Obituary of Philip Dennis Roch
Please share a memory of Philip Dennis to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
ROCH, Philip Dennis July 15, 1942 – March 14, 2023 Philip Dennis Roch was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to John and Hermine Roch. He settled in Vegreville, where he lived until his peaceful passing on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at the age of 80 years. Philip was a skilled automotive mechanic whose career spanned decades and had him working on all size vehicles, including working as a heavy-duty mechanic repairing the large trucks within the Alberta Power fleet. Philip greatly enjoyed woodworking, and I’m sure many of his friends and family have some unique mementos displayed in their homes that he lovingly crafted. He was an avid RVer and loved camping. He would take his RV south to escape the cold Canadian winter and relax in the sun with his fellow snowbirds. Later in life he chose to leave the RV behind, traveling to such faraway places as Thailand, Laos, Philippines, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Philip was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and recently celebrated 40 years of sobriety. The fellowship of AA meant a great deal to him, as I’m sure the people whose lives he touched also feel the same way. Philip is survived by his loving family, sons Robert and David; brothers Edwin, Raymond, Wilfred and Richard; one sister Linda Domich (nee Roch); along with numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. In lieu of other tributes, the family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to their favorite charity in Phil's name. “God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
