Mr. Harold Rolley, Jr, 63 years of age, entered into eternal rest and transitioned to his Heavenly home on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, in Charlotte, NC. Harold was born on September 13, 1955, in Philadelphia, PA to the late Harold Rolley, Sr. and Rebecca Brigmon Rolley.
Harold accepted Christ at an early age. He was baptized at Antioch Baptist Church in Bowman, SC where his parents were members. He attended elementary school in Philadel- phia, PA and completed his secondary education at Orange- burg-Wilkinson High School in 1973.
After high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served as a Supply Specialist. While stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC, Harold married Victoria Keitt Rolley of Bowman, SC on July 24, 1975. To this union, one son, Harold Jermaine Rolley, was born. After departing the military, Harold spent many years working as an Inspec- tor for the City of New York in the Department of Transpor- tation.
