Lacey, Roland Byron Gilbert

Roland Lacey passed away peacefully at Grey Bruce Health Services in Meaford on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at the age of 86.

He was born in Cranbrook, BC on October 18, 1934.

Roland will live forever in the heart of his loving wife, Marty Lacey of Clarksburg.

He was the caring stepfather of Linda Juniper, and the best Godfather to Jana Kridlova (John Lavers) and Papa to Emily and Alex. He will be missed dearly by his nieces, nephews and their families.

Roland was predeceased by his much loved sister Clarice.

He was a very kind hearted man and will be remembered fondly by his family and friends and will be missed by his buddies who met every morning at Tim Horton’s.

One of the proudest times of Roland’s life would be his time spent serving with the U.S. Air force where he received an award for his service.

There will be a private celebration of Roland’s life at a later date.

    Uncle Byron, I will always cherish all the wonderful memories with you at our family get togethers, enjoying summer Picnics at Bolton park, tobogganing and snowmobiling in the winters on your property and relaxing together by the roaring fires that you would build in the beautiful stone fireplace in Bolton. You and Aunty Marty created a second home for our family which was always filled with lots of love and laughter. Aunty Marty I will always be here to love and support you along with our entire family. Love Teresa xoxo

    Marty, so sorry to hear of Byron’s passing. He and I had wonderful chats when we met picking up our mail and especially at all the Slabtown Christmas parties.
