Roland B. Tiemann, went to be with our Lord on Nov. 2, 2011, at the age of 87. He was born on June 14, 1924, in Karnes County to Ben and Elsa Ahrens Tiemann. He grew up in a strong Christian home, being baptized in Karnes City on September 14, 1924, and confirmed at Grace Lutheran Church of Sinton, Texas, on May 25, 1941. He loved his family and had a lot of fun with his sister, brothers, and cousins through the years. After graduating from Karnes City High School in 1942, he served his country in the Army Air Corp (now known as the Air Force) during WWII. After returning home he worked in the auto parts business at McClane Auto and Motor Supply Auto Parts. Before retiring in 1994, he worked for Ford Authorized Engine Rebuilders (AER) for 30 years in sales. After retiring, he enjoyed ranching, hunting, and being with his family. He had a love of people and especially enjoyed extended family gatherings. He is survived by his loving family, wife of 62 years, Ethelene; daughters, Joan and husband Tommy Friesenhahn; Jean and husband Lance Ross; grandchildren, Jared and fiancée Skye, Bethany, Aaron, and Zachry Friesenhahn; Kyle, Kellie and Kristi Ross, and eight nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Etta Mae Hall, brothers Harvey and Ben, Jr. He was a wonderful husband, the best dad, and a great papo. We will miss his beautiful blue eyes that were always full of fun.
