Michael Alan Roach, also known as “Roach, age 28, died Thursday, August 31, 2017, at his residence in McHenry, Illinois. He was born on April 26, 1989, in McHenry.
Michael had a huge heart. He would give a person his last dollar if that’s what was needed to better their situation. Michael touched everybodys’ lives, some good, some bad, but always memorable. Now that’s all any of us have left of him. Michael struggled with his demons like so many others do. Oh, how he fought a good fight, and with any good fight. there could only be one winner…Michael had a relapse and his demons won.
He is peacefully in Heaven now with his Nana Wanita L Adams; Grandma Irene Gamboa; his uncles, Kevin Allen Roach & Junior Gamboa; and so many friends that lost their battles with their demons.
He is survived by his mom, Tammy L. Roach-Searcy; stepdad, Terry W. Searcy; father, Tony Gamboa; stepmom, Krisse (Hensley) Gamboa; grandpa Jake; sisters, Lacy L. Searcy, Alexis B. Gamboa; brothers, Campbell R. Searcy, Guy C. Gamboa; his niece, Coraline L. Brant (2 ½ ); cousins; and those that loved him.
