Wesley Roach Jr

August 30, 1946 — August 26, 2020

Wesley B. Roach Jr, 73, of Owensboro, went to be with the Lord on August 26, 2020. Wesley was born in Daviess County on August 30, 1946, to the late Wesley B. and Mildred Welsh Roach Sr. Wesley was of the Baptist faith and loved gospel music. He loved to play the guitar and mandolin while singing both gospel and bluegrass songs. Wesley was never officially in a band but spent a lot of time playing on front porches with friends and family. When he wasn't picking on a front porch somewhere, he was probably playing bingo.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Patsy Alvey Roach

Survivors include his siblings, Larry J. Roach (Bonnie), Ronnie R. Roach (Mary Lynne), Alice Taylor, and Brenda Smith; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Fordsville Nursing Home and all those who were involved in his care over the years.
