Ralph Roland, a beloved husband, father, and hardworking truck driver, passed away on October 6, 2023, at the age of 63. Ralph's generous spirit and joyful presence will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Ralph lived a simple and fulfilling life, finding joy in the small moments, and cherishing the love of his family. He demonstrated determination and resilience throughout his career as a truck driver in the agriculture industry.  When Ralph wasn’t in his truck working, or spending time with his family, one could find him with pole in hand fishing. Ralph's dedication to his work and his impeccable driving skills earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues.

He leaves behind his loving wife, Beryl Roland, whose unwavering support and love sustained him throughout their years together. Ralph was the proud father of two daughters, Megan Roland (Shawn) and Shelby Roland (Cameron); grandchildren, Jace Lachney, Braelynn Lachney, and Saylor Rachal-Coco; sisters, Julie Dalgo and Jamie Pierite. He cherished every moment spent with his children and grandchildren. He was a constant pillar of strength and guidance in their lives. He was preceded in death by his parents, James Roland and Sarah Estelle Franks Parks.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to a charity close to Ralph's heart, such as the American Cancer Society or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Ralph Roland will forever be remembered for his genuine kindness, unwavering love for his family, and his strong work ethic. May his soul find eternal peace, and may his memory continue to inspire all those whose lives he touched.

Escude Funeral Home of Mansura, 6608 Porterie St. Mansura, LA 71350 (318-964-2324) has been entrusted with the funeral arrangements.
