He was born October 13, 1936 in Ouachita Parish, LA and passed away September 6, 2017. Roland was employed at Hanelines Men’s Wear for 30+ years. Before his health started to fail, he loved spending time at his camp on D’arbonne fishing, hunting and watching the sun rise from his dock. Those were some of his best days. Roland loved taking care of his yard and loved his little red riding mower which he said he loved more than his car. Roland is survived by his wife; Judith P. Coates; children; Greg Coates and wife Heidi, Steve Coates and wife Dayna, Lori S. Coronado and husband Danny and Chuck Smart and wife Lori; grandchildren, Daniel, Lane, Gavin, Colin, Colton Coates, Evan Smart , Mollie Peters, Rebecca and Haley Rainwater, Camryn Coates, and Emma Smart; sister-in-law, Charlotte Belveal. Thank you dear friends for all your prayers, cards, calls and for being there for us. We cherish your friendship and old friends are the dearest. Our most grateful thank you’s are to Dr. El Malah, Dr Shafiei, Dr. Mousa, Livia and all the staff at Internal Medicine of the Twin Cities for your love and care over the years. A special thank you to LA Hospice and Palliative Care.
