Roland “YoYo” Tremblay, 83, of Fall River, devoted husband of the late Lorraine “Bunny” (Cabral) Tremblay, passed away at home peacefully with his family by his side on Sunday, April 1, 2012.
Born in Somerset, the son of the late Rene and Alice (Ouellette) Tremblay, and the brother of the late Rene Tremblay, Jr., he was the proud co-owner of Ray’s Radiator Works, Fall River. He helped build St. Anne School baseball field and was a former member of St. Anne Fraternity and South End Athletic Club.
An avid Red Sox and Patriots fan, Roland loved to gamble, whether it be at Foxwoods, the dog track, playing cards or buying scratch tickets, he always hoped to win big. He loved Fox News, homefries and extra crispy bacon. He loved going out to eat, especially for breakfast and loved to laugh.
He leaves behind his “breakfast buddy”, son Roland Tremblay, Jr. of Fall River, “Ma #2”, daughter Denise Tremblay-Resendes of Middletown, RI, his “personal nurse”, daughter Susan Cabral of Tiverton, RI; his devoted grandchildren, Ryan, Erica, Kierra and Dominic Cabral, Lisabeth and Russell Tremblay, and Westley, Landon and Brentton Resendes, who will miss him tremendously; and a loving “kid sister” Pauline Campbell of Fall River.
He will forever be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor. His family would like to acknowledge the nurses and staff at St. Anne’s Hospital for the incredible care they provided.
His funeral will be held Saturday at 8:00 AM from the AUCLAIR FUNERAL HOME, 690 So. Main St., Fall River, with a funeral rite in St. Anne Church at 9:00 AM. Burial, Notre Dame Cemetery.
Visitation, Friday 4:00 to 8:00 PM. LARGE PARKING AREA and BARRIER-FREE ENTRANCE at the rear of funeral home. Donations, in lieu of flowers, to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, 89 South St., Boston MA 02111 appreciated.
