Roland Francis Englebert, 87, loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed away May 9, 2020, at Renaissance Assisted Living in DePere, surrounded by his children. He was born on March 2, 1933, in Brussels to the late William and Pauline (Alexander) Englebert. Roland married Carole Jadin on March 28, 1951, at Our Lady of Snow, in Namur, WI.
Dad lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed it all. He and mom enjoyed camping and traveling all over the country wintering in Florida and Arizona. Roland especially enjoyed fishing and playing cards with his sons, grandkids, family, and friends. He loved his time with his family, as he would say, “they made his day.”

Roland is further survived by 18 great grandchildren: two sisters, Judy (Phil) Pierre, and Barb (Pat) O’Hern; three sisters-in-law, Erma Sisel, Vida Jacobs, Mildred Granius, nieces, nephews and many other family and friends.
In addition to his parents Roland was preceded in death by his wife, Carole Englebert; daughter, Mary; his father and mother-in-law, Adam and Irene Jadin; brothers and sisters-in-law, George and Blanche Jeanquart, Floyd Sisel, Dick Jacobs and Bernard Granius.
