Roach, Michael John
July 29, 1970 - July 18, 2008

Michael John "Mike" Roach, 37, Bradenton, died July 18, 2008.
Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, with services to follow, at Hope Lutheran Church in Bradenton. Covell Funeral Home in Bradenton handled arrangements.
Survivors include his wife, Karen; children Keenan, Rachel and Michael Jr.; his parents, Jan and Chuck; a brother, Eric; his mother-in-law, A. Ginger Murphy; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
Mike was born in Pittsburgh and moved to North East, Pa., in 1985. He graduated from Tunkhannock High School in 1988. In 1995, Mike moved with his wife and children to Bradenton, where he was a certified auto technician, first for Cox Chevrolet and then, for the last eight years, for Sunset Chevrolet. Mike and his son, Michael, were avid ball players and dirt bike riders. They spent a great deal of time enjoying these activities with Gary Paquette and his son, Ryan, along with other longtime friends.
The family suggests, in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to the children's education fund.
