    Roland worked in the forestry industry for the Mersey Paper Company in Nova Scotia before joining the Army in 1941.  He was a veteran of the Second World War who served overseas with the Royal Canadian Engineers in England and Northwest Europe.  Following demobilisation, he returned to Mersey Paper Company before moving to Ontario to pick tobacco and to the USA to pick apples.  He returned to Mercy Paper as a night watchman where he worked until his retirement in 1980. 

    There will be no service. A private burial of ashes will take place at Indian Brook Cemetery in Barss Corner.  Donation may be made to the Parkinson Society of Canada, Maritime Region, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia or a charity of one’s choice. {gdMar2017dc} [zsd, zpi]
