Obituary

James Joseph Roach Jr. decorated Korean War Veteran and Purple Heart recipient, born July 18, 1930, Portchester NY to the late Frances Wing Roach and James Roach entered into rest on Saturday Aug 21. He was predeceased by his loving wife Bridget of 70 years, his children, Gail and Billy and grandchild, Michael and great grandchild, Frank. He is survived by his two remaining children and grandchildren.
 He was a dedicated Marine Corp Veteran and member of his local VFW in Wallkill, NY. He retired from Pitney Bowes after 25 years as a Field Service Engineer and though an amputee, could fix anything!
 He was passionate about his family’s Millbrook farm and the life experiences it offered him in his youth which he carried over to his retirement/gentleman’s farm; tending to goats, horses, dogs, cats and the various wildlife encountered on Stately Oaks.
"He will be sadly missed by all those who loved him"
