Se sentía inmensamente orgulloso de su posición dentro del servicio secreto guatemalteco, donde protegía diligentemente a los políticos en el cargo. Su compromiso de servir a los demás demostró su profundo sentido de lealtad y amor por su país.

Fuera del trabajo y la vida familiar, Rolando disfrutaba cantar karaoke y escuchar música de diversos géneros. Ya fuera cantando sus canciones favoritas o sumergiéndose en las melodías, la música era una fuente de gran alegría y relajación para él.

Si bien Rolando logró muchas cosas en su vida, nada lo enorgullecía más que los éxitos de sus hijos. Encontró una inmensa alegría y satisfacción al ser testigo de sus logros, regocijándose en cada hito que alcanzaban.
