My memories go back to our growing up years, meeting all my cousins at the little cottage in the north woods, a magical time to grow up and such a privilege. Sharing stories, playing games, picking berries and the never ending on going croquet games.
Such a warm and gentle man. A real gem.
Sending hugs and love your way.
with my sincere and deepest sympathy to the family,

Roland, I miss all those wonderful rounds of golf we played together. You are my great friend. Thank you for preparing, and hosting those fine pasta dinners. I have so many great memories of us sitting on your back deck and sipping cold beverages. You are dear to me...you will be sadly missed but never forgotten. Thank you Roland for all the good times. You were such a joy.

Roland was a treasure. He became part of our golfing 'family' at Highland Golf Course in Conyers, Georgia. Even though Roland was in his 80s he refused to play from the white tees. Nope, old pugnacious Roland demanded to play fron the back blues with the 'young' guys. We threatened to cut him out of the bets, yet he never relented. Roland had some problems with his distance vision, so after every tee shot he would say, "where did it go?" We told him to just drive down the muddle if the fairway because that is where his tee shots always wound up. Roland was a great host of the 19th Hole Clubhouse off the 11th green. Many good memories there. When I think of Roland DeMark, it will always be with a smile.
