Roley Kiser

July 25, 1949 — December 22, 2021

Roley Evans Kiser, 72 went home to be with his Lord and Savior on December 22, 2021

Friends may call Monday from 10 to 11 am at Roberts Funeral Home, Ashland  Chapel. Funeral services will follow at 11 am.

Roley was born in Dickerson County, Virginia on July 25, 1949, to Inis Virginia (Wright) and Nathan Kiser.  He was an ornery young man with a love of the outdoors, his buddies and his family.

Roley and his family moved to Ohio where he attended Ashland High School and proudly received his GED.

The one thing he wanted more than anything was to be a husband and father. He made that dream come true when we married Barbara Cornett Kiser on March 25, 1972, and they had two children.  Roley was also dad to his niece and nephew. Over the years he's been Papa and uncle to several generations.

Roley is survived by his wife of 49 years, Barbara, his daughter Heather Kiser-Franks, his son, Bryan Kiser and his niece, Sonia (Paul) Kelley.  He is also survived by his grandchildren, Erynn (Patrick) Franks, Kolin Franks, Rayna (Jordan) Kiser and Braxtyn Kiser.  His great niece and nephews, Benjamin (Kayla) Kelley, Joshua (Emily) Kelley, Tim (Griffin) Kelley, Laura (Ross) Kelley and his Great- Great niece and nephew Addalyn and Ian Kelley. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Janet (Susie) Kochel; along with several other nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was proceeded death by his parents, brothers and sisters, Richard Kiser, Russell Kiser, Ruth Ailer, Ruby Heitzman and nephew Timothy Kochel.

Roley lived his life every day to the fullest.  He enjoyed his "Rawhide" Therapy with breakfast and then would be on his way for the day. Enjoying his time with the Boy Scouts, camping, watching you tube documentaries, exploring for gold, garage sale treasure hunting, spending time with his family, watching the Steelers and the stars at night. Roley's most recent love was little Maggie Mae who he loved to walk through the park with and take on car rides.

We will miss him beyond words yet take comfort that he is happily in the arms of Jesus Christ and we will see him again.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The American Red Cross, American Diabetes Association or The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.
