Conventual Franciscan religious

Brother Casimir Roland, OFM Conv. was born Joseph Vincent (Laurynas) Roland on March 20, 1928 in Carbondale, Pennsylvania. His parents, Benedict Laurynas and Anna Jogauga, were the descendents of Lithuanian immigrants. Throughout his life Brother Casimir was devoted to his Lithuanian heritage and made great efforts to conserve and develop his knowledge of Lithuania's heritage and culture. Brother Casimir is survived by two sisters, Leona Bozenko and Mary Costello of Clark's summit, Pennsylvania, and by one brother, Larry Laurynas of Carbondale, Pennsylvania. Before entering the Order of Friars Minor Conventual in 1991, Brother Casimir worked for many years, both in New York and then in San Francisco, as a chef, caterer and restaurant owner. As a Franciscan friar, Brother Casimir served his brothers as a cook, as the superior of the community in Arroyo Grande and, for the last ten years, as the Procurator/Treasurer of the California Province. After a lengthy period of treatment, Sister Death came for Brother Casimir on Sunday, November 11, 2007.
