I was deeply saddened to hear of Rolys passing,
Roly made deliveries to our shop in Nisku for years and I got to know him quite well, He was always in a great mood and we had good chats every time he entered the shop. I will miss him greatly. The world was a better place with Roly in it !!!!
My deepest sympathies to the family !!!!

I will always remember Roly as a kind and gentle man. He had a great sense of humour with a twinkle in his eye.

Dear Auntie Rosie & Family,
I have many precious memories of Uncle Roly. He was always teasing and joking and would always be ready to lend a helping hand to anyone. He was so kind hearted and the light from his loving soul emanated brightly. We are thinking of you at this sad time with sincere sympathy . May it comfort you to know that Uncle Roly is now at peace, free from pain and suffering and likely onto another beautiful adventure. Love Phyl, Todd and Nikolai xxoo

I will miss uncle Roly a great deal. My condolences to all of the family members.
