Obituary:
Mr. Roland Gresham, age 78, of Murfreesboro made his transition from this earthly life to eternal life on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at his home. He was born on February 4, 1934 to the late Dave and Carrie Gresham.

He accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Meharry Seventh Day Adventist Church. He later moved his membership to Oakland Park Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Roland took an interest in guitar at the age of 18 and later mastered the guitar. His styles of music were jazz, blues, and gospel. He became a legend all over as word of his talent was spread about.

A man of many talents, he also had a love of gardening. His biggest passion was studying the word of God and teaching it to others.

He was preceded in death by his loving and devoted wife, Essie Gresham; brothers, John and David Gresham, and sisters, Gertrude and Burtrice.

He leaves to cherish his memory sons, Roland Eric (Jeneane) Gresham of Athens, Alabama, Reggie (Doris) Gresham of Nashville, Tennessee, Melvin "Badd Catt" Gresham and Alan (Thomasa) Gresham, both of Murfreesboro, Tennessee; sister, Shellie Jordan of Dayton, Ohio; sister-in-law, Delores Gresham of Nashville, Tennessee; four grandchildren, Helen, Erica, Jennifer, and Eric; a host of cousins, nephews, nieces, great grandchildren, church family, and friends.

 

Please keep the family of Mr. Gresham in your thoughts and prayers.
