BELMONT — Roland Lemay, 62, formerly of Timothy Drive, died at Forestview Manor, Meredith, on Wednesday, June 20, 2012.
Roland was born on Dec. 29, 1949, in Nashua and moved to Laconia to become a resident of the Laconia State School from January 1959 to July 1971. Upon being discharged, he held jobs in the Lakes Region, one of them being the Red Hill Inn in Meredith where he worked for more than 10 years. He then was hired by Remcon North in Meredith where he also worked for more than 10 years and was considered a valued employee and had many good friends within the company.
Roland owned his own home in Belmont and was proud of the flower garden he kept in front of his home. He enjoyed the company of his fellow employees, often enjoying a meal with them and going on vacation with them on the Saco River. Roland liked to tinker and could fix anything he could put his hands on and he kept a file on everything he had ever purchased. He had made his own exercise machine when he had injured his shoulder and this helped him get back to work sooner. He was also very fond of cats, his latest being “Butterball” who was his constant companion through his illness.
Roland was predeceased by his parents and leaves behind a sister who lives in Hollis. He will be buried next to his mother in the Gibson Cemetery in Pelham. He was a good friend to many and will be sorely missed by those who knew him.
