Rolly started his career in Sudbury at the age of 15 working for Queens Taxi. With his early driving experience, he was hired as a transport driver for CP Express and Transport and retired as a supervisor after 40 years. Well known in Val Caron as a skilled handyman and a place where neighbours/friends and family could gather for drinks, food and music.
