Roland had a lifelong love for the Dallas Cowboys football team, which he instilled in his siblings, daughter and grandson, Mikey. His passion for golf was shared with his brother, Norman and the family is confident that he is enjoying the most beautiful golf courses he has ever seen, in heaven. Roland was a loving husband who was the sole caretaker of his beloved wife, Ann. His devotion to fatherhood was apparent to all, as his love for his daughter, Annie, was abundant and she was the sunshine of his life. Being a grandparent was the highlight of his life as he beamed with joy over all three grandchildren.
