In Loving Memory

Rolando Escamilla

April 18, 1947 – April 23, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Roland Escamilla on Friday, April 23, 2021 at his home in Friendswood, Texas.  He was born in 1947 in Corpus Christi, Texas.  After high school graduation, he married Anna, his beloved wife of 54 years.  Roland proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. Following the Air Force, he and Anna moved to the Houston area where he graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting.  He and Anna remained in the Houston area and raised their two sons, Ron and Tony.  He was co-owner of Frsea Inc., a business he and his partners worked hard to build into a successful venture.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Alicia and Guadalupe Escamilla; parents in-law, Maria Elena Toves and Elias Toves; brother-in-law and best friend, Saul Guerra.

            Left to honor and cherish his memory are his wife, Anna Escamilla; sons, Ron Escamilla, Tony Escamilla and his partner Christy Neill; grandchildren, Alexandra Blalock and her husband Aaron, Andrew Escamilla; sister, Nelda Guerra; niece, Andrea Guerra; brothers in-law, Richard Toves, Alan Toves; sister-in-law, Tanh Toves; niece, Tanzy Tran and her husband To; nephew, Richard Toves and his wife Nga.

            Roland was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend.  He had a kind heart and cherished his children and grandchildren.  He took great pride in their accomplishments and was an integral part of their lives.  Whether it was coaching and traveling to baseball games, going to dance recitals, or attending birthday parties, he was always there to be their support.  He was happiest when he was around family.  Roland also took great pleasure in the simple things in life. He enjoyed fishing, cooking outdoors, taking his wife to eat breakfast and watching sports.  He will be remembered as making a difference in the lives of those he loved and will be greatly missed by those who loved him.

            Friends are cordially invited to attend a visitation with the family on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home, 311 N. Friendswood Dr., Friendswood, Texas 77546.

    Sorry for your loss. Will miss seeing Roland at Kelley’s. He was always very friendly & I enjoyed talking to him. May he RIP.

  2. I have been a fan of the Anna & Roland life & love story since 1985, when I first met Anna at UH where we both worked. Anna's family stories were always filled with such love, respect, support, and pride for each other and their sons, and then their grandkids. What a wonderful example Anna & Roland have been to so many people! Roland will certainly be missed by many, but he will always be a part of Anna. Love & Hugs!

  3. I met Anna in 1989 and, through her loving and caring discussions, I felt like I knew Roland (and the boys) long before I met him (them). Having spent some time with Roland and Anna, over the years, we have had the privilege of getting to know Roland better. To Anna, Ron, Tony, Alex and Andrew, you were all so very loved and important in Roland's life, as he was in yours. I know you will miss him greatly and will cherish the years you spent being loved by him. Hugs and Prayers to all of you.

      Thank you. Phyllis. From the moment Roland met you and Paul, he considered you his friend. He very much enjoyed hanging out with you two.

    I am so sorry for your family's loss. Eternal Rest Grant Unto Him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

  5. Anna, I am so sorry to hear of Roland's passing. I love you and think of you often. You have a beautiful family and I feel very blessed that I was able to meet them. Please know that you are all in my prayers. God bless you all.
