Obituary/Notice

Allan M. Roach, 68, of Girard, passed away on Thursday, June 18th, 2020 surrounded by his family. 

He was born on October 20th, 1951 in Erie, a son of Elaine Lamb Roach of Erie and the late Donald Roach.

He was a graduate of McDowell High School, and worked for and retired from LORD Corporation.

Allan loved camping with his wife, Gloria and his children; and later would take his grandchildren hiking on the trails of Elk Creek.  He was a huge computer enthusiast, from gaming, to software, and everything in between.  He was a hardcore trekkie, a fan of Star Wars, and loved anything sci-fi related.  As a huge Pittsburgh sports fanatic, you would always find him and Gloria yelling at the Steeler games on TV. He wasn’t shy about getting too loud, for his house was always the meeting ground for family and friends, and was often noisy from excitement.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Gloria J. Marchionna Roach and a brother, Donny Roach.

Allan is survived his mother, Elaine Roach, of Erie; sisters, Deborah Yacobozzi (Al), Carrie Wilson (Scott), Becky MIller (Doug), all of Erie; his children, Maria (Jeff) Schreffler, Tina (Darren) DeFranco, Jody (Jenny) Agnello, all of Lake City, Melissa (Bryan) Reeher of Greenville, Jennifer Roach, of Corry, Christopher (Niki) Roach, of Erie, Michael (Abby) Roach of Girard. He is further survived by his grandchildren: Jay (Brooke) Schreffler, Amber Schreffler, Braden (Sarah) DeFranco, Brandi (Brandon) Reiser, Danielle (Chip) DeFrances, Desiree Agnello, Devyn Agnello, Keenan Roach, Mason Roach, Ariel (Patrick) Carden, Carl Lewis, Hannah Roach, Jordan Roach; as well as his great grandchildren.
