A memorial service is set for 2 p.m. Feb. 3 at Glencoe Union Church. Calhoun was born on Nov. 30, 1925, in Evanston Hospital (where he was the biggest baby born up until that time, at 10 pounds, 4 ounces). Roland was the eighth child of James Kent Calhoun, and the fourth child of JK’s second wife, Blanche Hurford. Calhoun was raised on Greenwood Avenue in Glencoe and graduated from New Trier High School at 16. He attended the University of Arizona, where he was in the country’s last ROTC cavalry unit, then joined the Navy in 1944. He enrolled at Northwestern University after the war, earning a degree in electrical engineering in 1949. He met his future wife, Shirley Somers, at Northwestern; they married in 1950. After graduation, Calhoun worked for Commonwealth Edison, then moved to Mills-Winfield Engineering Sales, where he remained until he retired as the president in 1988. He and Shirley moved to Glencoe in 1952 and raised their five children there. Calhoun held various public positions, starting with the presidency of the Glencoe Park and Recreation District Board, which he left in 1968 to become Glencoe Village President from 1968-1976. He was on the board of the Harris Bank of Glencoe for 20 years, raised significant funds for the new North Shore Senior Center as a member of its associate board, and was always active in the Glencoe Union Church, where he joined the choir at the age of 5 and held practically every volunteer position, including guiding younger generations as leader of Youth Fellowship. But his most highprofile position was on the antique high bicycle that he rode in every Glencoe Fourth of July Parade for decades. Calhoun and Shirley moved to Northbrook in 1996, then to Centennial in 2012, where they joined the Holly Creek community and became members of the First Presbyterian Church of Littleton choir. Calhoun loved trains, music, logical thinking, building and repairing anything, his communities, his family and his God. His mantra was: “Doing good, having fun, maybe both.” He is survived by his wife, Shirley; his five children, Geoffrey Calhoun (married to Deborah) of Conifer, Col.; Patricia Calhoun of Denver; Susan Nicholl (married to Matthew) of Framingham, Mass.; Catherine Calhoun (married to Nathan Ward) of Brooklyn; Donna Weinstock (married to Ray), a dozen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

She was a graduate of New Trier High School and attended Colorado College.
