I apologize for this late entry. But, his memory triggers from time to time as it did just now. And it always will be there. As stated in another entry he had a unique refreshing way of seeing things. He was a friend I didn’t see often enough. I was lucky to have crossed paths with him, you Linda and your Family twice. Once in Centerbook Ct. and once in Bangkok. I will always have the fondest memories of him and all the Family. I miss him.

The Stewart family of Allentown PA are saddened to hear of Roland’s passing at such a young age. We have fond memories of spending time with him and his siblings when we shared an address in Italy from 1966-1969. Roland always had an interesting observation about the simplest things and his point of view and memory were of constant amazement to us. We are sure he will be missed by his family and friends. Good night, sweet prince. Frank Stewart. effess2010 at hotmail dot com February 21, 2019
Dear Linda, John Burke told me of Roland’s passing. Although it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, I want to send you my condolences at this sad time. I’m glad John gave you the snapshot I took of your Dad’s grave. He had a profound, life-long influence on me (and many others). I wish you and your family God’s peace and fond memories of your Dad, Mom and Roland. Bill Irwin March 25, 2014
