After the death of his mother and father he and his older sister Hazel and younger brother Milton went to Madison, Ohio to live with their step-mother's family the Genung's. Here he met and later married Bertha Bates who was his step-mothers niece. He graduated from Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He married Bertha in 1913 at Bertha's home on Bates road in Madison, Ohio.

Roland took a job as Assistant Advertising Manager in the Hamburger Dept Store (later May Co.) in Los Angeles, CA. In 1920 they moved to Salt Lake City where Roland was Advertising Manager for the Paris Co. Six years later he bought an advertising agency and had his own business for the next 5 years. Following that he was Advertising and Credit Manager for the Axelrad Furniture Co. for 16 years.

They raised their four daughters Betty, Katharine, and twins Genevieve and Jeanette in Salt Lake City. In 1946 Roland retired and he and Bertha moved to Santa Monica, CA. They would eventually move to Phoenix, Arizona where their oldest child Carol lived. Roland suffered from Alzheimer's in his old age, but was cared for affectionately by his wife and daughters. Roland and Bertha had 20 grandchildren between 1938 and 1957.
