Josefson, Roland Ture Elving

January 24, 1929 – October 14, 2011

With great sadness we announce the passing of our husband, father and grandfather at the age of 82 years. Lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy, daughter Karen (Jason), and sons Karl (Donna) and Chris, and his grandchildren Melissa, Kristin, Sarah, Curtis and Karla. Roland was born in Småland, Sweden and immigrated to BC in 1951. After meeting the love of his life, Nancy in 1952, they were married in 1954 and began their family in 1956. Their first home was in Lynn Valley, and then they moved to Port Moody in 1964, before settling in Maple Ridge in 1972. After retiring from the Maple Ridge School District, in 1990 as a maintenance painter, Roland spent the next 20 years enjoying the building of his cabin, fishing, and cross country skiing at Osprey Lake. He spent many enjoyable hours there with his family. We shall miss his happy, friendly smile.

A memorial service will be held at St. Andrews United Church, 22165 Dewdney Trunk Rd, Maple Ridge at 2 pm, Nov. 6, 2011. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
