It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved brother and uncle Michael Joseph Roche. As we are heartbroken to lose you, we find comfort in knowing you are now at peace and reunited with those you loved so dearly. Predeceased by loving partner Mary (2009); Parents: Susan (nee McCue) (2014) and Brian (2017) and niece Renee (1998). Left behind with you in our hearts forever are sisters: Mary (Gilbert) Parsons and Rosemarie (Robert) Baldwin; Brothers: Kevin (Mary) and Wayne (Linda). Mike adored his Nieces and Nephews: Ally, Jacob, Emily, Bradley, Jesse, Joshua, Tyler, Jennifer and great niece Hannah. Also a large circle of friends, especially his close friend Rob Saunders and extended family. Mike lived life as a happy, generous, kind hearted person. He approached each day with courage, optimism and determination, never complaining but instead reaching out to help others. He volunteered his time helping others in crisis as his life of sobriety inspired others as well. Getting up and punching a hard days work was what he did and often felt reluctant about taking holidays where he would most likely be found picking blueberries for other people. He was truly an inspiration to us all. Deep gratitude goes out to those who supported Mike during his illness: his coworkers at City Tire who were a big part of his life; Staff of the ATP Clinic including Dr. David Jones, Julie, Barb, Kim, Liz and Lisa; staff of 4NA and Palliative Care Miller Centre; Nurse Practitioner Charlene Downey and Dr. Essaji. We are forever grateful for the incredible support we received from Dr. Greenland, Community health nurse Heidi McNeil, Nurse Practitioner Carmel Collins and Nursing Navigator Frankie, both from Palliative Care. As Mike remained at home the phone calls and support we received was truly amazing. We never could have done it without your guidance, team work and sincere concerns. We are eternally grateful! Resting at Barrett’s Funeral Home 73 Commonwealth Ave., Mt Pearl on Friday June 15, 6-9 pm; Saturday 12-4 and 6-9 and Sunday 10-12. Funeral service will be held on Sunday June 17, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. from Barrett’s Funeral Chapel Mt. Pearl. Cremation to follow with Inurnment to take place at a later date. Flowers are gratefully accepted or donations may be made to Light The Night Walk taking place October 13, 2018 in support of Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
