Obituary

Roland Emile Drouin Born May 1, 1933, in Montreal, Quebec Born into eternal life June 7, 2018, in Powell River Roland was predeceased by his parents Imelda and Ernest and his beloved sister Gisele. He is survived by his brothers Maurice (Germaine) and Raymond (Nicole), his sisters Yvette (Harvey) and Lorraine (Alain), and many nieces, nephews and cousins all living in Quebec. Rollie lived a full and interesting life. He was a circus performer (tightrope walker), a seminarian, a convenience store owner and operator, a missionary to Cameroon (a teacher), a metallurgy technologist, a superintendent of a foundry at the ripe old age of 20, an airplane steward, and finally, a teacher assistant in the metallurgy department of BCIT for 26 years. After retirement, Rollie moved to Sechelt for a short time and 16 years ago moved to his final home, Powell River. He loved people and through his life he shared his musical talent, his smile and sense of humour, his home and his money with whoever needed it. Rollie loved God and his church above all else and gave himself 100 per cent to serving everywhere he could. He was always the first person to volunteer to help. Rollie will live on in the hearts and memories of his many friends. Roland’s funeral Mass and burial took place June 11 at Powell River Regional Cemetery in Cranberry.
