Obituary

Our beloved father, grandfather and friend, Michael A. Rolirad, age 93, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

He was a proud veteran who served in the US Navy during WWII and was awarded two Purple Hearts for his distinguished valor. After 43 years of dedicated service, Michael retired as Fiscal Director from the City of San Antonio Housing Authority.

Michael has been a member of Blessed Sacrament for over 20 years. In 1996, he originated the Holy Hour of Reparation at the Oblate Grotto. He was instrumental in getting the Apostolate of Divine Mercy started at the Grotto. He was the Head Usher for the 8:00AM Mass for several decades and a member of the Holy Name Society.

He was devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. He was always willing to share this devotion with his gifts of rosary beads, prayer cards, pictures and posters, Scapulars of Mary and most importantly, his time.

He loved the game of golf, fishing at his favorite spot, gardening, was a prankster, loved spending time with his family, and loved everything about Texas, was a true Texas Native. And, he loved spending time with Cooper; whenever you saw our Dad, you saw Cooper ~ he was always at his side.

He is survived by his children: David G. Rolirad and wife, Louise; Michael G. Rolirad and wife, Karen; and Sharon M. Rolirad; loving grandchildren: Michael, Charity, Austin, David and Desiree; cherished great grandchildren: Noah, Alyssa and Jadyn; Keira and Rhae; and his faithful, much-loved companion dog, Cooper.
