Roland “Billy” William Bland

Billy Bland, 72 of Wilmington died July 2, 2010 after a long hard battle with lung disease. He was small in stature but big in determination and fought to the end.

He is predeceased in death by the love of his life Donna Sue, his mother Leona Boris and his sister Edith Croom.

Surviving are his sister Kay Citrola of NY, brothers Walter Bland and Ricky Heath of Wilmington and many nieces and nephews whom will miss him always.

The last few years of his life, Billy resided with his niece Linda
Williamson to whom the family is eternally grateful. She provided love for him above and beyond our expectations since his sister Edith passed.

Billy was full of funny stories and loved spending time with his family, always wanting to belong and be a part of things. We rejoice in knowing all is well for him today. We love you “Skee King” and we will see you later.

Memorial service will be 11:00 AM, Monday, July 5, 2010 at Wilmington Burial and Cremation Service.
