Robert Lucky “Bob” Roland, of Demossville, KY passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at the glorious age of 84. He was born on Barnes Road in Grant County, KY on May 21, 1936; the son of the late Lucky and Wendell Roland. Bob worked on the railroad and in his spare time loved to tend to his farm. His greatest joy, however, came from spending time with his beloved family who he cherished deeply.

Those left surviving to carry on Bob’s incredible legacy include his faithful and devoted wife of 65 years, Georgia Roland; children, Robert Dale Roland, Michael Daryl Roland, Dana Jay Roland, Cheryl Diane (Lindsey) Decker and Darren Bruce Roland; 8 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; as well as many other close relatives and friends who are now emptier upon his passing.
