Roland Srader

Roland  Srader, 61 years, passed to his Heavenly home on Feb. 9, 2015 at his home in Ava with his wife, Nancy, by his side.
Roland was born May 23, 1953 in Albuquerque, N.M., to Floyd  and  Dorothy (Jones) Srader. He graduated high school from Oklahoma City, Okla.
He served his country and was a U. S. Air Force veteran.
Roland was a resident of the Ava area for 17 years moving from Camp Verde,  Ariz. Roland was a copy machine repairman and owner and operator, with his wife, Nancy of Independent Copy Center on the Ava square. Roland met Nancy Hawk at Advanced Copy Systems in Phoenix in 1981 and they left together in 1986 to start Independent Copier Service in Camp Verde. Then, on May 27, 1989 Roland and Nancy were united in marriage in Camp Verde.
Roland was a Christian. He was active in the community and had served on the Ava Area Chamber of Commerce Board. He enjoyed gardening, but  found the Missouri rocks a challenge.
