Michael Alan Roach, aka "Roach", age 28, born April 26, 1989. Born, lived, in McHenry, IL. Died August 31, 2017.

Michael had a huge heart. He would give you his last dollar if that's what was needed to better your situation. Michael touched everybody's life, some good, some bad, but always memorable and now that's all any of us have left of him. Michael struggled with his demons like so many out there do. Oh how he fought a good fight and with any good fight there can only be one winner...Michael had a relapse and his demons won.

He is peacefully in Heaven now with his Nana, Wanita L. Adams; Grandma, Irene Gamboa; his uncles, Kevin Allen Roach & Jr. Gamboa; and so many friends that lost their battles with their demons.

He is survived by Mom, Tammy L. Roach-Searcy; Step Dad, Terry W. Searcy; Father, Tony Gamboa; Step Mom, Krisse (Hensley) Gamboa; and Grandpa, Jake; Sisters, Lacy L. Searcy, Alexis B. Gamboa; Brothers, Campbell R. Searcy, Guy C Gamboa; his Niece, Coraline L. Brant, 2 1/2; and Cousins and those that Loved Him.

Friends and neighbors can gather Thursday September 7th from 4:00pm until 7:00pm Michael's celebration of life will be on Thursday September 7th at 7:00pm at the Justen Funeral Home, 3700 W Charles Miller Rd, McHenry.
