Rand Bailey Roach Obituary
Rand Bailey Roach, 69, businessman, loving father and grandfather, devoted husband, passed away on Saturday, May 16, 2015, in the arms of his loving family. Randy heroically battled bone marrow cancer for almost two years, succumbing but never yielding to the disease. His interment was Saturday, May 23, at Shannon Rose Hill Cemetery, Fort Worth. Randy, born to Major Phil E. Roach (USMC) and wife Floyce Roach on February 13, 1946 in Fort Worth, attended Polytechnic High School (Fort Worth), Texas Tech (Lubbock) and UTA-Arlington, graduating with a Bachelor of Business degree. He was an accomplished academic and all-around athlete. He was a gentle, strong, and kind man with a twinkle in his eyes and a delightful wit that brought smiles to those who met him. He was of extremely high moral character, choosing to do the right thing above all else. He married high school sweetheart Claudia Barnett in December of 1966, had two wonderful children and four grandchildren. They were happily married 48 years, calling each other "my best friend." Randy chose a career in printing, working for major printing companies and owning his own company. He is preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include: wife Claudia, son R. E. Roach, daughter Terri L. Roberson and spouse Ken, and four grandchildren: Phillip and Brandon Roach, and Alex and Nicholas Radford-Roach. Upon retiring, he and Claudia RVed around the US, enjoying the beauty of the mountains and rivers, and fishing. Randy loved to fish and release fish back to the waters to grow and come back for another battle. He has now "Gone Fishin'" where the really big ones live. He will be missed by all.
