William Timothy "Tim" Roach of Owensboro passed away at his home Friday, June 24, 2022, following a 15-month struggle with cancer. He was 61. Born in Owensboro, Tim graduated from Daviess County High School. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in business from Tennessee Tech, he earned a master's degree in management from Brescia University. Tim was a member of Settle Memorial United Methodist Church where he was a devoted member of the Sanctuary Choir and the handbell choir, in which he met his wife, Lori. He and Lori were members of the Settleites Sunday School class which he served as president for many years, having been elected in his absence. Tim enjoyed his family, music, bicycling, and fishing. He worked at SFG Trust, formerly Field Packing Company, where he had been a cost accountant.

Those who remain to honor his memory include his wife of 34 years, Lori Leach Roach; his sons William Alex Roach of Owensboro and Robert Kyle Roach of New Albany, IN; his parents William "Bill" Morris Roach and Norma Jean Driscoll Roach of Owensboro; his brother Terry Andrew Roach (Tracey) of Louisville; his sisters-in-law Robbie Leach of Hartford and Paula Harry (Tim) of Louisville; his nephews Sam Roach, and Matt Harry (Shannon), all of Louisville; his nieces Emily Roach Jones (Austin) of Katy, TX and Katie Lewis (Scott) of Louisville; 4 great-nephews; and special friends Maggie and Morgan Vooris who referred to Lori as "Nana".
