On Feb. 27, 1965, Roland married Maria Vangeli at St. Joseph’s Church in Lewiston.

He made his start in construction and became an independent professional home builder. He later became a member of the Rhode Island Carpenters Union. During his career, he applied his craft to projects ranging from trendy store fronts like American Eagle Outfitters at Boston’s Copley Place to the Seabrook Nuclear Power plant in NH.
