Roland Howard Heglin

January 4, 1935 - October 1, 2014


Roland Howard Heglin was born on January 4th, 1935 in Regina, Saskatchewan to parents Genevieve and Howard Heglin. As a child, Roland and his parents relocated from Regina to Rossland, BC. Although his parents relocated to Rossland, Roland continued to spend time in Regina with his grandparents. 

Throughout his life Roland worked many jobs, dedicating several years at Cominco pulp mill before ending his career as a welder in Castlegar, where he worked for 33 years.

Roland met and married his beloved wife Tilda in 1956. They made their home in Castlegar where they raised their three children. Roland has been widowed for the last 20 years and had to learn to survive without the help of his wife. He managed with the help of many dear friends and family who meant a great deal to him.

The family wishes to give a special thanks to Castlewood Village and their very caring and wonderful staff who made the last year of Roland’s life so very good.

Roland is predeceased by his parents, his wife Tilda, son Ron, and sister Ardelle. Left to mourn his loss are his very special friends and family; brothers Allan (Monica), David (Linda), Jerry, and sister Fay (Tom), son Richard (Rosa), daughter Mariann, and grand children Geoffrey, Jessy, Kayla and very special great grandson Kingston and not to forget his very special friends Buddy and Markie who miss him very much.
