Conley Harold Roller
July 8, 1943 - January 16, 2016
Conley Harold Roller was welcomed into the glory and peace of God's Presence
on January 16, 2016 at his lake home. Harold was born July 8, 1943 in
Kingsport, Tennessee, the third son of Conley and Queenie Roller. He
graduated from Dobyns-Bennett High School in Kingsport, Tennessee. He
received his undergraduate degree and masters degree from East Tennessee
Harold enjoyed a long time career in accounting and finance at Eastman
Chemical Company, retiring while still a young man. Harold worked hard and
played hard. He loved the ocean and he loved camping and traveling in the RV.
He always made a point to take his family on an annual vacation. He had a
passion for biking, taking a 1,000 mile journey across the US. He delighted in
living at the lake, where he taught his children to waterski. The lake house
was his ongoing building project. Harold was an avid bridge player and an even
more avid competition dominos player. He enjoyed woodworking and took great
pleasure in building a cradle for his first grandchild.
From the time Harold was a young man, he loved his Lord, and was always
willing to take tasks seriously. Harold never minded sacrificing his desires for
his family. He was a true family-man who followed God's path throughout his
life. A forward thinking person, he continued to look for ways to improve. He
served as a deacon, a treasurer, an elder, and on numerous church committees.
Harold poured his heart and time into his final church home that he whole-
heartedly believed has a great future ahead.
Harold is survived by his wife of almost 53 years, Libby; his son Tim Roller of
Atlanta, Georgia; his daughter Connie and son-in-law Joe Whisenhunt, and
their children, Maggie, Joey, Zeke, Henry, Max, and Eleanor of Conway,
Arkansas; his brother Don and wife Betty of Ponte Vedra, Florida; his brother
David and wife Dorothy of Bel Air, Maryland; many beloved nieces and
nephews; a multitude of wonderful friends and neighbors, and his cherished
