December 20, 1931 – March 18, 2019
With family at his side, Roland passed peacefully.
Predeceased by his wife Patsey and lovingly remembered by his daughters; Rolanne (Barry), Ronique (Derek), Joninne (Peter), Lynelle (Dave), along with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Roland was born in Granby, Quebec and made Victoria, BC his home. He had multiple careers, working in the culinary/catering field, and as a correctional officer, but most memorably, as a professional ballroom dance instructor. He was actively involved in community and a life-long member with the Lion’s Club.
Later in life Roland moved to Duncan, BC where his community involvement continued, and he met many new friends. His fun, caring nature will be missed. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sunridge-Park Place Seniors Living and the compassionate staff at Cowichan District Hospital.
At Roland’s request, a private family celebration will be held.
