Craig R. RocheJune 16, 1946 - August 16, 2018
Roche, Craig R. 72; fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on Thursday August 16, 2018; Beloved husband of Marilyn Roche (nee Pejka); Dear father of Eric and Scot (Caifang) Roche; grandfather of Ryan; our dear brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend to many.
Craig loved and was loved by all of his family, which includes 6 siblings: David, Patrick, Micheal, Teresa, and the dearly departed Kathy and Kevin. He was a trusted and loyal friend and leaves behind his beloved golf group, along with many other good long-time friends.
His accomplishments include graduating with honors from Purdue University, receiving the Order of the Arrow as a Scout Leader, and his career as a well respected Field Examiner with the National Labor Relations Board.
An avid golfer, he loved playing sports and cherished any time he could spend with family and friends, especially enjoying his time as a T-ball coach. He was President of Mehlville High's Father's Club, an active member of the Football Boosters, and used his exceptional organizational skills to set up numerous golfing events.
Most of all, he was known for his lighthearted and ever-present sense of humor, which will be deeply missed.
