Obituary for Dennis C. "Elvis" Roland

Dennis C. "Elvis" Roland
Dennis C. Roland (Elvis), 76, of Black Mountain, went to be with the Lord Saturday, June 10, 2017.
Mr. Roland was born December 12, 1940 in Buncombe County. Dennis was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He proudly served as a Buncombe County Sheriff for 7 years. Along with his love for his family came a love for the Lord. He was a wonderful prayer warrior and a trusted friend to many. Often seen dancing with his beautiful wife Brenda, he always had a smile for everyone. He used his resemblance to Elvis as a tool to tell others about the Lord. He will be missed by all who knew him. Dennis was a member of Trinity Baptist Church.
Dennis is preceded in death by his father, Wayne Roland; brother, Charles Roland; and grandson, Bailey Smith.
He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Brenda Epps Roland; daughters, Debbie Bartlett (Ronnie) of Black Mountain, Lisa Mumpower (Bryan) of Swannanoa, and Deana Orta (Quillon) of Swannanoa; sons, Matthew Roland (Maria) of Huntsville, AL, and Jack Lunsford of Barnardsville; mother, Pearl Roland of Black Mountain; 11 grandchildren; and 3 great grandchildren.
The family will receive friends Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at Kerlee Heights Baptist Church with a Celebration of Life Service immediately following with Rev. Charles Duyck and Rev. Kenneth Rhinehart officiating.
A private burial will be at Mountain View Memorial Park.
