Obituary Condolences

BENNINGTON -- Anthony “Keith” LaRoche of Court Street in Exeter, N.H., died on Thursday, June 15, 2006, at home surrounded by his family, after a long courageous battle with lymphoma.

Born in Bennington on Feb. 1, 1958, he was the son of Dorothy Gray LaRoche and Richard LaRoche. He received his education in the Manchester schools.

On June 3, 1981, he married Jana Kerr in Dallas, Texas, relocating to New Hampshire in 1984, where he owned and operated Integrity Floors.

Keith lived life to the fullest. He played and loved with a true abandonment. His life was short, but no one will forget his kind heart and warm smile, forgiving nature and generous spirit. His family and friends cherished his contagious laugh, his outrageous antics and his gift of love to all he knew. He truly gave his all to those he loved.

Survivors include his wife, Jana Kerr LaRoche of Exeter; his mother, Dorothy LaRoche of Woodstock; his father and stepmother, Richard and Barbara LaRoche of Manchester; five sons, Noah LaRoche, Christopher LaRoche, Robert LaRoche, Timothy LaRoche and Elijah LaRoche, all of Exeter; his daughter, Allyson LaRoche of Exeter; and daughter and son-in-law, Lauren and Josh Robinson and their children, Ryan, Haley, Mia and Payton of Portsmouth, N.H. Keith leaves four sisters, Michelle and her husband, Scott Haviland, of Manchester; Laurei and her husband, Kerry Brietbart, of Weston, Conn.; Claudette and her husband, Wade Martin, of Berkley, Mass.; and Nicole LaRoche of Weston; one brother, C.J. LaRoche of New York City; stepbrothers Michael Evans of Granville, N.Y., and Mark Evans of Phoenix, Ariz.; a stepsister, Melissa Rice, of Manchester; also several nieces, nephews and cousins. Keith was predeceased by a brother, Christopher J. LaRoche.

Graveside services will be held on Saturday, July 15, at Dellwood Cemetery in Manchester at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Julianne LaFlamme officiating.

Memorial contributions in his honor may be made to the Seacoast Hospice through the Mahar & Son Funeral Home, 628 Main St., Bennington, VT 05201.
