We will miss you Bop!!!! A special mention to all of Roland and Vicki's extended family. He was preceded in death by his son Darrell Wallace and nephew Brian Hall. Roland was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1947. Married his beautiful wife Victoria (Vicki) in 1964 and then moved to California. They were teenagers in love, just 15 and 17 years old. With all the odds against them they proved to everyone the true meaning of love! They just celebrated their 50th anniversary on August 8th, 2014. Your children and grandchildren thank you for your love and commitment to each other. You taught us well! Roland was the man everyone wanted to be. The mentor, not only professionally, but also personally. He changed the lives of so many. We have suffered a very unexpected and great loss but Dad, Roland, and Bop your legacy will live on in your kids, grandkids, friends and extended family. We will make you proud!!! Roland's hobbies included hunting, fishing, carpentry, music and listening to granddaughter Jade sing and play the guitar, and Karaoke. He was a jack of all trades, but his biggest hobby was his family. A true family man!
