R.I.P. Jim Roach

Following a long, brave and cruel battle with cancer, Jim Roach died this morning.  He will be missed greatly; especially by his family but also by all of Greensboro.  Jim was one of the good guys.

    Jim was a terrific person. When I came to work in Greensboro in 1989, Jim was one of the folks that welcomed a new face, and gave me and my company and my ideas a chance.
    As far as I’m concerned, he was one of Greensboro’s finest and will be missed for a long time.

    I would just like to thank anyone and everyone who was at the funeral showing support for the Roach family in this time of difficulty. I now have realized the incredible amount of love he had for Greensboro, and the even vaster amount he had for his family. rest in peace
