Roland Brazier, a fine man, passed away on February 17, 2014. He was born to Georgia and Grover Brazier in Ft. Worth in 1922 and lived a life of service and devotion to his country, family and friends. He distinguished himself in WW II, having piloted thirty-seven missions over Germany, where he was shot down, captured and served as a prisoner of war. Returning to Houston after the war, Roland worked for the newly organized KGUL, Channel 11 television, in Galveston, and later served for 35 years as an executive with Taft Broadcasting Company, where he consistently inspired all those around him with his loyalty, commitment, generosity and dignity. He lived his later years traveling and making good friends all along the way.
Roland fought failing health courageously as the years advanced--never complaining, always optimistic. The friends he leaves behind will cherish his memory always.
There will be a gathering of friends at Bradshaw Carter Funeral Home, 1734 W. Alabama, in Houston from five until seven o’clock in the evening with a remembrance at six o’clock on Thursday, February 20, 2014. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation that would help a child in need.
