Wayne loved life, was a devoted father and a kind and loving man to everyone he knew.   He was a sports fan with a passion for Virginia Tech football and NASCAR. He was a huge Doors fan and donned the leather pants to boot. He scored a major check off his bucket list when he finally bought and rode his first Harley-Davidson Electra Glide.
 He was survived by his wife of 48 years, Sarah; sons, Brian of Jamestown, ND, Danny of Poquoson, VA, and Cory (Sharon) of Poquoson, VA and three grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his parents, Floyd Michael Roach, Sr and Margaret Rogers Roach; one sister Debra Beverly; one grandson, Christopher; one nephew, Sean and one nephew LJ Beverly.
