Manuel Roller
PERRYVILLE - The Forkland community lost one of its leaders with the death of 78-year-old Manuel Roller.
He died of cancer Wednesday at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.
Roller was a founding member of the rescue squad and fire companies at Forkland, according to Lennie Shepperson, director of Disaster and Emergency Services for Boyle County.
"He was always a supporter. Rain or shine or zero weather, he was out there," Shepperson said of Roller's 26 years with the agencies. Roller was a safety officer for the fire company. He was a former member of Boyle County Fire District Board.
Roller didn't even let failing health prevent him from playing a role.
"His health in the past years didn't let him do much. He always took care of bringing the extrication vehicle to wrecks," Shepperson recalled.
Shepperson, who knew Roller all his life, said Roller "was a people person."
Another way Roller supported the Forkland community was by helping with the annual Forkland Festival, which is in its 25th year.
"He was one of the founding members of the Forkland Community Center. He has been active in the festival every year since the day it started," Shepperson noted.
Roller was a farmer and a partner with his brother, Leonard Roller, in Roller Brothers Saw Mill at Forkland. He was a former employee of the Danville Leaf Tobacco Warehouse and a member of North Rolling Fork Baptist Church. He was a former member of the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service, Boyle County Extension Service and Forkland Community Center boards.
Born Nov. 13, 1917, in Boyle County, he was a son of the late Nathaniel and Mary Crews Roller. Survivors include his wife, Mary Adams Roller; a daughter, Vikki Hadley, Junction City; a son, Gary W. Roller, Forkland; his brother; and three grandchildren. Services will be 2 p.m. Saturday at Forkland Fire Station. Burial will be in the Roller Family Cemetery.
