It is with great sadness and deep regret that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Raymond Alfred Francis Roach, on October 23, 2021, at Seven Oaks Hospital at the age of 91.
He was predeceased by his parents, Eva and Alfred Roach, brother, Clifford Roach and his sister, Lucille Nelson. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Beatrice, of 67 years of marriage; two daughters, Beverly (Richard) and Barbara (John), and all his nieces and nephews residing in Saskatchewan and Ontario.
Raymond was born in Watrous, Saskatchewan on February 19, 1930. Raymond worked most of his life with Western Grocers in the wholesale division, which he loved. After leaving Ontario, where he met Beatrice and married, he took a position in Turtleford, Saskatchewan as Administrator of the hospital. His life was work and enjoying time with family and friends. Whether it was at his home or at the cottage. His one accomplishment was bringing mandarin oranges to Western Canada. His main passion was his love of people who surrounded him with happiness, caring and much love.
A Celebration of Life will be held on November 3, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Wojcik's Funeral Chapel, 1020 Main Street in Winnipeg. Interment to follow at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home & Cemetery, 4000 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg.
Special thanks to the staff at Seven Oaks Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Raymond's memory to a charity of choice.

John 11:25-26 "Jesus said to her 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."

  • We lived beside Ray and Bea for twenty-four years and could not ask for nicer neighbours. We will miss seeing Ray puttering around his lawn and hanging out on the front step. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bea and the girls during this difficult time. Ray will be greatly missed. May he Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Tracy and Marc (Neighbour) on: Oct 30, 2021

  • My deepest condolences go out to Sargeant and Constable Roach on the passing of Mr. Roach. May this time of sorrow comfort you in the moment and heal you as time passes. I remember attending a pool party at Erin's house many years ago. - Posted by: Philip Bialk (Emceed at D.A.S.C.H. events) on: Oct 28, 2021
