Roland Bryan Overman, Jr.

May 27, 2022, 76, Goldsboro –

Roland Bryan Overman, Jr. met his Savior face to face and was reunited with family and friends on Friday, May 27, 2022. Bryan was born in Wayne County to the late Roland Bryan Overman, Sr. and Katherine Gainey Overman. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters, Diane Brooks and Bettie Godwin.

Bryan proudly served his country in the United States Navy. For many years, he was employed as a project manager with American Towers.

Bryan served as a volunteer fireman with the Rosewood Fire Department for many years. He worked his way up to Captain, and later became Assistant Fire Chief where he served until his retirement. Bryan would stop anything to answer a fire call.

With a strong faith, Bryan and Glenda made certain that their family faithfully served the Lord and attended church together. He and Glenda worshiped and were charter members of Harvest Fellowship in Downtown Goldsboro. Bryan’s life was a testimony to his Christian walk as he exemplified what he professed each and every day.

Bryan was a loyal husband, son, brother and friend. He was a loving father and grandfather. Chris and Michelle were his pride and joy, but his grandchildren and great-grandchild were the apples of his eye. His legacy will live on through his children and their children.

At his request, the family will remember Bryan’s life privately at his home.

Bryan is survived by his wife of almost 54 years, Glenda Sullivan Overman; son, Christopher Bryan Overman and wife, Joy of Goldsboro; daughter, Michelle Overman Tadlock and husband, Steve of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Haley Tadlock, Zachary Tadlock and Matthew Lassiter and wife, Kayla; and a great-granddaughter, Emma Lassiter.
