Survived by his in laws Albert and Pat Bisaillon, brother in laws Tim (Tess), Doug (Kathy), Ted and sister in law Bobbi-Jo (Andrew). He begins his journey and joins his parents the late Lionel and the late Olive as well as his brothers the late Normand and the late Rudy. Fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and friends.
Rolly was known throughout the community as a loving friend. Everyone who knew Rolly knew him to be a humours person who always had a smile on his face. He was caring and always gave a helping hand to those who needed it… no matter how big or trivial. He enjoyed being on the land, hunting, fishing and camping. His favorite place was at his camp on the water, enjoying the sunrise and the smell of the campfire. We know where Rolly is now, he is looking down on his family, friend’s and loved ones.
The family wishes to thank the First Responders for being there as soon as they could. They also want to thank members of the Thessalon First Nation community for their ongoing support.
