Jerome W. Roach

February 24, 1943 — February 5, 2024

Age 80, of Lexington MN, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2024.

Preceded in death by his parents, Jim Roach, Betty Ann; his step-father, Ray Houge; and son, Timothy.

Survived by his wife, Diane; children, Pat Roach, Pam (John) Rivard, Paula Roach; brother, Mike (Jan); grandchildren, Boston (Cherry), Tommy, Mitch (Bethany), Nick, Brian (Brandi), Jessica (Austen); great-grandchildren, Kaydence, Kennedy, Danica, Camilla, Remi, Luxi, Ruby; and great-grandson, August.

Jerry was born February 24, 1943. He played football in high school and was a diehard Vikings fan. After high school he started a concrete company and even tampered in real estate.

As he aged he loved bowling, and even threw a 300 game in Forest Lake MN over 30 years ago. He was also known for pulling a few slot machines and getting out fishing with his brother Mike, son Pat, son-in-law John, and a few of his grandsons a few times - thanks to his son Pat.

Inside a shy personality, there was no doubt that he loved his family most of all.

His empty chair at holidays and get togethers will bring a tear to our eyes for years to come.

In our hearts we know he's with his parents and son and will never feel pain again.

A Celebration of Life we be held from 4-8 PM Sunday, March 17 at the VFW in Forest Lake, 655 12th St SW, Forest Lake, MN 55025.  All who knew Jerry are welcome.
