Roland was born May 14, 1933 in Waterbury, Connecticut, son of late Carmine DeVita and Catherine Guglielmino DeVita. He was a retired partner and vice president from Penn Life Insurance Company of Dayton, Ohio. He was an active member Stella Maris Roman Catholic Church and taught religion classes at CCD. Roland was a member of the Rotary Club Mt. Pleasant, Exchange Club - Isle of Palms, and 4th degree Knights of Columbus. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army.

Roland was a principled patriarch. His life story embodies the "American dream" in which he emerges as a personal and professional success. His charisma and humor truly lit up each and every room. As we close our eyes and think back to Roland, we picture him sitting with a historical book, garlicky clams, and a hot coffee.

He is survived by two sons, LTC Mark Devita (Elizabeth) of Airville, PA and John DeVita (Diane) of Dupont, WA; five daughters, Mary DeVita of Boca Raton, FL, Diane Scandino (David) of Malabar, FL, Pamela Wasserman (Gene) of Edison, NJ, Lori MacAvaney of Wilmington, DE, and Kathleen Crossan of Dayton, OH; sister, Anne Marie Waterworth (Kenneth) of Waterbury, CT; fifteen grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Memorials may be made to Stella Maris Catholic Church, 1204 Middle Street, P.O. Box 280, Sullivan's Island, SC 29482, www.stellamarischurch.org/give.
