It is with profound sorrow that I learned that the Supreme Architect of the Universe has called Roland to his heavenly workshop. Roland was well known to Rogers Deer Club for his long and faithful service. Roland's passing is a great loss to his family and friends as well as to Rogers Deer Club. While we grieve we also rejoice for Roland has been called to go beyond this mortal sphere to travel in foreign lands in greater places far beyond our comprehension. We sorrow in Roland's passing but rejoice in his future life. Rusty Olejasz President Rogers Deer Club

I never met Roland Greene but know his son Nelson quite well. My heart goes out to Nelson and the rest of the family on their great loss.

The Greenes in Boston -- Roy Tinker and little Truman -- will miss Uncle Roland. He always had a warm smile for everyone. We have a nice picture from our 1996 wedding to remember him by. We won't have him to introduce everyone at family reunions anymore but his spirit will always be there when we gather. Roy Tinker and little Truman.
