When he re­tired, he con­tin­ued to teach physics and in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary sci­ences for another 14 years (1963-1977) at Beaver Col­lege (now Ar­ca­dia rniver­sity), where he won a dis­tin­guished teach­ing award even though he was only a part-time teacher.

He was born on Aug. 31, 1914, in Providence, Rhode Is­land, where he grew up ZLWh fivH EURWhHUV DnG VLVters. He went to Brown rniver­sity (1931-1935) for his Bach­e­lor in Sci­ence de­gree and ob­tained his Ph.D. from the rniver­sity of Illi­nois (rrbana) in 1938. While in Illi­nois, he met and mar­ried his wife, Mar­garet E. Hedg­cock. They had four chil­dren, whom they raised in the Abing­ton School District in Penn­syl­va­nia. After 31 years of mar­riage, Mar­garet suc­cumbed to breast can­cer in 1971.

In 1974, Roland mar­ried He­len Hor­ton McCaa, whom he met at Carmel Pres­by­te­rian Church. For the next 36 years, they shared their love of life to­gether, in­clud­ing many over­seas trav­els and her pas­sion for wa­ter­color paint­ing and his pas­sions for mu­sic, writ­ing and the phi­los­o­phy of sci­ence. In 1990, they moved into the new Mead­owood Con­tin­u­ing Care Com­mu­nity, where they resided to­gether un­til He­len passed away in 2011, at age 99½. Along with He­len, he helped de­velop res­i­dent pro­ce­dures, com­mit­tees, the news­let­ter and the audio vis­ual de­part­ment, which Roland chaired for sev­eral years.

Through­out his life, Roland loved mu­sic, play­ing the piano and the or­gan since he was a teenager, as well as writ­ing sev­eral com­po­si­tions of his own. He wrote his school song and his own wed­ding march, which was later used by other fam­ily mem­bers. He and He­len sang in the Mead­owood cho­rus, and they con­tin­ued to play piano and or­gan duets into their later years. He also loved to write, and when he was 89, he pub­lished his book on the phi­los­o­phy of sci­ence: “Oceans of the Mind.”

Dr. Eddy is sur­vived by his sis­ter, Ethe­lyn; his broth­ers Clifton and Arthur; his four chil­dren, El­iz­a­beth, Wil­liam, Charles and sir­ginia; two stepchil­dren, David McCaa and Marian Thomas; and 12 grand­chil­dren.
