He attended St. Mary’s Catholic School in Panama. He was offered a full college scholarship in vocal but after graduation he made the decision to stay home and help his father and brother on the farm. On March 5, 1957, Roland was united in marriage to Velma Petersen at St. Mary’s in Panama. Seven children were born to this union: Debra, Daniel, Robert, Paul, David, Roger, and Linda. They remained on the farm until moving to Harlan in 1976. Roland sold seed for over 20 plus years for Wilson Hybrids. He also worked at Shelby County Sanitation and then retired at the age of 80 from the Landfill. Roland always had a love for farming and would keep up on what the markets were doing, how yields were going for the year and he would watch for grain prices. He would watch RFD TV to pass the time and he loved taking care of his yard which was always immaculate. In January of 2018, he moved to Rose Vista Nursing Home in Woodbine.
