, Peggy Trees of Kirby TX along with their two sons Kenneth Trees of Adkins and David Trees (DeAnn) of Hondo. Grandchildren Kody and Madison Trees of Sugar Land and Step Grandchildren Carl and Jake Muennink of Hondo along with many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by parents Clara & Cabble Trees, three sisters and two brothers.
Graveside service will be held on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at Mission Burial Park South.
