Roland Weaver, 62 years old, of Hibbing, MN died on January 24, 2020. Roland was born in Pennsylvania
in 1957. It was there that he learned his trade of masonry and met the love of his life, Beulah. They
married in 1976 and celebrated their 43 rd wedding anniversary together last May. Together they made
homes in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Florida, and Canada. Feeling God’s calling on his life, Roland
attended seminary to become an ordained minister and found a church home in Hibbing (Open Door
Church), where he has been the pastor for the last 34 years. Roland and Beulah worked as a team. They
loved traveling and escaping the winter to California. They spent many wonderful days together at the
“cabin” up north, working and relaxing in the beautiful outdoors. Roland raised two sons, Jeremy and
Josh. He raised his boys to follow the example he set, to become men who love God, and live their lives
with purpose and integrity. He loved hunting, fishing, and golfing with his boys. Especially golfing.
Thirteen years ago, Roland began a new role in life as a proud “Papa” to grand-children. He loved
spending time with his grand-kids. He lit up when he talked about them and how proud he was of their
accomplishments. Roland loved his church family and poured his heart into Open Door Church. He had
an unyielding passion for seeing people come to know the Lord, so they could live in God’s unending
grace and freedom. Roland was loved by those who met him and he will be deeply missed by his family,
friends, and community.
