obit-roland-rempelRoland met Margaret at Mennonite Educational Institute, Abbotsford. At Clearbrook MB, he sang in the choir and quartets. At night school in Vancouver, Roland earned a journeyman’s diploma. He worked for the Delta School District in the maintenance and carpentry department. During the family’s 28 years in Delta, choir practice at Kennedy Heights MB was the highlight of Roland’s week. In retirement, Roland and Margaret moved back to Abbotsford. They enjoyed travelling and camping with friends and family. Roland took up picture framing and wood carving. For 26 years, they attended Bakerview and enjoyed singing in the fellowship choir. Two years ago, his health began to fail. Roland demonstrated his faith in a quiet and gentle way. Bible reading and prayer were his daily joy.
