To send flowers in memory of Roland Gee Senter, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
He was born in Lone Oak, Texas on September 23, 1933 to Clay Senter and Edna McVay. After graduating from Lone Oak High School and serving two years in the United States Army, Roland began his professional career with an entry-level job at Jones Blair Paint Company in Dallas and with hard work and self education he progressed through JBP, Sterling Lacquer and Western Specialty Coatings companies to become Head Chemist, Plant Manager and a top Sales Producer. In 1977 he started his own company, Extrusion Finishing with his wife Linda. In 1983, they sold the company and began a new venture Precision Industrial Coatings which they sold in 1995. Roland continued in a sales position until he retired in 1997. Roland always had a desire to move back to his east Texas roots, so after selling the company Roland and Linda moved to Holly Lake Ranch where they lived on the lake for nine years. In 2004 they moved to Mineola.
Roland was an all-around high school athlete and his love of sports continued into his adult life. He played Semi-Pro Baseball, was a Golden Glove Boxer, and spent many years in competitive Volleyball, Racquetball, Biking, Weight Lifting and Bowling. He also loved to occasionally play a game of pool!
He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years Linda Sue Senter, his daughter Kathy Deener (husband Mark), son Lanny Senter (Madelyn), stepdaughter Sherry Massey (husband Randall), stepdaughter Gina Hubbard and grandchildren Courtney Johnson (husband Clint) and Connor Hubbard. He is also survived by his youngest sister Cozzett Markham (husband Ken) of Denver, Colorado, Cousin Glenda Sissel (husband Michael) and a host of much loved cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by one brother Frankie Joe Senter, three sisters Marie Adair, Jewel Morrow, and his twin Rose Lee Caillouet and four infant siblings.
Roland touched the lives of many with his sense of humor and he was well-known for his teasing and story-telling but most of all his kind heart. He was a member of Mineola Church of Christ and a faithful servant of Jesus Christ.
