Mr. Eddie Roach

February 6, 1944 ~ December 9, 2019 (age 75)


There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear

down and a time to build.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-3


Eddie Roach was born February 6, 1944, in Tensas Parish to proud parents James Roach and Leila Roach.
